Repurposed Scarf Floral Heart Wreath

Quick & Easy Floral Heart Wreath

This floral heart wreath is a fun project that doesn’t take a lot of time.

I’m not one to create winter wreaths/decor because, quite frankly, I have way toooo much winter outside these days.

I want my home to be bright and cheerful all year long, and that means color… and lots of it.

An inexpensive way to make a wreath is to find a cheap one at a thrift store and deconstruct it.

It helps if you don’t like the wreath because then you don’t  mind taking it apart.

Like this $3 red mesh ribbon wreath.

I like red, but I’ve never really been a fan of mesh ribbon.

Not sure why, but it just doesn’t float my boat.

There’s so much of it I wasn’t even sure what shape this thing was supposed to be.

Until I turned it over and saw that underneath all that ribbon was a large metal heart wreath frame.

Jackpot!.

With all that mesh you couldn’t see from the front that this wreath was a heart shape.

I’m not a Valentine’s Day gal, but I do love hearts…. all year round.

The ribbon was tied on to the frame with red pipe cleaners, probably about fifty of them.

I stuffed all that ribbon into a basket. It seemed to go on forever.

I’ll probably give it back to the thrift store, if they’ll take it.

I’m keeping all the pipe cleaners though because they might come in handy at Christmastime.

Here’s the 18 inch high metal frame that I was left with after all that deconstruction.

This by itself is worth more than $3.

 

Using  Scarves to Create a Floral Heart Wreath

pink and green scarves and metal heart wreath frame

I looked through my scarf stash and found these two fluffy scarf beauties, which cost me 50 cents each.

Scarves are one of my go to items for creating wreaths. They make it so easy, and the creative possibilities are endless.

  wrapping green scarf around bottom of metal wreath frame

I wrapped the green scarf around the bottom half and just tucked the ends in.

This is supposed to represent the beautiful green grass of spring and summer, which we won’t be seeing here for quite some time.

  wrapping pink scarf around top of metal wreath frame

And then I wrapped the pink scarf around the top half of the wreath, again tucking the ends in.

This is supposed to represent the flowers of spring and summer.

  hot glued flowers onto pink scarf for floral heart wreath

I thrifted these artificial flowers a few years ago for $2, and they’ve been waiting for the perfect project for them.

And this is it!

All it took to add the flowers was some hot glue.

After they’re attached the scarf still lets you play with them a bit.

Here’s my wreath on my living room wall.

It really pops against the white.

The deconstruction actually took longer than creating the new wreath, which only took about 15 minutes.

Removing all that red mesh and the pipe cleaners took almost a half an hour. They were twisted rather tight.

But I’m so happy that I did it. This wreath is much more me.

And here it is hanging on the burlap and chicken wire frame in the master bedroom.

Wreaths aren’t just for front doors, they can be displayed on any wall in any room.

And here it is on the front door, which is the door into the kitchen.

It’s such a happy and cheerful wreath, and it cost me just $6 to put it together.

It brings a smile to my face on these cold snowy winter days.

There’s no rule heart wreaths have to be red, or that they’re only for Valentine’s Day.

They can be any color, or any combo of colors, and can be displayed any time of the year.

I have my living room heart pillow, which you can see in my diy striped plywood floor makeover, and my repurposed curlers heart wreath on display all the time.

There really is no wrong here.

All that matters is that you love it as much as I love mine.

This wreath will take me right through to spring when the real grass will be green again, and the gardens will be filled with beautiful colorful flowers.

 

Save this project for later by pinning!

  2. I just checked out your links to your other scarf projects to refresh my memory and was surprised to see a bunch I had never seen before. I thought I had gone through all your archives but I think I missed a bunch. It amazes me to see all the projects you have completed with scarves because I never would have thought to use them in these ways. You are doing a wonderful job of keeping me inspired and sparking new ideas including this pretty one above. Thanks again for your creativity and imagination!

I’ll have to check the bag to see if I might still have them. In the meantime, thanks for refreshing my memory! Your wreath is so SPRING! Just love it! Dona
