I made the wreath by following a great tutorial from ddzine you can find here. Basically I formed a heart using a wire hanger, then threaded the burlap through until it was full. Super easy!
I was going to put a valentine silhouette or quote in this frame, but then I thought what says love more than a silhouette of your child!
For the pink flower balls I used the same technique you would to make fabric flowers but used streamers instead. I bought a round foam ball and streamers from the craft store, then made a TON of paper roses and hot glued them to the foam ball. I love the little punch of pink they bring to the mantel.
I am still loving banners on the mantel.. any excuse I get to make one I will! For this one I bought a package of paper heart shaped doilies from the craft store for .75 cents, folded them in half to give them more dimension and strung them reversing direction every so often.
Have a LOVELY day!
