Can you do on Valentine’s day without a nice Scarlet heart? Right answer is no, which means that such decoration must always appear in your home for the holiday! It’s time to unleash not only fantasy, but the gentle feelings: today we together make a heart-shaped wreath of fabric flowers. Agree, this handicraft activity actually includes all the elements of Valentine’s day.
- sewing machine;
- the Red threads;
- stripe fabric red one and a half meters in length;
- another shade of red fabric Strip length 5 feet (1,5 m);
- glue gun;
- the basis of foam in the shape of a heart (you can replace the basis of cardboard).
before you start work, we need to carefully and accurately cut fabric for the future rose. To start take the first red fabric. It will need to cut them into equal strips, each length – 16-20 inches (40-50 cm) and the width is about 3 inches (7 cm). If you wish, you may adjust the size: the larger the cut, the thicker will be the rose, and the more-so it will be more. With specified sizes you need to cut 25-30 lines.
Take the fabric of another shade of red and also cut it 16-20 inches (40-50 cm) strips cm and a width of 3 inches (7 cm). Such pieces we need 25-30 PCs.
Fabric fold each strip in half and iron-you can do this by using the iron.
Stitch using a sewing machine each piece of fabric from the side edges. Stick around for the 0,2 inches (0.5 cm) from the edge. In addition, do not cut the threads of both — we need them.
Now the most responsible moment-gently pull the ends of the thread on each piece of fabric. Assemble the cut by waves, as shown below.
Lubricate the seamed edge using a glue gun and start folding the first nice napkin rose. Do this, as shown below.
Coat the underside of the glue should not immediately, but gradually, as you’ll wind up a piece to a flower.
Continue to collapse the section until it is completed. As a result, you should get the full, beautiful rose. Repeat the entire procedure from step 5 with each length of fabric. In the end you get to 25-30 roses each of two colors.
Now you need to prepare the ground for a wreath. If you have a finished form from foam, use it. If no such form, on a dense cardboard, draw the shape of a wreath to a thickness of about 2 inches (5 cm). Cut it with a knife.
Start pasting forms rosettes from the front side. Alternate two colors of roses to your wreath looks more voluminous and interesting. Try gluing the Roses more densely to each other, that the basis was not visible.
After the glue face, go to work on the inner side of the wreath.
Next, apply the outside of the wreath.
Now you need to think about how our wreath will hang on the wall. To do this, cut a Red Ribbon to a length of about 3 feet (1 meter). Fold the Ribbon in half and cut. Each of the pieces to stick on the basis under the wreath by using a glue gun.
Mark the desired length of segments, and their remaining tips bind into a beautiful bow.
Now your wreath of roses for Valentine’s day is ready! It remains only to choose the place and decorate your house!
