Dollar Store Craft: Heart Wreath

Crafts and decor do not need to be expensive to be cute. This heart wreath is made with items found at the local dollar store! Especially for a holiday like Valentine’s day – you want a little bit, but do not want to spend a fortune. This could easily be upgraded with nicer products from your local Michaels, JoAnn or Hobby Lobby too.

Notes:

• This is a fast craft. Everything came together in about 15 minutes. I swear it took longer to gather the items used on this heart wreath than it did to make it.

• This is a great craft for a kid’s door, or for a teacher to hang in the classroom.

• This can easily be adjusted to a summer wreath with a different scarf (say in yellow or blue) and different pipe cleaners (swap the red for yellow!).

Please note that even though this is a dollar store craft, you will need a few items that can not be purchased at a dollar store (or at least not at any dollar stores where I have shopped!):

That is the same wreath in the photo(s) above. I just placed it in different areas, some dark, some light, to show how the light and dark effects the look of the wreath. In person, it is simply stunning (truly).

Notes:

• Tulle is significantly more difficult to work with than a cotton material. Keep that in mind when making this wreath.

• You want your wreath nice and full. If you skimp, you cannot hide it. So, make sure your tulle is nice and full!

• Sequin glitter tulle sheds. A lot. With that in mind, I strongly suggest you cover your work surface with a towel (or it will look like a glitter-bomb went off in your house).

• We used pipe cleaners for some texture. You could substitute feathers!

• For this wreath, we used purple and gold with a green bead and pipe cleaner accent and black mask. You do not have to use the colors as shown. Mardi Gras colors are green, purple, black, and gold, so mix and match according to your preference. Break it down like this:

2 colors tulle
1 color pipe cleaner + beads
1 color mask

• If you want the same look we did, follow the color scheme used. If you want a different look, go for it! Your best bet is to start with your mask choice, and then match the colors to that (tulle rolls are easy to find). Just remember this is a sparkling tulle wreath, so make sure one of your tulle colors glitters with sequins.

• There are several ways to do the tulle color grouping on this wreath – two alike knot colors, three alike knot colors, etc. and repeat. Ultimately, after playing around and experimenting, this wreath was created with alternating tulle knots meaning one gold, one purple, one gold, one purple (etc until finished).

• Scissors
• Mardi Gras Beads
• 25 yards Purple Tulle (1 roll, 6″)

Glitter Mardi Gras Mask Wreath Tutorial Directions:

• Cut tulle into 5″ strips. You will get 180 strips per 25-yard roll.
• Using the 6″ side of the tulle, tie a square knot (left over right and under, right over left and under) around one of the frame times.

• Every other tie is a different color. You are alternating colors for this one. Leave the second outer row of the wreath frame empty for beads, pipe cleaners, and mask attachment.
• Push together after each knot.
• Use all 720 strips. Your wreath will be nice and full, but not squished.
• Wrap your pipe cleaners around a chopstick or a pencil to form spirals.
• Twist around the frame, and allow the curly ends to poke out through the tulle.

• Clip the ends of the beads (where the necklace meets) using scissors (to form a long strand and not a necklace). You can twist the clipped ends around the frame allowing the beads to swag down a bit. They will secure like a twist-tie would. You can use a dab of hot glue to secure in place if you like.
• Tie the mask to the frame. The mask should have ribbons on it making it simple to secure. You can dab with a bit of hot glue to hold in place.
