SPD: Valentine's Day Wreath

Hey y'all! Remember that one time it looked like a glitter bomb went off inside my living room? No? Okay, let's rewind to Monday then shall we?

Monday evening I was minding my own business watching the Bachelor and crafting for Saw It. Pinned It. Did It. Sounds like a glorious night right? Well it was, but unfortunately my craft went awry. You see, on Sunday I was at Michael's picking up everything I needed for my next few crafts. I circle the store twice looking for tulle. Well I found some...in the Quincinera section. {I didn't know there was a section for this, but then again I live in Houston.} Of course it was beautiful and bright pink, and it was cover in glitter. Well, we all know...





Don't be fooled by the pretty sparkles y'all. It goes EVERYWHERE! Just a fair warning. On the plus side my wreath is super, sparkly, pink and awesome. It doesn't get much better than that! So let's get started!

Here was my original Pinspiration. I loved the look of the tulle, but I wanted mine to be a little bit different. Here's what I came up with!






It's incredibly easy. Doesn't require super glue. And you can play with tulle. Win - Win - Win in my book.


What you need:
Styrofoam wreath circle
Lots of pretty tulle. {Sparkle tulle is great, just prepare for a shiny house}
Scissors
Embellishment


How to make it:
Cut the tulle in strips that are roughly 4-5 inches wide and 12 inches long. This may vary depending on thickness of your Styrofoam wreath.

Fold tulle strips in half. {You will now have 2 ends. The end with both original ends and the folded end.}

Wrap the tulle around the wreath. Open the folded end of the tulle to form a small hole. Feed the original ends through the hole. Pull tightly to secure against the wreath.

Repeat over and over and over again until you cover your entire wreath. You may want to do something awesome like watch The Bachelor while doing this.

Note: Make sure you loop your tulle around the wreath in the same direction. Otherwise it will look funky.

Add your embellishments. I simply added some sparkly hearts on a stick so I just fed it through the tulle. You can also bust out your hot glue gun to glue some details on if you want!


I didn't take too many pictures because I was too focused on The Bachelor and not getting glitter everywhere. Ooops.

Now get out there and make your own Valentine's Day Wreath! Who said that themed wreaths were only meant for Christmas??? And I'll leave you with this...





Don't forget to link up with these lovely ladies and show us all of your Pinterest projects! I get such a rush from pinning something and actually going through with it! Okay, maybe that's a little dramatic, but I do get pretty darn excited.




Until next time...
With love and God bless,
