I don't know about you, but I've been seeing DIY wreaths all over Pinterest. However, all of the tutorials I've seen use styrofoam or straw wreaths in the shapes of heart. I am not spending money on something I could potentially mess up, so instead I used cardboard.
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Cutting Out the Base
I cut out a heart shape from a cardboard box that was wasting space. I just drew a heart, cut out half of the heart, then folded it in half and cut the rest. After that, I cut out the middle by using the same method.
Step 2: Cutting Out Felt Circles
With a drinking glass from my kitchen, I traced circles onto the felt and cut them out. I probably used around five sheets of felt. I bought a huge pack of felt for two dollars (after a coupon) at JoAnn's the other day, so this DIY was basically a steal for me!
Step 3: Making the Ruffles
Now you're ready to start assembling. Grab a circle, fold it in fourths, cut the bottom off and glue onto the cardboard. Easy!
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Because uniformity is not my middle name, I made the felt circles go in all sorts of directions. Hot glue some ribbon on the back so you can hang it wherever you please. I really like the way it came out.
