I wanted to bring a little Valentine's Day spirit into our home, so when I spied a pretty pink wreath featured on my daughter Jessie's blog... well, I knew that was it. I hung it on the door of a cupboard in my craft room where the sunlight hits it. It's such a pretty spot of color. I'm going to hang something inside the wreath's center opening but haven't decided what it will be yet.
I am sure that you can devise your own way to make the wreath, but this is how I did it. You'll need a stryrofoam wreath form, 2 yards light pink tulle, and 2 yards dark pink tulle. The tulle is 60 inches wide, so fold it into four sections (half then half again) then cut along the folds and you'll end up with four 15-inch strips. Take each 2-yard long strip and fold it in half then half again. Cut on the folds and you'll end up with four 18-inch pieces. Weighting the tulle down keeps it from slipping while you cut it. Repeat with the other three strips. Do the same with the second color. Take one strip folded in half and loop it over the styrofoam wreath form.
Pull the strip of tulle through the loop.
Tie a knot with the two strips. It will form a knob that will prevent the loop from slipping off the wreath form. Push strips next to each other as you work your way around the wreath. Do whatever sequence you want. Mine is three strips of dark pink and three strips of light pink. Tie a loop of pretty ribbon to hang it with.
