My daughter was home from school yesterday.
She wanted to have a girls day out and shop but the temperature was 6 and the windchill was -14.
I am no one turn down a day out shopping, but when it is that cold I don’t go out anywhere, not even to shop!
Instead we stayed home by the fire and did a little crafting.
I wanted to make something for Valentines day.
I really don’t decorate for that holiday, but thought it would be fun to make a few heart wreaths.
Since we were stuck inside, I only used what I already had on hand.
I had some scrap muslin, some dizzy frizzy.
I found the dizzy frizzy at the thrift shop for .50.
I knew when I found the dizzy frizzy that I would figure out a fun craft project to use it for.
This craft is so simple, I just took some wire and made heart shapes.
With one of the heart shaped frames I took pieces of muslin that I cut 1/2 inch strips,that were ripped, and just tied the strips around the whole wreath making knots.
You can use pieces a little larger, but don’t make them too big.
These strips are about 5 inches long.
But don’t measure, it’s more interesting if these are not perfect and slightly different lengths.
I love how frayed the muslin looks.
Using the dizzy frizzy I just cut pieces off and tied these around the whole wreath.
Again no specific lengths, and I cut these off as I went along.
This is the wreath with the dizzy frizzy.
I love how soft it looks, I hung this on an old door piece from an old farm cabinet.
Here is the muslin wreath, It has a feathered sort of look to it and I just adore it!
This was so simple and so much fun to do!
Here is my muslin wreath hanging on my farmhouse door.
Rose’s are a must for Valentines day!
Do you decorate for Valentines day?
