Tulle Valentine's Day Wreath Tutorial

I still had my live evergreen wreath on my front door from Christmas and wanted to replace it but wasn't sure with what. 
I didn't have a Valentine's Day wreath for my front door so I got to work on making one.


It was a pretty simple wreath to create as well. 
Here's the how-to:

Supplies:
-Wreath form- I used a 14" form
-Tulle
-Ribbon
-Cardboard tube pieces (toilet paper or paper towel rolls)
-Felt


First, wrap your wreath form with ribbon.

Then, cut your tulle into long stripes. I cut mine 12" long.

Tie your tulle into knots onto the wreath form leaving the ends long.

I used light pink and hot pink tulle so I alternated colors as I went.

I chose not to cover my whole wreath form in the tulle. I tied just a little over half way around.

I then created some rosettes out of felt.

Made some hearts using the cardboard tube pieces and painted them pink.

I cut some ribbon pieces and made little loops with them.

And lastly, I made some medallions out of paper and used some chipboard letters to spell out "love."

I glued the medallions onto the area with the tulle.

I then clustered some of the hearts, rosettes and loops near the top of the opposite side.
If you recall, I clearly made way to many flowers, hearts and loops in the pics above. I had other plans and once I got started glueing, I wasn't too keen on it. 

In the end, I am pretty happy with how it turned out. 

The hot pink sure pops off our teal front door too! :)
