A Simple No-Sew Felt Valentine Wreath

Xavier and I worked on this project together (he was so funny handing me pins and grabbing the felt)
Materials Needed:
1 Foam wreath form (I got mine at the dollar store)
measure around the wreath to get the length of the felt pieces (mine was 5") and add 1/2"; make the width of the pieces 2"and you may need more pieces to make it all the way around depending on the size of your wreath
8 white pieces of felt  (mine were 5 1/2" x 2")
8 light pink pieces of felt (mine were 5 1/2" x 2")
8 red pieces of felt (mine were 5 1/2" x 2")
1 piece of felt 5" x 3/4" for the hanger (I chose red)
1- 15" x 1", 1- 13" x 1", 1- 2 1/2" x 1" of felt for the bow (I chose light pink)
stick pins
scissors
Start wrapping your wreath with your felt strips (I went white, light pink, red, repeat; but change the order to what ever floats your boat.
1.) Start by flipping your wreath over to the back and wrap your first piece around the wreath making sure the seams are on the back of the wreath and pin.
2.) Take your next piece and place on the back covering your first piece about halfway. Wrap all the way around.
3.) Pin using one pin as shown. Repeat until you make it all the way around the wreath with one piece left to fully cover it.
 
4.) Take out the pin from your first piece (in this case the white) and fold back.

5.) Insert last piece, wrap and pin.
 6.) Fold down first piece over your last piece and re-pin.
7.) Decide where the top of your wreath will be and grab the piece of felt for your hanger. Fold as shown and secure with 2-3 pins along the back.
8.) Your wreath will look something like this now. The super fun part begins now: embellishing. I chose to do a simple felt bow but I thought these Felt Roses from The Purl Bee would also look really cute. (I may still add them!)
 9.) Take your longest piece of felt (15" in length), fold in half and dove tail edges and spread out like the last photo.
10.) Secure using 1 pin in desired location.
11.) Take your next longest piece (13" in length) and fold so ends meet in the center. Take your short piece and fold around the center, making sure ends overlap along the back.
12.) Insert a single pin through the front of the bow (under the center piece and through the seams) and pin to the wreath covering your pin from the bow tails.
Hang and enjoy!
