Valentine Wreaths {Part Three}

Alright.  I saved this one for last because although it is easy, it is very time consuming.  That being said, I think this might be my favorite.

Supplies
  • Scissors
  • Lots of red felt (about 13 sheets)
  • Low-melt glue gun and sticks
  • 12 inch wire wreath frame
  • Ribbon to hang (I used 7/8 inch wide white grosgrain ribbon)
  • Spool of 5/8 inch red velvet ribbon
Directions
  1. Make 90 felt roses.  I made them with one 2 inch diameter circle, and one 2.5 inch diameter circle each.
  2. Glue ribbon to the top of the wire frame--this helps the roses stay in place while you are gluing, and fills the gap between roses.
  3. Stick the roses into the frame (4 roses in each segment of the inside circle, 5 roses in each segment of the middle circle, and 6 roses in each segment of the outside circle).  Tie the ribbon through and hang.

I will be linking to these link parties.
