Disclosure: I happily received a free wreath from Treetopia to make this project! About this Valentine wreath DIY: My good friend Jennifer Perkins is a spokesperson for Treetopia, a company that specializes in ginormous and gorgeous faux holiday trees and wreaths. When it comes to trees – Jennifer is like me in that we see EVERY branch as an opportunity for embellishment. So imagine how excited I was when Jennifer invited me to participate in a Valentine’s wreath blog hop! Not only that, each of the five of us on the blog hop are giving away a pink wreath! See below for the details!
The wreath we each were sent was 36″ and very pink and very fluffy!
I knew I wanted to make a shadow box but had to think about the engineering aspect and the weight. I opted for a large embroidery hoop. I inserted glittered canvas (yes, I just happen to have it on hand). Here is the trick, I put the right side of the fabric facing out the back side to make a recessed area.
I trimmed off the excess and glued crepe paper around the inside to hide the hoop.
As far as the inside of the shadow box, I couldn’t decide! Finally I opted for a fabric wreath I found at Target. Perfect size! I used Tacky Glue to affix it to the canvas.
Then I added a painted milagro heart in the center! I used Aleene’s Tacky Dots to stick the metal to the canvas.
See? It’s all coming together! For the actual wreath decorations, I decided to use photos of me and Patrick. I used Picmonkey to make them each the same size.
I picked up some mini-glittered clothespins to attach them, and I made little paper roses to fill in.
First I hung the shadow box, like this.
Then I hung the wreath on top. Then I put it all together with some other goodies.
Thanks for checking out my wreath project!
