Valentine’s wreath

I used a different wreath last year. See here. I didn’t like it anymore. I wanted more to it but at the same time to keep it as burlap. I removed the hearts, the glue was still stuck to the burlap so the only way to save this wreath was by somehow covering the glue spots, which I did.

To make the wreath I used:IMG_20120119_155855 (1)

The old wreath with burlap

Several strings of tulle in different shades of pink and red

Valentine’s Buttons and letters


**First was to tie all the tulle strings around the wreath interchanging colors. It would end up looking like this:IMG_20120121_134536


**Second cut the strings. I wanted the knots to look uneven and in different lengths:IMG_20120121_134824


Later I tied some pink ribbon to it as well and this is how it looked:IMG_20120121_135937


and after hotglueing the valentine’s buttons (no picture) I completed my wreath. And I like it!IMG_20120129_162423
