Ruffled Burlap Valentine’s Wreath

by Jane Windham on January 19, 2013

Ruffled Burlap Valentine's WreathI made a Valentine’s wreath yesterday, and since I already had a white ruffled burlap wreath, I decided to use it as my base.

ruffled burlap wreath I had made this wreath last spring, and the directions for making a ruffled burlap wreath are here.  First, I removed the lemons and the yellow flowers from the wreath.

 I decided to make a burlap envelope to hold some of my recently made fabric hearts. I used embroidery thread to stitch the envelope together.

ruffled burlap Valentine's wreath I  found that I could only tuck one of my hearts into the envelope, and then I embellished it with some lace, a paper tag, and a little key that says LOVE that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

It takes more than lace and ribbons

And lovely verses too

To make a Valentine that’s nice enough for you

It takes a world of special thoughts

Tucked into every line

And that’s exactly what you’ll find

Inside this Valentine.

Brilliant idea to use a wreath you already had! I need to get my porch decorated…my NOEL door mat and green wreath are still out there. Pretty sad! Maybe I’ll do that today. It’s totally freezing here and the wind is gusting up to 50 mph. Welcome to January in Ohio. Happy Sunday Jane!
