Valentine Wreath {DIY}

 I wanted a pop of color for my shutters and while browsing hobby lobby I found the most perfect roses. They are full, a beautiful shade of red, and are made of a velvety material which makes them look a little more real. They were the most expensive single stem roses they had but well worth it. (just hit the 50% week!)
First pop the roses off the stem but be sure to keep them attached to the bottom green bud part otherwise they will fall apart.
This is what happens if you don't get the green stem bud part...
Next, grab you hot glue gun and start gluing them into the wood wreath base.
And that its. Super cute!
