No Sew Valentines Wreath

Project by Helen Bowes
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I love to make little things with my daughter to brighten up our house. This year we have made a no sew heart wreath, the perfect project for us to do together.
Step one: Assemble supplies
To make this wreath you will need the following items:
Floristry heart wreath - N&J 2 Pack 12inch Heart Christmas Wreath Frame, Wire Wreath Making Rings Green, Extra Gift of Two Checkered ribbon, For New Year Valentines Wedding Halloween Wreath Decoration : Amazon.co.uk: Home & Kitchen
Series of fabrics
Pinking shears or scissors
Step two: Cut strips
Once you have chosen your fabric, you can choose the pattern that you want them to go around your heart frame. You then want to cut your fabric into strips around 1 inch wide by 9 inches long. I prefer to use pinking scissors to do the cutting as they leave a lovely zigzag pattern and the fabric edges don’t fray.
Step three: Get knotting
Now the fun part you can do with your children. The simplicity of this is that it is just a case of double knotting the fabric onto the frame. Start by knotting one fabric onto the frame in evenly spaced spots. This means that the pattern can be followed onto from this starting point. When young children are helping, it is often useful to lay the fabric out in the order you want it knotted onto the frame or let them put the fabric how they would like.
Keep knotting until your frame is filled and you can’t fit anymore pieces of fabric onto it. At this stage it will look quite messy as the fabric needs to be trimmed to size.
Step four: Trim and hang
Trim the fabric down so all the lengths are similar and the heart shape can be seen. Finish by added some ribbon tied to the back of the frame allowing it to be hung. Once you have made one, you’ll be making plenty more.
