Metal Ring for the wreath frame. I got mine from Hobby Lobby, it is in the isle with the macrame items. I used the largest size.
Two Shamrock and Berry garlands, I bought mine from Hobby Lobby
Shamrock Burlap for Decorative Bow
Hot Glue & Hot Glue Gun, this is my amazon affiliate link for the glue gun I use
This is a really easy craft to do. I first laid down the first garland on top of the metal wreath. I then put zip ties to secure the garland to the ring.
Once you have secured the first garland to the wreath, you place the second garland on top. I put the second garland the opposite direction of the first so that the berries would look fuller on the wreath. I zip tied the second garland around the wreath and the first garland. You can adjust the garland and berries after it is all attached.
I then made a bow with shamrock burlap ribbon. I laid various strips of ribbon down and then tied twine in the middle of the pile. I covered the twine with another small strip of ribbon. I then hot glued the two long strips of ribbon to hang on the back of the bow. After the bow is finished, I hot glued the bow to the wreath.
This is what the wreath looked like when it was all finished!
This is such a cute craft and there are so many ways you can decorate this and make it your own!
Small Candle Bowl
Medium Candle Bowl
Flower Candle Holder
Optional Decoration Supplies
1 Wire Stem
Hot Glue Gun & Glue (Link listed is my Amazon Affiliate link)
These are the three items I used for this project. You can use candle bowls and holder that you already have at home. I got mine from Hobby Lobby when their candle items are on sale.
The larger bowl will be turned over on the bottom of the fairy and the bottom of the smaller bowl will be glued on top.
I put E6000 glue on the rim and in the middle of the small bowl and then placed it on the bigger bowl.
I then put E6000 glue on the rim of the of the small bowl and placed the flower candle holder on top.
To decorate the fairy, I used felt flowers and lace wings. I used small flowers to decorate the fairy’s head. I glued those on with hot glue. I then hot glued a bigger flower on the side of the fairy.
To make the fairy wings I twisted the wire stem into two circles with a small gap between to hot glue it to the fairy. I cut the lace to be big enough to cover the wings and have a bit to fold over. I used hot glue and covered the wire and laid it on top of the lace. I then used hot glue on the back and folded the lace over. I put hot glue on the middle gap of the wings and placed it on the top of the bottom bowl.
This is the wood pallet heart that I used for this project. The first step I did was trace the four different sections of the heart on the scrapbook paper I wanted to use.
Then I cut out three pieces of lace to cover the gaps between the wood. I put a piece of double-sided tape along the edge of the gap and then put the lace on top of it. Then trim the extra lace that is not stuck to the double-sided tape.
Cut out the scrapbook paper that you traced the heart pieces on.
Then I decoupaged the pieces of scrapbook paper onto the wooden heart. I used gloss mod podge for the decoupaging. First, I brushed mod podge on the wood and then placed the scrapbook paper on the wood section.
Then brush mod podge on top of the scrapbook paper. Do this for all wood sections.
Comment below of you try this project or how you decorated your wooden heart!
This is a tutorial of how to decorate a grapevine heart wreath with felt. I bought the wreath from Hobby Lobby. It was on sale as a part of their Valentine’s Day crafts!
Grapevine Heart Wreath
Green, Red, and Tan felt. I used 5 red sheets, 1 tan sheet, and 1 green sheet
Hot Glue Gun
First, I cut out small leaves from the green felt sheet. I folded the sheet in half and cut two leaves at a time in a variety of shapes and sizes.
I then hot glued the leaves on the wreath. I covered half of the heart with the leaves.
I then made three different kinds of felt flowers to glue on the other side of the heart. For the rose flowers I first cut the felt into a circle. It can be an size you want.
I cut the circles into a wavy spiral. You can start by cutting into the top of the circle and then creating waves by going up and down with your scissors. You then keep cutting the waves into a spiral like this:
You can glue the roses together a couple of different ways. If you want it to be a tight flower then you would just put hot glue in the center of the middle and fold the felt in to make the center. Then roll the flower and add hot glue when needed to hold the flower together.
You can also glue the rose flower with a wider center and add a center with the other flower we will learn below.
To make the third flower I used the tan felt and put a line of hot glue against the edge and made a small fold. Then cut the felt where the edge of the fold is.
Once the strip is cut, then cut small slits on the folded side. Do no cut all the way through. Do this the whole way down the strip.
Once you have cut the slits you can add hot glue to the bottom of the strip and start rolling it together to make the flower. Add hot glue as needed to keep the flower together.
You can also combine both types of flowers to make wider roses with the tan loops inside.
Once you have finished your flowers you can hot glue them to the other side of the heart wreath. I used 9 flowers.
I hope you enjoyed this craft! Comment below if you give this a try or tell us how you decorated your heart wreath.
I have a lot of tree decor in my home! I have trees that light up, homemade trees, tomato cage tree, small pine trees, and pictures of trees. Needless to say, I love trees! They are so beautiful and when I see them or am around them in nature I feel so at peace. I think it’s because I am so in awe that God made such a great creation that grows so big and beautiful. Reminds me of how small I am and how big God is, which brings me peace. I wanted to share with you how I made the tree decorations I have and where I got the ones that I bought!
I use my lit-up trees every day and love them! I have two light up small tress and one large one that plugs in. They provide a good amount of light in the evenings. I have been going through a lot of batteries for the small ones since I use them every night. I bought all of them on Amazon. Definitely has been a good purchase for me. They are so pretty, but also very functional!
Here is my affiliate links for both trees:
Tree Wall Decor
I love this mural in my room! It’s so relaxing and pretty to look at! Here is my affiliate link. It takes up almost the whole wall.
There are several types of trees I have made. The first is toilet brush trees. These are so fun to make but a bit messy.
The second types of trees are yarn trees. There are two ways I have made these. Watch this video to find out how:
I have also made a tomato cage tree. These are fun to make. I chose to use garland for my tree but you could do this with mesh ribbon, burlap, or grapevine. Below is the link to the post I made previously about making the tomato cage tree with garland.
I bought glass vases from a local thrift store in a variety of colors to make mosaics. Below are the steps I took to prepare the glass for placement in the grout. I would recommend wearing gloves and eye protection.
To break the glass safely I put several vases inside an old sheet I was not going to use anymore. Then used a hammer to smash the glass until it was a size that was good for my molds. You could also do this in a pillowcase.
Once all the vases were broken to the extent that I wanted them to be I put them inside a plastic tote, so that I could grab what I needed once I was ready to make the mosaic. I ended up having a lot of left-over glass so this would be a good way to store your extra glass as well.
Using the powdered grout is fairly easy. You empty the contents into the mixing bowl and add equal part water.
Stir the grout and water until it is smooth and thick. After this has occurred you can pour the grout into the mold. Once the material is in the mold you can shake the mold to even out the substance. Then comes the fun step! You can put your glass pieces into the mold however you would like to!
After placing the glass pieces in the grout, let it sit in the mold for at least 24 hours for it can harden.
Once the grout is hardened you can take it out of the mold and place it as a decorative feature in your home or patio! My glass pieces were not all even and because of this it would not be ideal to step on as a steppingstone.
