DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath with Yarn and Burlap

DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath with Yarn and Burlap

DIY Valentine's Day Day 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’s Day wreath 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 DIY Valentine’s Day wreath is easy to make – and it sure is a happy piece for my home during what could be the dreariest season of the year.

Instructions to make your DIY Valentine’s Day wreath:

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.  When my daughter was a baby, she wouldn’t keep this on her head.  So I’m glad I found purpose for it.  It’s very Valentine-ish and thought it was a great way to use it for a craft project!

I then took some pink yarn, and glued it onto one side of a 2-inch wood heart and 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!!!
