Quick and Easy felt Valentine’s Day wreath
Are you bored of my Valentine’s posts yet? Well this is the last one I promise! ….I think so anyway 😉 I love the variations of felt wreaths I’ve seen but I wanted to make mine a tad differently so hear it is!
Take some thick cardboard and draw a heart onto it then cut your heart out. I folded it in half and cut the center out as well. Then I took Krylon’s dual and spray painted it red so none of the cardboard showed through.
Then, I made a bunch of hot pink and red felt circles.
Next, I folded them in half, then in half again, snipped off the bottom and put a big dab of hot glue on it.
I alternated red and pink and made sure they weren’t all going the same direction. I didn’t really want a uniform look… Once I filled my cardboard heart… voila!
I pretty much love it on my front door with the snowy landscape! So far it has held up well to the cold temperatures and the snow. 🙂
Hope you are enjoying preparing for Valentine’s Day! I’m so glad my crafts are done and now I have a few weeks to enjoy them! 🙂
I have never actually decorated for Valentine’s Day. This wreath is a great project and one that kids could do too.
this is super cute, and beautiful against the snow! I’ve been pretty obsessed with felt flowers lately, (thank you, Pinterest!) so this is great!
This is lovely & I love the warm feeling of the felt! It adds a nice pop of colour to your front door. 🙂 Very Pretty!

I would love to make this…could you tell me how big you made your circles? And how big you cut your cardboard hear?
sorry, forgot my email address…email@example.com
Cute wreath! Do you remember about how much felt you used? Yardage or sheets?
Hi, did you find out how much felt to use?
I LOVE this! So simple, yet classy.
This is darling! I would also like to know how much felt you used. Did you cut out the circles with scissors or a circle punch?
What size felt circles did you cut ? How much felt should one purchase to start the project and what size was the cardboard heart. Thanks so much! I can’t wait to make this.
What’s the easiest way to cut the circles? Very cute!
I saw the same question that I have. How much felt do I need to purchase and sheets or by the yard? Loved the wreath!
I made two of these heart wreaths in no time flat and they are extraordinary. Easy directions to follow and the result looks really pretty.
Curious how much felt you ended up needing? Or approx how many circles you used? I’m making one this weekend and don’t want to run out! 🙂
