I love this idea, not just for Valentine’s Day but to hang in your bedroom all year round. This wreath has been made from broken pieces of vintage costume jewellery which I often have lying around in bags, unsused and discarded.
If you don’t have broken pieces then make the wreath using fabric and simply pin the brooches onto it. To give it shape and depth, cut out two heart shapes, sew them together into a cushion and stuff with wadding.
However, this way is super simple.
- thick cardboard
- pen and ruler
- sticky tape
- broken jewels
- PVA glue
1. Cut out a heart shape from the card. The size should depend on how many pieces of jewellery you have. I used a saucer to get the perfect rounded tops to the heart and then used the ruler to establish where the base point should be, then joined them all up together.
2. Cut this carefully out using the scissors. You could also use a thin piece of wood instead of cardboard.
3. Cut out some ribbon and stick to the back. If you use wood, then use small tacks to keep the ribbin in place
4. Using the glue apply the pieces of jewellery into place. Using a glue gun makes this process easier.
TOP TIP: Paint the heart black or another colour if you don’t have enough jewels to cover it.
So cute huh?
