Valentine Wreath Tutorial


It is a little late, but I am going to keep my word.;)  Here is a simple way to create a Valentine wreath like the one in my Valentine Vignette.

You will need:

  • a wispy wreath base
  • berry garland
  • burlap ribbon
  • decorative heart
  • faux greens

I started with a wispy twig wreath base, to which I added in a pip berry beaded garland.   I just formed it around the center of the wreath and attached it with wire.  Once it is attached you can pull out the pieces and berries to sort of ‘fluff’ it or fill it out.  This little step makes a big difference.  I then took my burlap ribbon and looped it around the back of the wreath to anchor my wood heart.

I placed the heart where I wanted it and tied the ribbon around with a looped knot.  To do this I just tie a knot with out pulling one side all the way through.  This heart has a wire hanger which I attached to the wreath base as well to make it more secure.  You could use some hot glue as well or more wire behind it. 

And finally, For a pop of color and to put a little ‘spring’ in the wreath I tucked some greens into the ribbon.


There you go:) 

An {easy} sweet and simple Valentine-y addition to your home.
