Valentine Wreath & Valentine Craft | Valentine Yarn and Burlap Wreath. So cute! I put it up right after I took down the Christmas wreath in my dining room.


Valentine Craft | Valentine Yarn and Burlap Wreath

I get a little sad each year when its time to take down my indoor Christmas wreaths.  Mid January-February isn’t an appropriate time to put up my Spring Forsythia wreath yet, so I needed a Valentine Craft for these cold and dreary months in NY to brighten up my home.  That’s when I pulled out a blank wreath, some white tizzy yarn, some burlap, and pink felt.  And of course to make this Valentine’s day appropriate, I added some wood hearts.  This one is easy to make – and it sure is a happy piece for my home during what could be the dreariest season of the year.

Materials Needed:

**FloraCraft Straw Wreaths, 14-Inch Straw Wreath

**Darice Wood Heart Cutout, 2-Inch – it comes with 5 hearts

**1 skein of Bernat Tizzy Yarn (3-Pack) Marshmallow White (you may be able to get a skein cheaper at Michaels with a coupon)

**1.5 Inches Wide Burlap Ribbon on Spool – 10 yards (I found mine at Walmart in the Christmas Clearance section for 50% off.)

**Lovely Ovely Unusal Cotton Girls Baby Pink And Rose Feather Headband (my toddler won’t keep this on her head, so on the wreath it went!)

**Pink felt to make felt flowers

Instructions:

I left the plastic on the straw wreath, and wrapped it with the tizzy yard.  I wrapped it twice, to be sure it was fully coated in white and it left no gaps in between the yarn.

Then I had to fold my burlap in half because it was wider than the ribbon you can get at Amazon. But if you just have burlap ribbon, then wind that around your wreath and hot glue into place.

I played around for awhile trying to make burlap flowers and felt flowers.  My burlap wasn’t weaved tightly enough, and wouldn’t form flowers no matter how hard I tried.  🙂  I finally followed this You Tube burlap flower video and made some flowers out of pink felt I had on hand.

I also had this adorable feather girls headband.  My 19 month old won’t keep this on her head – she just rips it off and then proceeds to pull out all of the feathers.  So – instead of us both going crazy trying to make her wear it, I gave up and added it to the wreath.  It’s very Valentine-ish and thought it was a great way to use it since my daughter won’t have it on her head!!!  🙂

I also took some pink yarn, and glued it onto one side of a 2-inch wood heart.  I glued a second one onto the back, so that if the heart spins while hanging, you won’t see the glued on yarn.  I glued 2 of those on the back so that they could dangle in the center.  I added one more wooded heart on the front as the final decor piece on the wreath.

 With a little love, and a lot of hot glue, a beautiful Valentine wreath is born!!!
