Valentine’s is around the corner and I wanted to put a wreath on my front door. I went to store to check out some home decorative at a craft store and I was not impressed especially the prices. So I went back home and check out my stash and this is what I came up with.
I will be giving you 4 sections for this tutorial: how to create the wreath/hearts, how to create the flowers, how to create the banner and the assembly of the wreath.
How to make the wreath:
1.Grab your dinner plate and a saucer to create the circle from a 12x12 chipboard.
If you have circle cutters then you need a 10” inch circle and a 6” inch circle to do this.
2.Outline the plates then cut it out. Take your knife cutter and trim out the 6” inch circle.
1.Print the template and cut your circles
3.You will need to trace (4) 3 inch circles, (3) 2 inch circles and (2) 1 inch circles; Ink it
4.Cut with in a spiral way leaving a little circle in the middle as your base for your flower
How to make the banner:
1.Cut a piece of chipboard 1 ½ x 11
2.Then cut these measurements from this piece: (1) 1 ½ x 5 ½, (2) 1 ½ x 2; Discard the left over
3.Take the two 1 ½ x 2 and find the center then draw a line from one of the chipboard and then repeat to the opposite side so it looks like a “V”; Cut that part out
5.Adhere the two short ones behind the bigger one but leave enough on the sides to look like a banner
The assembly of the wreath:
1.Glue down your hearts; add beading around the wreath and inside (optional) and 6 flowers (3 on each side) near the hearts.
2.Glue the sides of the banner; Adhere the 3 flowers on top
