Valentine Heart Wreath Sewing Project


Valentines Day is just around the corner. Try this wreath for a nice touch. what you need: 14" grapevine wreath OR trace around a dinner plate on cardboard. ( Trace again inside this circle about 1" from outer edge. ) Various red and pink
fabrics for hearts. Various red and pink
ribbons for bow.
Craft glue.
what you do: Cut out a dozen 4" high hearts from various pretty
fabrics. Cut two of each fabric. One for the front, one for the back. Use
pinking shears for this project if possible. Cut out a dozen 5" high hearts cutting two of each
fabric as well. Cut a slit about 1 1/2" wide on backing fabric of each heart. Put wrong sides of heart together and stitch around entire edge about 1/4" inside. Stuff each heart lightly, push
stuffing through the slit in the back.
Glue hearts at random on wreath leaving about 3" or so bare at the top centre. Hearts should overlap. Try to have each side different, not exactly the same placement of hearts. Cut 10 - 12 various
ribbons or raffia about 40" long. Tie ribbons in a large bow and glue to the top of your wreath in the bare spot.. Adjust ribbons to hang in front, down the back and around the hearts. Trim
ribbons so they do not hang longer than the wreath. This is an easy, fun project for everyone!

Unpacked my grapevine wreath and it is exactly the right size. Got some fabric to coordinate with some I had and ready to cut out the hearts. I'm thinking about doing a tie edown for each heart. My front door is protected from the weather but gets the morning sun and any kind of hot glue or fabric glue probably won't hold. Anyone got any other ideaas?

I do love your wreath and will be showing mine; completed or not at my ASG Neighborhood Group Mtg on Tuesday.

I am going to have to make this, probably a couple of these....one for my front door and one or 2 for the school (I work in an Adult Learning Centre) to raffle off to raise funds for the Benevolent Fund they have so that they may help students in need. The week before Halloween, the neighbour directly next to the school, had a huge house fire (the inside was totally damaged), the students and staff, in one day, raised almost $3,000. out of their pockets for this family. This School is mostly immigrants and low income to no income canadian adult (ages 18 - 80) students with the biggest hearts of gold. We have a food bank and a clothing bank that weekly I donate to. I have friends that knit and crochet hats and scarves, that I donate. OOPS...getting off topic here....so if it is ok, I can not find a link to the site to ask permission to use this to make and donate as a raffle. I hope it is ok. Anyways, I am excited, something so cute and easy to create!
Thank you for sharing this
