My mom asked me to bring her something for her door right after she had taken down her Christmas wreath. She said, "It can be really simple, I don't care if it is a heart cut out of construction paper."
Yesterday we were cleaning out the basement and I spotted this wreath that I had picked up at a garage sale last spring and I knew it was perfect for my mom's door. (I wish I would've made two!!) I love how it turned out.
I started by wrapping pink ribbon around it and then I found this laser cut felt in my stash, I have never used it. I had sewn the hanging down hearts when my sister-in-law was having her baby, I was going to make her a mobile....but I didn't like how it was turning out so I still have some of the stuff I made.
Everything else on the wreath came from my button jars and flower containers in my scrapbooking stash. The letters are from Close to My Heart and I covered them with some turquoise glitter. (I love turquoise and red together!) I basically just hot glued everything on to this wreath. The vintage sheet music was punched with a scallop punch....and if you have any questions about other stuff you can just message me.
I love making wreaths like this. I have one on my door at school covered in school supplies and the kids love it! My mom really liked this, she is so proud of me :-)
