Valentine's Wreath-A-Holic Tutorial


Can Someone Please Tell Me Why I Love Making Wreaths So Much??? 
I Just Lurve it, and here's my latest! 

Valentines Day Wreath 


I got this idea from one of my favorite blogs, Tatertots And Jello
She used cupcake liners to make her wreath below.

That made me think of a friend of mine who makes these O-Mazing liners that don't fade! She sent me some and I absolutely love the vibrancy of colors and designs!!! 

You can check out what Kelly has at: 

For my wreath, I used her Red/White Damask, Red/White Harlequin, and my absolute fave, Turquoise/Red Scroll! 

Everything I used, I already had, so this wreath literally cost me a few dollars!!

I had this ugly hay wreath sitting around for months and months, not knowing what to do with it...

 I covered it with red tissue paper. This is definitely an indoor wreath!

I didn't quite know if it would look okay to use all three of these designs, 
but I absolutely love the way it turned out!!

I turned the liners inside out and pinched the bottom to form somewhat of a flower. 
I hot glued the bottoms closely together, straight onto the tissue paper, alternating between the two red/white designs.

Next I took the turquoise/red, turned them inside out as well, then flattened them out. 
I layered the next liner on top but instead of cutting to make it smaller, I just bunched it a bit. 
I continued with 2 more for a total of 4, making each smaller.

I covered the messy center by coiling some red garland I had.

I'm constantly brainstorming to come up with fundraising items to sell for my Haiti Mission Trip and although I've never sold any of my wreaths, I'm thinking about including them into my Etsy...
