Something I would like to do this year is to have a new hand-made wreath on our front door every month. You can see the one I made for January here. I'm pretty happy with it. I wanted to search around for different ideas for February. I settled on this one and this one as my favorites and decided to make them both.... one for the door and one for a special place inside. This past Thursday, my buddy S and I decided to each make the argyle "sweater-ish" wreath together. We had loads of fun!
We used this awesome tutorial at Life, Love, & Photographs. (Thanks, Mary!) I can't make any improvements to Mary's tutorial, so I'll just share some photos. Pictures clockwise from top left corner:
- Wrapping wreath form with yarn - most time consuming part
- Placing cut out felt hearts
- Tracing pattern on felt
- Finished product!
This was a pretty simple project and I'm happy with the results. Because of the door knocker I have, I usually just hang my wreaths on the fish and put a ribbon around his tail.
What would I do differently? I wouldn't use quite as much hot glue. On the lighter hearts you can see where the glue has bled through just a little.
More to come on wreath #2! See my sidebar for the link parties I'll be sharing with this week!
