Fold the wire cloth hanger to give it a heart shape. Start by making the tip heart with the lower part of the hanger, then rounded each side of the hook. I only used my hands and it works fine, but you can also use pliers.
Attach the eucalyptus branches on the heart shape by wrapping small pieces of wire around. You can overlay multiple branches for a better result.
How cute does the wreath look already? Now let’s add some flowers.
Grab The FREE flower template in my resource library (Click here to get in >>>> FREE LIBRARY ACCESS) and print on a colored sheet of your choice. I choose pink and white, but any pastel color will work great to make these paper flowers.
The flower is made in three parts. Cut the largest corolla following the line. Wrap the petals around a paintbrush or a small dowel.
Glue the flap on the center of the flower. Repeat the same steps to make the other two corollas that will form the flower.
Tae the three corollas and glue them together by putting a little glue in the center between each.
Glue a pom-pom to make the flower center. As you will notice in the last pictures, I changes my mind and decided to use wooden beards to make the flower center. Choose what works best for you.
Use a glue gun to fix the flowers on the wreath. I made three paper flowers and added some Gypsophila flowers to complete the wreath.
Done! You can use the cloth hanger hook to hang the wreath where you want. The eucalyptus branches will dry but will still look nice during weeks.
I love how this heart-shaped wreath turns out, it’s a cute spring decor. It was very easy to make and I only used a few supplies. What do you think? Would you like to make a heart wreath? What decorations will you add? A ribbon? More flowers?
