Beaded Heart Wreath

We’re a few weeks away from Valentine’s Day, and what better way to decorate for the holiday of love than with a little bling?  Not the sparkly kind that goes on your finger or around your neck, but an eye-catching beaded heart wreath like this one:

To make this, you’ll need a styrofoam wreath (about $2.50 at Hobby Lobby), various styles of beads and embellishments, and a glue gun.

Start gluing the larger beads on first and then fill in with the smaller beads.  It’s pretty easy, but it takes a little while.  I’m glad I bought the smaller heart and not the larger one!

Keep going until all the visible areas are covered.  Obviously you don’t need to glue beads on the back side.  ;)

When you’re all done, tie a thin ribbon around it and hang it anywhere you want!  I like mine against this chalkboard.

Does your Valentine’s Day decor need a little extra bling?

    I’m not sure if I have the patience for that much gluing (ha ha) but, if I did, I’d love to make one of these. It’s so sparkly and pretty!

      Thank you Denise! I spread the gluing out over two days, so it wasn’t too bad. Especially if you have the TV on too. ;)

      Sentence Should read…
      …..thrift shops, pawnshops, garage sales, Craig’s list, and estate sales to find super cool and unique additions to the wreath. Regardless, my nine year old should love it!!!! Next, it’s time to make the heart mobile for my 14 yr old. How did you hang it from the ceiling?

      This is my first time on girlinthegarage. I’ll definitely be back!!!
