I love ruffles, I have them on my bed, on my pillows, and on my curtains, so why not have them on a wreath this Valentine’s Day? I don’t usually think ruffles at Valentine’s but when I saw this simple No-Sew Burlap Valentine’s Day Heart Shaped Wreath on Youtube I knew it was going look fabulous with my femmy ruffle decor and still be very rustic and completely in the mood of Valentine’s Day. To get started I went to JoAnn’s Fabric Store and used my 40% off coupon for a heart-shaped wreath form, and a roll of burlap. The only other materials I needed were things I already had, like a hot glue gun a fabric marker, scissors, floral wire, and some string.
I started by weaving my burlap through my heart-shaped wreath form and securing my first section of burlap to the wreath form with floral wire.
Then just bunch it up making ruffles as you go by pleating until you reach the end.
When you reach the end anchor the end of your burlap with more floral wire.
Then you just fluff it up and even it, then using your trusty hot glue gun, glue on your Valentine’s Day-themed decoration, like flowers or letters, whatever you fancy. Remember, as with all DIY there is no right or wrong way to do things, it’s about your own creativity and making your project to your own needs and specifications.
I hope you guys enjoy this DIY burlap wreath as much as I did, it’s really a super project and does not disappoint.
