This month our girls night out featured Valentine’s Day wreaths. My wreath that I created, one for me and one for a friend, was inspired by this blog post here: http://kamibuchanan.blogspot.com/2010/01/valentine-tulle-wreath.html
Here are my finished wreaths:
I apologize for the lighting. I took these with my phone I do LOVE how these turned out!
Here is a picture of the wreaths the other girls created with me that night. You can tell, we all did our own thing and that is OK!
Items you’ll need for the Valentine’s Monogrammed Tulle Wreath:
- Wreath form or wire (you can always use a coat hanger turned into a circle)
- Wooden letter (Michael’s for 2.99)
- Spray adhesive
- Mod Podge Sealer
Kami gave a great tutorial however, I’m going to add my helpful hints:
- When making on a wreath form:If purchase your tulle at a fabric store you will need about 8 yards total of fabric or 4 yards each in coordinating color. If you purchase the tulle on a spool at a craft store you will need about 80 yards of tulle or 40 yards each in coordinating color. I did the G wreath in light pink and dark pink. I did the E wreath in a white and dark pink.
- I love the look of the initial. It gives it that special monogram feel. My wooden letter was already white. I used spray adhesive and sprinkled glitter on my letter. I did this three times to get the amount of glitter I wanted. Hey…what girl doesn’t like to glitterize ;) To keep the glitter from shedding and falling everywhere you can seal it by using the Mod Podge Sealer. It does take a few good coats of the sealer. Here is a picture of the one I use:
