A simple wreath made from rope and scrap fabric is adorned with easy-to-make aluminum hearts…
This takes about 30 minutes to make – my kids loved working with the aluminum.
I used AMACO Art Emboss light weigh aluminum (available at Blick for about $6.00 for a 9"x12" sheet) to make the hearts; this stuff couldn't be any easier to work with.
This aluminum is slightly thicker than aluminum foil, but you can still cut it with a scissor and punch out shapes with a die cut.
To make the base you will need rope and fabric scraps. Loop rope into wreath form and tie in place with fabric strips.
Punch out hearts from aluminum sheet and press in your design using a fine point stylus (it comes with the aluminum).
Hot glue hearts to wreath, attaching them to the knotted fabric.
