Hi Sweet Friends!!!
Have ya missed me at all?
I can tell you that I have been a HAPPY
Happy Girlie crafting away in my newly
refreshened Craft Studio.
Today I whipped up this darling wreath.
I don't do much decorating for Valentines
BUT knew I wanted a unique, sweet
wreath for my front door.
So, while PINTERESTing I saw
a similar idea using book pages and
wanted to adapt one using simple,
cheap dollar store doilies.
(do any of you Pinterest?
Oh my, Oh my...)
Here's what you will need:
1 Package 7 or 8" Round Doilies
Round Card Stock for Base
Various Heart Shape Goodies for Center
This is EASY!!!
Okay first, you take your doilie and
make it into a cone shape.
Glue on just the edges and
attach to your cardboard base.
Oh...before I forget...to your back add
a ribbon for hanging.
As you attach your *cone* shaped doilies you will
begin to shape them in a circle. You will have to
overlap them in the center as you work around.
I always attach my ribbon with a button...
it gives it a more sturdy finish.
I placed a flat Doilie over my surface before I
started gluing the doilies...but you don't have to.
Okay...so now you have all your doilies glued on
it should look something like this one below.
Are'nt those edges puuuurrrty?
I just so happen to have a pink heart doilie that
I used as my base for the center decoration.
On top of that I placed a sturdy Red Heart.
I continued to layer hearts on top of each other
in varying sizes.
The one below is actually
a fuschia color and is felt.
Then I pulled out some vintage goodies I had and
glued this to the center of my stack of hearts.
There is no right or wrong way to do the center.
I would change this out and do different colors and
even make one with a springy feel.
Let your imagination do the ruling!
Am certainly LOVING how it looks now hung
on my deep burgandy door!
Please let me know if you do this or
are gonna give it a try! I so HOPE
I have inspired you to get out and
Wanna sneak peek at some sachets I made?
These are filled with laveder and smell divine!
Can you guess what I started out with?
These are something we all have in our home...
cardboard rolls from toilet paper!
Be inspired and Blessed!
