What you do

Cut out a dozen 4″ high hearts from various pretty fabrics. Cut two of each fabric. One for the front, one for the back. Use pinking shears for this project if possible. // Cut out a dozen 5″ high hearts cutting two of each fabric as well. Cut a slit about 1 1/2″ wide on backing fabric of each heart. Put wrong sides of heart together and stitch around entire edge about 1/4″ inside. Stuff each heart lightly, push stuffing through the slit in the back. Glue hearts at random on wreath leaving about 3″ or so bare at the top centre.

101 Essential Tips: Basic Sewing

Hearts should overlap. Try to have each side different, not exactly the same placement of hearts. Cut 10 – 12 various ribbons or raffia about 40″ long. Tie ribbons in a large bow and glue to the top of your wreath in the bare spot.. Adjust ribbons to hang in front, down the back and around the hearts. Trim ribbons so they do not hang longer than the wreath. This is an easy, fun project for anyone.
