Hi! Brittany from Crafty Mischief here!
I’m so excited to share my Heart Shaped Button Wreath Tutorial with you!

This is a great wreath for Valentine’s Day but you can also customize it with another shape and different buttons for any season or holiday!

I just love button projects and I love making wreaths, so why not combine the two for twice the cuteness?

The Ribbon Retreat carries a variety of buttons.
For projects like this the Color Blends and Buttons Jars are great!

I used Berrylicious, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Cherries Jubilee Color Blends for my wreath.
I also used the Red Hearts Theme Pack, as well as buttons from my own collection.

-Supplies-

Styrafoam Heart Shaped Wreath (OR you can make your own with Styrafoam sheets)
36″ of 5/8″ Red Satin Double Faced Ribbon
Buttons (a lot of buttons!)
Scissors
Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Heart shaped wreaths are hard to come by, especially this time of year.
If you can’t find one you can always buy the Styrafoam in sheets and cut your own wreath like I did.

Draw a heart shape on newspaper ,cut it out and trace it onto the Styrafoam.

Then, carefully cut out the heart shape with a knife.

Glue the end of the satin ribbon to the back of your wreath and begin wrapping the ribbon around the wreath.

Continue wrapping the ribbon around the wreath, gluing as you go.

The point is a little tricky, but just keep wrapping and you’ll get it.
When you’ve completely wrapped the wreath in ribbon cut off and glue on the back of the wreath.

Now for the fun part!
Simply start gluing the buttons onto your wreath.

My seven year old loved helping with this part.

Don’t worry, I didn’t let her use the glue gun!
I let her be in charge of picking out the buttons.

Continue randomly gluing the buttons onto the wreath.

When your wreath is covered to your liking you my want to removed the glue strings by blow drying your wreath.
This helps the strings melt away.

You could use a ribbon to hang your wreath or attach a paper clip on the back like I did.
