I made a Valentine's wreath yesterday, and since I already had a white ruffled burlap wreath, I decided to use it as my base.
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.
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.
And since nothing says Valentine's Day more than classic red roses, I added these little felt rosettes that I found at Hobby Lobby, too.
I just spaced them out on my wreath. The rosettes do come with a little sticky back, but I hot glued them to my wreath.
This wreath was simple to put together, and before I knew it, I had a romantic and festive wreath to welcome any guests to our home during the season of LOVE!
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.
Love both wreaths! What is the approx diameter of your wreath and what width did you use for the ruffled strips?
Thank you so much, Gail M.
I think that I cut the strips about 3 inches wide, Gail. I don't remember the diameter of the wreath form but I'll see if I can find the wreath and measure it for you.
I love the wreath, and your new look, Jane! Featuring the wreath on FB today XO
How clever and resourceful you are, Jane!! I love all of the Valentine's Day touches on the "new" wreath--like so many others here, especially the envelope with the heart!♥
I love your Valentine's Day wreath Jane! The burlap envelope is adorable and perfect for your fabric heart ♥!
This is a beautiful Valentine wreath. I'd love to have you share this at my What to Do Weekends party. Lovely wreath. Linda
This is such a cute wreath, Jane. I also wanted to let you know that you inspired me with your adorable little stuffed hearts. I made a batch and will be including them in a post next week. Where o where is a "copycat" party when you need one? lol!

This is adorable!! Love the little letter. So sweet Jane!! I am off to pin it 🙂

What a pretty wreath! I love the little burlap stitched envelope! So cute!
What a clever idea to redo the wreath for Valentines Day. I love it.... Jean
What a cute wreath! I saw it on Pinterest and it brought me to your page. Great Job!
So sweet, Jane. I always enjoy seeing what you are doing! You have so many good ideas.
Very pretty, Jane! I like the white muslin better than the tan, esp with your red door!
Jane this is fantastic! I love it!! The red stitched envelope is my fave, what perfect stitches!!! I wish I could sew like this. xo
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!
This is the cutest wreath I've ever seen! Seriously! So sweet, just beautiful!!
