Valentine's Day Love Bird Wreath




I tried so hard to be original and different with this, but here's the problem:
I love wreaths and rosettes and birds and twine.
So I keep making the same wreath in different colors
So here is my happy wreath.

1. Buy a wooden twiggy wreath 
and spray paint it white.


2. Make red and white rosettes.

Cut 1" x about 8" strips of fabric.


Fold the strip in half.


Start rolling it from the center,
hot gluing it in place as you go.


Continue twisting, rolling, and gluing the fabric around the flower.


Glue the end of the flower to the bottom.


Do the same with the red strips.


3. Hot glue the flowers to the wreath.


4. Make the love birds.

Cut out 2 squares , about 3" x 3".


Cut out a bird shape.


Hot glue the pieces of fabric together, leaving a small opening for stuffing.
Lightly stuff the birds with the fabric scraps and hot glue it closed.


5. Make a little banner.
Cut 4 1" x 3" pieces of thick canvas fabric and hot glue it to a piece of twine.
Cut little X's and O's out of pretty scrapbook paper and
glue it to the fabric with Mod Podge.


6. Wrap twine around the wreath and tie a little bow.






Enjoy!

  1. How adorable! I made a similar "Lovebirds Wreath" last year and our birds look almost identical! If you have a chance, you can check it out here: http://itsalwaysruetten.blogspot.com/2013/01/lovebirds-wreath.html
