For my Valentines this year, I decided to make a rag wreath like I have seen in so many places, on my Wordless Wednesday and Friday Features. Seemed pretty easy to tackle, (has to be for me) and (not to much time) another important factor when I’m going to make a craft, “quick and easy”.I have a short attention span, so the quicker the better.
For my wreath I had my son take a hanger and form it in a heart, then I already had the fabric squares, I tore strips into 1 1/2″ pieces. I tied about 4″ pieces of the fabric until I ran out of the solid color then I went back through and did the same between each of those. It probably took me about an hour, but it was done over several days. For my bow, I used one final piece of fabric and tied into a bow. To make my hang, I used satin ribbon to hang my Valentine Wreath.
Something just for fun and took all of 5 minutes if that, I covered my favorite travel mug with Valentine scrape-book paper. I know it wont last long, but is fun to be in the Valentine mood.
Here are some of the other Valentine DIY Projects I have been admiring
From Carrie Elle, so many fun wreaths to make. Simple Valentines Wreaths
And from Intelligent Domestications, I love this wreath, if I had a grapevine wreath or something more substantial I would love to make this on, maybe next year.
