Wow, I cannot believe we are already in the month of February!! And anytime I think of February, I think of Valentines Day, don’t you?? I’m not the most romantic gal you’ve ever met, but it’s still fun to get in the Valentines spirit every now and then – especially when we’re giving away $140!!! Today I am teaming up with 13 other creative bloggers to share with you our very own DIY Valentines Day projects.

14 VALENTINE'S DAY  PROJECTS

My Project:

Ok so I have to admit, it took me a while to figure out what I was going to create for my Valentines project. I had a few ideas churning, but I really didn’t know which one to choose.  I finally narrowed it down to my favorite option which was a DIY paper and coffee filter rose wreath. I had been wanting to make paper flowers for quite some time and thought this would be the perfect project to try it out.

For today, we are going to focus on the wreath design and I will be posting the rose tutorial on Thursday. Some of my supplies I already had on hand, like the fabric and hanging ribbon. I used scrapbook paper and coffee filters for the flowers. The coffee filters were found at the $1 store and the scrapbook paper was bought at Michaels. I also found the styrofoam wreath base at Michaels as well for around $8 or $9. There are two types of styrofoam wreaths you will find when you walk into a craft store. One has a more condensed consistency. Always use the more condensed styrofoam when you know you will be dealing with hot glue. The harder styrofoam won’t melt from the hot glue like the standard styrofoam will.

I first created a hand full of paper and coffee filter flowers to bundle on the wreath. Once I got tired of making the flowers, I decided I would move on to something less detailed.

I then moved on to wrapping my wreath base. I used about a yard worth of fabric and tore it in 2-3 inch strips (kind of like my DIY Photography Backdrop I posted about a while back). I then began tightly wrapping (and hot gluing) my fabric around the styrofoam wreath.

After it was completely wrapped, I then started arranging (and hot gluing) my flowers in a random assortment. What do you think??
