I love decorating for Valentine’s Day. I’ve made wreaths, banners, hearts, and love note boxes. Valentines is a great excuse for adding little touches of LOVE throughout my home, not to mention it’s THRILLING for my kids. Especially my 5 year old daughter- she loves anything frilly, sparkly, and covered with hearts.
So when a bunch of us bloggers were challenged by one of my favorite local stores (who am I kidding? It’s my HUSBAND’S favorite store), Smith and Edwards, to create something for Valentine’s Day with their awesome tulle, I knew I wanted to do something my little girl could help with.
Tulle (about a roll and a half)
a wreath form (or a paper plate)
and a little wooden heart.
A wreath form would have been ideal for this project, but let’s be honest, I didn’t have one… So I grabbed the closest circular thing I could find… a paper plate. I simply cut out the center (and when I say I, I mean my 5 year old daughter- because this was HER project).
Once I had had my “wreath form”, I cut a bunch of strips of tulle the same length- about 12 inches. Then I started wrapping them around the paper plate.
You’ll take each tulle strip and fold it in half, making a loop.
Then pull the tails back through the loop.
Pull it tight, and you’re done… Now do this about 100 more times, until your entire wreath is full.
Then, we added a little wooden heart to the center, hung with some white tulle, of course! And we hot glued a length of tulle to the back to hang the whole thing with.
And that’s it! A super simple tulle wreath even a 5 year old can do.
This project is perfect for Valentines Day, of course, but it would also be great for anytime you need a little splash of color- I’m thinking for sports teams, birthdays, or any occasion when you need a little splash of color.
