Valentine Tulle Wreath

I love tulle!  It just makes everything more girly and fun!  I have been seeing these tulle wreaths all over the internet and decided to make one for Valentine's Day to grace my front door.  Remember the Valentine Rose Heart Wreath from last year?  My girls have been "borrowing" the roses from the wreath; so what better way to repurpose it than turn it ballet-inspired Valentine's Day wreath.

Materials Needed:
*    Styrofoam Heart Wreath
*    Spool of Light Pink Tulle
*    Spool of Light Purple Tulle
*    Spool of Glitter Pink Tulle
*    Valentine's Day pick


Cut the tulle into strips of approximately 6-7 inches in length.  Slip-knot the tulle around the wreath; similar to how you would when making a tutu.  I also knotted the tulle in place after slip-knotting it around the wreath, just to make sure it stayed properly. 
Overall it took me around 1 ½ hours to tie all the tulle around the wreath.  When that step was completed, I took the Valentine heart pick apart and stuck it into the Styrofoam wreath in various places. 


Look what you can get for an hour and half of your time and around $10.  A super cute home-made Valentine’s Day wreath! 

Happy Crafting!
