How to make a Valentine's Feather Boa Heart Wreath

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I thought it would be fun to spice up my front door with a fun little Feather Boa Wreath



First: Gather your supplies! You will need:

A styrofoam heart form
Feather boa
Glue gun
Tulle or ribbon



Second: Start at the bottom of the heart (at the tip) and
glue the end of the boa on.



Third: Glue the boa to the top of the heart, making sure you glue
the rope in the middle of the boa and not just the feathers.

(Sorry for the crappy photos - I did this craft in my living room while
I was watching "The Bachelor"
A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! hee.hee.hee!)



Fourth: Continue gluing around the entire heart.



Fifth: When you are done gluing, cut off the remainder of the boa if you have any left and flip the heart over with the back side facing you.



Sixth: To make sure your heart - looks like a heart and to give it better form,
gently take a few of the fly away feathers and glue them to the back.
This will also hide any white that is showing in the middle of all that fluff!
Don't get too carried away - you still want it to be poofy!



Seventh: Use about 2 feet of tulle and tie a bow at the ends.
Glue the loop to the back of the wreath.



Eighth: Hang it up for all to admire and adore.

(I wish my door was a different color - Then you could see the cute bow -
maybe that will be a project for another day!)

I also just realized that I am going to spray it with some glitter spray -
to make it sparkle and pop!

ENJOY!

Summer over at Sumo's Sweet Stuff has a tutorial for a feather round wreath-
