DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath

So I really, really love decorating our home for the holidays—any holiday. Bryan makes fun of me, but I think it’s so fun to change up things around the house and celebrate the seasons. I decided to craft a cute little wreath for Valentine’s Day, and I love how it turned out! photo-11 You will need:

  • Foam Wreath (You can find these at Michaels’s or any craft store)
  • Yarn
  • Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Felt Flowers

I started by measuring and marking my wreath so I would know how wide to make the stripes.  The next step is wrapping your wreath. I do about an inch at a time so that the glue doesn’t dry out while I’m wrapping.  This step is pretty easy, but it can definitely be very time consuming. I suggest getting cozy with your glue gun and your favorite tv show. I watched two more episodes of The Good Wife while I made this—that’s what I call a productive afternoon! photo 5 photo 3 Next, use a glue gun to attach your decorative elements. I added felt flowers that I found in the dollar section at Target, but you could really do anything. Felt hearts would also be cute for Valentine’s day or even photographs. Get creative! I made a small hook out of yarn and hung it on our front door. Done and Done.  All in under two hours—that’s my kind of crafting!
