Pour the glue into a bowl, dilute with water if you want,
but no more than one part water to four parts glue.
Cut a piece of waxed paper as big as you'd like your wreath.
If it's not wide enough, cut two sheets and lay them side by
side. If you'd like to make sure the wreath is round in the middle,
place a bowl or a plate in the middle of the waxed paper to
use to mark the center.
Cut about 3-4 yards (or less if you'd like to make little
doilies) of the white cotton (A). Dip it in the glue and make little lace-like loops with it on the
waxed paper. If you use up all the yarn and you
don't think the wreath is thick or wide enough, you can
always cut another piece of cotton and add more -- it is not
important if there is an extra end or two because they will
stick together! When you like the way the wreath or
doily looks, and before it dries, cover it completely in
glitter. If you'd like to speed up the drying process,
place the wreath in the oven at 150 degrees F for about 20
While the wreath is drying, make the red hearts.
For the red hearts, you'll need another sheet of waxed paper, and more
glue. Dip the red cotton (B) into the
glue and make hearts on the waxed paper. Be creative! There is no such thing as a 'wrong' heart!!
You can make the hearts small or large, and you can always add
pipe cleaners or other decorations to them after they're dry to add a different
texture. When you've made as many hearts as you want. Cover them in
white or red glitter (or both!). The hearts that look pink in the picture are the ones with the white glitter on them. You can let the hearts dry naturally or pop them in the oven at low temperature.
When everything is dry, it's time to assemble it! First, you'll need to shake the extra glitter off. This can, of course, be saved for a later project. If the wreath isn't stable enough, go around the back a few times with the hot glue. Working from the front, use the hot glue to
attach the hearts to the wreath.
If you'd like, place a red
ribbon at the top to hang it up!
