My Valentine Canvas Strip Wreath

Hi there! In this post I want to share with you all my Valentine canvas strip wreath. 

I also created a fun, layered scalloped heart and doily decoration that can be stand alone or attached to the wreath. 

I wanted to make a Valentine wreath but I didn't want to buy any new materials. 
After looking through my stash, here is what I used.
12 inch Styrofoam wreath
Canvas

I cut the canvas into approximately 1/2 inch x 12 inch strips. 


I then pulled every pink colored paint, spray mists, gelato, and Pitt pen that I had on hand. 


I painted and/or sprayed each canvas strip and tied it around the wreath form.

The gelato and Pitt Pen you have to activate with water to help spread the color on the canvas strip. 

For the paint, once the strips dried they get really "crunchy" for lack of a better word. I had to spray them with water to soften them up a bit in order to tie them around the wreath form. 



After I tied on each canvas strip, I knew it needed another decoration added to it. 

I pulled the Crate Paper, Paper Heart collection from my stash. I looked through my Valentine Pinterest board and found this pretty layered heart.

To cut the heart form I used the 9 scalloped nested heart cut from the Silhouette Cameo store. 

I then hand sewed them together down the middle and glued it onto a doily.

Here is my version.

I love how it turned out!




I added the love scrabble chipboard pieces down the middle from the Paper Heart Crate Paper collection. 



This looks really pretty just hanging from this vintage hanger. 




Here it is hot glued onto the lower left side of the wreath.




I love the layers!!



I also added some chipboard hearts and candy heart kisses to the right side of the wreath. 

These also came from the Crate Paper collection kit. 







One last look. 



I love the shabby chic look and the pretty variations of pink.


I am also so happy that I used existing supplies to make this wreath! 


I hope you enjoyed this post. 
See you next time.
