Foam Heart Wreath
For just about $3.00 you too can make this simple, kid friendly wreath!
Total Time: 1 hour
- foam wreath form ($.49)
- 2 Packages large, medium, and small foam hearts ($2.00)
- 20 pins
- 6 yd pretty fabric
- scrap ribbon
- hot glue gun
- Cut your fabric into 2" wide strips. I used a fancy, shiny fabric. You can use any kind you want.
- Wrap it around the wreath form. I used pins to connect and secure them to the back as foam tends to melt when hot glue is used.
- The tiny and medium hearts were great for mixing and matching. Attach with the glue gun. The glitter on both sides keeps the foam from melting on the hearts.
- I glued the double hearts at random angles for a random effect. Then I put red ribbon on the wreath. I like to go in the opposite direction of the wrapped fabric, but you can go in the same direction if you want.
- I did the larger hearts by cutting the red and pink together and cutting them into four pieces. I then reassembled it and hung it from the center. With a piece of 3' ribbon for hanger. This simple wreath is done.
- NOTE: If you do this with the kids, you either need to supervise the hot glue gun, or do everything with pins. I think white ball pins would look cute in the center of each of the pink and red hearts!
