This tutorial will guide you through the steps to make a Fabric Flower Valentine Wreath. Beginner sewing skills are required, and anyone from a new crafter to a "Martha" will enjoy this project.
Sewing machine and thread
Glue gun and 8-12 glue sticks
1 yd 45" wide red broadcloth
1 yd 45" wide pink broadcloth
Heart shaped floral foam
2 yd 1-2" wide ribbon
Fabric to Cut:
Red broadcloth: cut 25-30 2"x30" strips
Pink broadcloth: cut 25-30 2"x30" strips
Note: the longer the strips are cut, the larger the flowers will be. The larger the flowers are, the less you will need to cover your entire wreath, so adjust your strips accordingly. The wreath pictured used strips varying from 15-22" in length.
