Today I’d like to share with you the wreath that we worked on, staying on our Zero Dollar Budget Challenge for Valentine’s Day.
This green styrofoam wreath was first used for Halloween, then Christmas/winter, and is now making itself useful for Valentine’s Day. Hey, if it ain’t broke, keep on using it, ya know??!?
So for this, I gathered together:
- red velvet ribbon leftover from Christmas Clearance 2011
- cupcake liners
- tissue paper
- washi tape
- kitchen twine
So I began by wrapping the wreath with the ribbon, dabbing a bit of hot glue as needed as progress was being made.
I then made a few flowers. Felt flowers using this tutorial here.
A cupcake liner flower using the tutorial here.
And tissue paper flowers using this tutorial. Love them!
I then cut out the designs from the cupcake picks and glued them to my kitchen twine. Hey, I’m using what I’ve got and that’s about as good as it was going to get, ok!?!
I then added some wash tape to the twine and glued that to the wreath.
And there you go. My free Valentine’s wreath for 2013. I know, you’re feeling the love, aren’t you?!?
