Valentine Wreath

Easy DIY Valentine Wreath

Totally a first for me! I finally decided to make a wreath, and what better than a Valentine Wreath ?

I knew four things which I wanted most definitely 1) must be red and white 2) the ring must not be thick and chunky - it has to be thin-nish 3) it has to have a soft romantic look 4) my mini rustic wreath with the little bird must hang on the inside.

Started gathering my craft goodies, but I still had no thin ring to use as a base ! I told Roy what I needed, and off he went {he has all sorts of stuff in his garage..}, returned with an old chlorine container's lid ?? Now what ... I thought maybe he misunderstood, but no he explained what he will do. See below how the container lid looked after he had a 5 minute go at it:  {The lid is around 40cm - 16 inches in diameter}

He cut out the center of the lid and gave it a quick sanding where he made the cuts so that it looks nice and smooth!
The other materials I used - Half a skein of a wispy {is that the right descriptive?} type of wool - Silver Butterfly - Large White Flower - Small dark Red Heart - Tiny Silver ribbonRroses - and off course my Rustic mini Wreath which I bought a few years ago

Top left - close-up of one of the tiny silver ribbon roses
Top right - my rustic mini wreath
Bottom left - I glued the heart onto the center of the white flower and added a heart Rhinestone
Bottom right - silver butterfly {this is so adorable!}

Basically this is what I did:

-Wrapped the wispy wool all around the ring
-Used a red ribbon to tie the mini wreath to the larger wreath
-Added the white flower with the heart 
-I could not get the Butterfly to stick using glue {as I did with all the others} - I ended up using a piece of    Prestik... that did the trick
-Finally I added the tiny silver roses

What do you think of my first go at a wreath? 

How is everyone else's Valentine crafts doing? Done a few yet, or still trying to get over Christmas and New Years ?


  1. So pretty Linda, and congrats on your first wreath. I have been so bad at getting myself together after Christmas I just took down the tree today :).

    I've never made a proper wreath, I did try once and my husband asked if it was a steering wheel cover - back to the drawing board LOL

  2. Super cute! Thanks for sharing! Hubby was definitley creative with getting you a ring!
