|Ruby Red Valentine's Heart Wreath|
To start I went to a supplier (namely JoAnn Fabrics) that sold lots of styrofoam wreath options and higher quality felt fabric in a variety of colors. To make a Felt Rosette Heart Wreath you will need the following:
1. Styrofoam Wreath
2. Approx. 3/4 yard of Felt
3. Straight Sewing Pins
6. Pen (I used a sharpie pen)
Step 1: Trace your cup onto the felt fabric with your pen to create uniform circles.
Step 2: Cut just inside the circle so that the pen marks don't show on your rosette (lesson learned from my 1st attempt).
Step 3: Create Rosettes by folding the circle in half once and then in half again until you have a rounded triangle shape.
Step 4: Stick a straight pin through all four layers of the felt at the bottom of the rosette.
Step 5: Start pinning the rosettes into the styrofoam wreath layering over one another to create a dense pattern of fluffy felt.
Step 6: Continue to trace, cut, fold and pin rosettes until your wreath is covered and to your liking. I leave the back empty so that you can lay the wreath flat on a surface or if you hang it on a door or wall it will lay flush.
