I had seen a cute Cupid's arrow and heart style wreath at JoAnn's about a month ago and decided that instead of paying the $29.99 they wanted for it, I could make my own for a heck of a lot less. And I'm so happy I did. It is so cute and the perfect addition to my Valentine's decor.
Can't Get Started Without:
~heart shaped foam wreath
~spool of jute
~red fabric (I used a thick velvet scrap I had, but anything would work, even felt)
~needle and thread to match your red fabric
Next it was time to make my heart shaped arrow head. First, I cut out two identical hearts from my fabric. I then hand stitched them together, leaving a big enough hole to put the fiberfill in.
After my heart was stuffed, I stitched the heart up a bit more leaving a hole just big enough to fit the dowel.
I then cut fringe in the top of each feather.
So pretty! :)
To hang your wreath, you could either tie a ribbon around the top of the heart, or punch a hole in the back of the heart. I chose to make a hole in the back of the heart as I wanted it to just 'be' on the wall instead of hang on the wall.
I love how cute and simple this wreath was. I'm definitely glad I decided to make one!
