I am so excited to share this special DIY Pier 1 Imports Inspired Faux Rose Heart Wreath with you today. It was such a fun project too and I absolutely loved the way it turned out…..but if I don’t get it posted, it will be too late. It’s less than two weeks until Valentine’s Day! Where has this month gone?!?!
I found this “Faux Rose Heart Wreath” on the Pier 1 site as I was browsing through and loved it …. but it just came in red and that just wasn’t the color I wanted.
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you’ll remember these DIY Rose Topiaries I created last summer.
My goal was to find a heart wreath to compliment them, but I couldn’t find one that looked right.
So I set off to create my own and I am here today to show you just how I accomplished it ….. Let’s go!!!
Pier 1 Imports Inspired Faux Rose Heart Wreath
Begin by determining the size of the wreath you want. I couldn’t find a heart shaped Styrofoam in the size I wanted….but no problem.….we can make one.
Make a pattern out of an old newspaper page. Remember that when you insert the roses, your wreath will be bigger than your pattern so you will need to keep your pattern smaller than the determined finished wreath.
I love using these pins as they have nice large heads on them and the length works nicely to hold the pieces onto the Styrofoam.
Using a sturdy knife with a blade at least as long as the depth of the foam, carefully cut out around the pattern making sure to cut completely through on each side. This is a must so that your Styrofoam will have a nice smooth finish on the top and the bottom of your piece.
Once I had cut on one side, I flipped the foam over and cut through the other side where I could see the markings from the cuts of the first side.
Begin by cutting the heads off of your Rose Bushes. The bushes I use come from Hobby Lobby. I love to use these bushes for projects when you only need the heads of the flowers. They are just so pretty!
Don’t worry about getting them in the perfect spot.…you can easily rearrange each rose if you need to.
And …. that’s it .… you are done!
Wouldn’t these be beautiful used for wedding décor?
But … because I wanted my DIY Pier 1 Imports Inspired Faux Rose Heart Wreath to coordinate with my topiaries ….
I added just a touch of the blush pink rose ….
and I love them even more.
Be sure to stop back by soon to see where they ended up in my Valentine Decorating!
