Let’s make a beautiful Valentine felt wreath. Grab your supplies and let your kids help too!
Valentine Felt Wreath
I’ve seen this type of felt wreath for other holidays and wanted to make one for Valentine’s Day. I love how all the red felt pieces look together. It’s so full and fun.
Let me warn you now. This project is super simple, but it is not fast. Turn on a movie and let’s get to work.
Gather your supplies
To make a Valentine felt wreath you’re going to need the following supplies:
Red Felt (you can use the sheets or buy it by the yard)
Heart Wreath Form (there are a few options I’ll share below)
Straight Pins (the ones with no ball on the end)
Good Scissors (or a Cricut Maker; if you have the Maker use it and save your hands)
Once you have your supplies gathered you’re going to need to cut out about 200 – 3″ circles. You can do this with a cardboard template and good scissors.
You can also use your Cricut Maker and the Rotary Blade to cut out the circles. If you have a Cricut Maker I highly suggest using it to save your hands from cutting 200 circles.
Once your circles are all cut out you’ll need to decide how you want to proceed. I decided to start placing them right onto my wreath form.
Let’s talk wreath forms
I used a styrofoam heart shaped wreath form (mine is about 10″ tall and 9″ wide). I was planning on hanging my wreath inside my house on this window.
If you want to use a styrofoam form like I did you can find them at most craft stores. I haven’t found any in stock online right now.
If you’re wanting to hang your wreath on a door or somewhere where it will be moved a lot you might want to try a different type of wreath form. Styrofoam can be fragile and if it’s getting knocked around can break.
I’ve seen this newer style of straw wreath form that I think would work great and be less likely to break on a door opening and closing.
Let’s make our Valentine felt wreath.
Now that we’ve gathered our supplies (wreath form of choice, cut out felt circles, straight pins) it’s time to get assembling.
Fold your circles in half and then in half again. This is a great job for the kids. Let them fold while you pin.
Push the pin through the corner of the folded circle and then push into your wreath form. As you place your felt pieces make sure you’re putting them close together. Really close.
Keep pinning your felt circles to your wreath form until it is completely filled. Make sure you don’t skip the outer and inner sides. I left the back completely blank so it would lay flat against the window I was hanging it on.
To hang my wreath I used a strip of Valentine ribbon. I pinned it to the back of my wreath and then looped it around the back of my window frame on a hook I have there.
