Such a great idea. I had to share. Very pretty!!
I have a soft spot for chenille stem crafts, maybe because I remember crafting with them when I was a kid. I had a craft for the kids in mind when I made today’s Chenille Swirl Valentine’s Day Wreath, and Patty Schaffer’s Chenille Swirl Christmas Tree was my inspiration. Get the kids involved in making the chenille swirls; it’s not hard, and together, you can knock them out during an hour or two of HGTV. (Tiny houses – they are so cool, but where’s the craft room?) The kids will need some help gluing the swirls to the wreath, so read on for the details.
To make a Chenille Swirl Valentine’s Day Wreath, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” half-round wreath
- Chenille stems:
- 25 red
- 30 deep pink
- 25 light pink
- 12 white
- Metal arrow (I found mine at Hobby Lobby, and Jo-Ann Stores carries them, too)
