We came back from the craft store with rustic wreath frames, flower wrapping wire and a bunch of felt. We ended up with cute wreaths covered with bursts of felt flowers.

The felt flowers are super easy to make, super versatile and look pretty impressive for something that only take minutes of your time. And, today is Valentine’s Day…these are the Valentine’s flowers that will last forever!
