Valentine’s Day is so much fun!
And anyone who knows me knows that I make a wreath for every season, holiday or celebration! My neighbours wait for it, as though looking for some kind of silent street entertainment! Ah, people are funny!
I am perpetually on the hunt for frugal ideas, recycled crafts or ways to incorporate sentimental nostalgia. Recently, our news featured a special on “Fast Fashion—Dirty Secret!” This inspired me to find a way to reuse cool fabrics!
This wreath will charm guests or the postal delivery person, and no matter who sees it, it will put a smile on your face!
Its cost? UNDER $10! You can make it with recycled fabrics. Here’s how:
You will need:
- A coat hanger; bend into a heart shape!
- Use the top of the hanger to create a hoop or hook to hang the wreath
- FIND—Old fabrics and cut into approx. 5” strips
- Fabrics that work best are eyelash wool, thin ribbons, grosgrain ribbon, organza, cotton, thin satin, linen or thin burlap—basically any fabrics that tell a story
- I added ribbon to hang from the loop at the top and then tiny beads. Against the varied fabrics, it takes on a vintage look; you could even use pearls or an old broach!
