Fleece, Yo-Yo's and Buttons on a  Valentine's Day Wreath

 

Isn’t this a sweet, simple decoration for Valentine’s Day? Or a baby girls’ room?

It’s a little time consuming but not very hard to make. Let me show you how…

First off you’ll need a 14 inch extruded foam wreath, some fleece and Fabri-Tac from Beacon Adhesives.

Cut the fleece in a long strip wide enough to wrap around the foam wreath and to meet at the edge. Glue the fleece around the wreath as shown.  Scrunch the fleece together to make it kind of wrinkly.

TIP: When I’m using Fabri-Tac to “sew” I often use pinch clothes pins to hold the fabric together while the glue dries!

Next grab yourself some yo yo makers from Clover (to read a review of the heart yo yo maker go to the Craft Test Dummies review). I used a large circle, large heart and medium circle.

I made about 24 yo yos with four different fabrics. I have to say, that I love the yo yo makers. They made it really easy!

Then sew buttons in the center of the yo yos. My buttons are from Buttons Galore and More.

 

 

Next, lay the yo yos out on the wreath in a pleasing pattern and then take small pins and pin them in place.

I used a bone folder to tuck the pins down in deep so that you can’t see them in the finished wreath.

You can either fill in the whole wreath or only fill in a portion of it like I did. And of course, it doesn’t have to be in pinks.. it can be any colors you choose! :)
