Easy Bead Garland Heart Wreath
This Valentine’s Day heart wreath is very easy to make, using simple supplies that I had on hand.
In my last post I shared my pink and sparkly wreath that I also made from a heart shaped hanger. You can see that here.
I wanted to see what else I could come up with for the same wire heart shape so I raided my Christmas decorations and found a bunch of strands of red bead garland.
I spray painted the hanger red just in case it might be visible through the beads.
Then I simply wrapped the garland around the heart, keeping it tight as I went. I put a bit of hot glue at the beginning to hold the garland in place.
Here it is after one strand of nine foot garland. Again to hold the garland in place I put a dab of hot glue at the end.
And I just kept wrapping.
Here it is wrapped with two nine foot garlands.
I decided that I wanted to make it wider to match the top middle section so I wrapped it with another layer using one strand of twelve foot garland.
And it’s done.
You could leave it plain like this…
or add a simple lace bow.
It really couldn’t be easier.
Welcome back, Tuula! I missed you! This is so beautiful and unique! Without your instructions it looks very intricate and difficult to make. I like the added lace ribbon . . . makes it very romantic, too!
welcome back i love how this turned out Tuula great job
That is gorgeous! Gotta love the red from Christmas….it just keeps on giving!
Tuula I really love that and you could change that up for so many holidays with a few wire tools. I think I want to try an egg for easter.
Well of course you came back from your cruise and made a fabulous wreath!! I love it and I think the bow sets it off! Now I want a cruise!
Tuula, you're a Thrifty lady, just like me 😉 love the up cycle for the hanger bent into a heart. That's what I used for my pom pom heart wreath. Why buy when you can use what you already have 😉
I thought at first you had strung all the beads on! Great idea using the garland beads. Hope the cruise was fun.
Well you did it again Miss Tuula – LOVING it – ( might be my favorite yet ! )
Our cruise got delayed till the fall – how was yours?
You just went on a cruise? Lucky!
This beautiful project made my heart skip a beat. Lovely.
Hearts and beads…so pretty!
Very pretty! LOVE!
