Happy Wednesday, Friends! Today's 15 minute fix is the simple heart wreath I promised to share. In fact, it's so quick and easy, I made two--this romantic floral version...
...and the cozy gray burlap style I featured with my Valentine mantel. Choose your favorite ribbon to personalize yours. Whether you prefer red and white for Valentine's Day or something more neutral that can be displayed year round--the possibilities are endless!
For each, I started with a heart shaped wreath form I found at the dollar store.
You'll also need ribbon that will be wrapped around the wire form. As illustrated by my two wreaths, completely different looks can be achieved by your choice of ribbon. The wider the ribbon, the less used. I used 3 1/2 yards for the floral and 4 1/2 yards for the gray burlap.
I tucked the end of the ribbon inside the wire form and started wrapping it around and around the heart shape.
There really isn't a "right" way to do it. Just make sure the exposed form is covered.
The layers will overlap. On the gray wreath, the ribbon edges were already frayed, which gave it a cozy textured look. However on the floral, the edges were unfinished, so I tucked them under as I wrapped for a more polished appearance.
To finish, I hot glued the end of the ribbon at the back of the wreath,
Last, I added a raffia bow. You can choose your preference of trim. If you would like to add the floating hearts from the gray wreath, look here.
