I love all of the burlap bubble wreaths I have been seeing around blogland and on Pinterest.  I wanted to do something for our door for Valentine’s Day, and I thought a bubble wreath would fit the bill.  But I wanted to do something a bit more fun than just red burlap.
I browsed around JoAnn’s for awhile and found a fabulous graphic black and white print.  I bought 1 5/8 yards, which ended being enough to cover the front of the wreath (not the back so it would lay flat against the door).
I also picked up straight pins, accent hearts and matching ribbon.

Cut your fabric into 4″ squares

Fold the fabric into half to make two triangles

Fold the one side backwards, making a quarter size triangle behind

Fold the other side forwards, bringing the quarter size triangle to the front.

Now puff up to make your bubble.

With this lighter weight fabric, I pull in the two remaining sides.

Then pinned all of the way through your great bubble!

Then I added red glitter heart picks that I got at the dollar store.

It added a little special something!

Finally I used matching red glitter ribbon and hung it on the door!

    Oh this is so cute! I have to admit that I would have quit halfway through it though. I did that last year with a valentine's rag wreath- but I finished it this year. So maybe I can have a bubble wreath by valentine's of 2013 :)

  2. The funnest part to your wreath is the texture. Enjoy your Valentines. :)

  3. Jen that is so cute! I love the black and white fabric!
