Heart Shaped Fabric Wreaths


Yesterday a friend of mine dropped off a mountain of fabric that she and her aunt didn't want any more...goodness, I am in fabric heaven right now. Tons and tons of fabric, some solids but mostly little calico prints.

Anyway, I was going through my pattern stash and came across an old vintage McCalls pattern from the late 80's or early 1990's and decided to make the heart shaped wreath. It took me less than 1 hour to complete and I think it turned out awesome.

I did this one in a red calico print with a green calico print bow so that it can be hung on my back door during the holiday season. However, you can use any color of fabric that you want to match your home decor and hang it all year long. I am going to make my auntie one next in blues as blue is her favorite color.

Here is one I did in the Pittsburg Steelers NFL Football Print


You can make these easy heart wreaths for any holiday of the year. Super cute for Valentine's Day, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween and all of those Patriotic Holidays too! Simply change up your fabric prints and colors to turn them into cute holiday wreathes!

Shelly,

I wonder if you can make it into a pot pourri "satchet"? What did you stuff it with?

I stuffed it with poly fiber fill. You could certainly make a potpourri sachet and insert that into the stuffing so that it had a scent :)
