DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath with Yarn and Burlap
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.
**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) **Tizzy Yarn has since been discontinued since I made this, so try it with this white loop yarn.
**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 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
