Covered the heart with ribbon and attached the wire to hang.

To make the roses I purchased 1 meter of red felt that made 63 circles using a CD.

Then I cute each circle onto a swirl. NOTE don’t make this a perfect cut it should be slightly uneven to make it look like peddles once you roll it.

Then I rolled the felt starting with the outside until it looked like a rose. Scott was off work with a hurt back so we hung out in bed watching a movie and rolled roses together…It was so much fun!!!!!

There should be a piece of felt in the centre what lays flat against the bottom; Glue that piece to the bottle piece to help hold the felt together and place upside down to dry. NOTE Make sure you have something to help place the bottle felt flap down so you don’t burn your fingers. I used another glue stick.

Figure out how you want all the roses to lay on the heart and glue each piece down

I had to make 7 more roses to fill the heart so this wreath took 70 roses in total. Depending on how you make your heart will depend how many roses you will need.
