3D HEART FLOWER VALENTINE WREATH
I am not one to go out and buy decorations for Valentine's, but I don't mind making and displaying a few crafts around the house.
Especially when they come to look like this pretty-in-pink 3D heart flower wreath. A little bit of effort goes a long way. Plus, it could make a beautiful gift for a friend or loved one.
To make a replica of it, gathering the following items:
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
Card stock in medium and light pink, light and dark green
12" floral craft ring (by Ashland at Michaels stores)
With the heart punch, cut shapes in both pinks and score them all in half. Tape three hearts of similar colour together to create a 3D shape, leaving one side flat. In total you'll need about 12 to 13 flowers (so that's about 36 to 39 hearts).
Use the circle punch to make the leaves. From one circle shape, you can get two leaves out of it by inserting it back into the punch to make ellipses. Then score each leaf down the middle. You will need approximately 42 to 45 leaves.
Start by hot gluing all the leaves around the craft ring in groups of three or more. Then attach a heart "flower" on top.
Cover the entire ring this way, trying your best to attach the flowers in an upright position all the way around. In the end, you'll be left with a beautiful product!
Total project time: about 1 hour.
