Stephanie over at The Enchanting Rose
Mary over at Visits with Mary,
made a Valentine Wreath, theirs were so pretty that
it got me to wanting to make one also. I had bought this roll
of burlap back before Christmas. Didn't know what I was
going to do with it, I just loved and wanted it.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with
it but I love rustic, as well as frilly things. What other
than use it for a Valentine Wreath!
I took a clothes hanger and my sweet hubby cut the
top off it and I bent it into what looked somewhat
like a heart to start off with. I did have to tweak it a bit more.
I then took a needle and some craft thread folded the burlap and gathered it around the edges.
I ran the hanger through the gathered burlap and did use a little hot glue in places to keep it where I wanted it. I bent the wire together at the top. I then found some red ribbon in my sewing box, and glued it around the edges of the burlap. I put the key that I received
from my friend at Christmas at the top and tied a ribbon above it.
My daughter stopped in for a visit and she made a couple of suggestions. Between the both of us this is how it came out.
Now it's been a few years since I have done this type of thing.
Years ago I did do craft shows and sold my items,
but since I have arthritis, my fingers don't like me doing this
These are the items I used.
hot glue gun and glue sticks
Needle and Craft Thread
After ALL that hard work it's time for tea!
Have you tried the Little Debbie, Red Velvet Valentine Cake?
Have a Blessed Day!
