DIY Valentine Wreath

I periodically do some craft projects for a neighbor who owns a scrapbook company.  She is on her way to a trade show this week and so I used some of her paper to make some layout and this wreath for her display. Once her trade show is over, I get all my things back so I decided to do something Valentines worthy since it is right around the corner.   I was excited since I need some more Valentine Decor.  I just love Valentines Day so much!  I'm excited already for it!  As I was making this wreath, I decided to take some pictures so I could share it. It is very easy to make, but definitely time consuming rolling all the roses.  However, I think it was worth it!  It made me happy when it was all done. 

Fill in entire wreath.  Then I added little rhinestones to the centers and inked the edges with some pink dye. Very subtle.
I am so happy with how it turned out and think it will even look cute in my girl's room after Valentines Day.

It was so much fun that I am making another more vintage version.  Maybe I will post it too when I am all finished.  All the paper I used for this wreath came from Three Bugs In A Rug.
