Simple DIY Floating Heart Wreath

Last year’s Valentine’s fabric scrap wreath was adorable, I thought, but–as usual–I was ready for something new this February.

So I pulled out the remaining red felt Christmas ornaments I’d gotten on clearance and laid out a wreath.

I wanted the hearts to look like they were sort of floating, without a form, so I painted a wooden wreath form the color of our front door using black craft paint (then a coat of gloss mod podge, since our front door has a gloss finish).

Then it was as simple as laying out the hearts to get the spacing correct and then gluing them down. I used tacky glue, but white school glue would be okay, too, in a pinch. And no worries about the glue showing, of course, because it will dry clear.

I started with a pale pink ribbon (previous picture), but I changed to a black satin ribbon (here) as a hanger, so it would disappear, too.

Even though you can see the form in the daylight when you are right at the door…

…all you see are the hearts when you step back.

I love that!

Of course, my porch planters could use a little love, oi! But that’s for another day, right friends?!

And while I’m in the wreaths mood, I’m thinking a great summer wreath could be made with all sorts of brightly colored little plastic toys all stuck to an “invisible” form, how fun would that be?!

So, anyone else have a cute Valentine’s wreath? Do tell! And post a pic on our facebook page–I’d love to see!!
