Valentine Tulle Heart Wreath

Now that Christmas and New Years is behind us, what do we have to look forward to?  You guessed it:  Valentine’s Day.  The holiday of Lurve! I see everyone else must be thinking the same way because I have seen Valentine’s crafts everywhere.   I thought I would wait until at least mid January but, what the heck!  If everyone else is doing it, why can’t I?

I decided to make a heart shaped wreath.  I used a wire coat hanger and bent it to form the shape of a heart.  I started to make a coffee filter wreath but decided to save my filters for my coffee and use up my stash of red nylon tulle.  I cut the tulle into little squares then into half again to make a rectangle, folded them in half and just looped them on.  If you’ve ever made a no-sew tutu, you know what I mean.  That’s actually what this was left over from.  I went all the way around and then once I had it to my desired fullness, pulled my loops tight and fluffed it out.  Easy as pie and didn’t cost me a penny!  I love how ruffly and romantic it looks.

  5. I made a wreath just like this one last February!!! We had a big blizzard and were snowed in for a few days without electricity, so I used what things I had on hand...too funny!!!!
