Ready to freshen up your decor? This DIY Valentines wreath is the perfect easy addition to your front door, and it’s so easy (and cheap!) to make!
I’ve been on a bit of a decorating kick here lately. We’re doing some updating to our home, inside and out, and I’ve got home decor on the mind.
Maybe it’s due to coming off a really long year, or perhaps it could have something to do with me being almost nine months pregnant and this is how I “nest”. I just want to decorate and look at all the pretty things.
Of course I also don’t want to spend all the money, so I’ve got to find a bit of a balance. DIY to the rescue once again!
I’ve got my mantle all ready for the next holiday to come but I want to add a little more Valentine’s Day decor to the rest of the house. Perhaps a new wreath is in order? (I always love a good wreath!)
This is a great option for Valentine’s Day with the heart-shaped style, but it’s also very easy to customize colors and supplies to your liking. Plus, everything is able to be found at the dollar store or Amazon for cheap! (Those are the best kinds of DIY projects, right?)
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own DIY Valentines Wreath
Wreath supplies needed:
- 1 Heart-shaped “Heart Grapevine” form
- 14 craft sticks
- 1 bunch of small plastic roses
- White acrylic paint (used Apple Barrel – Snow White)
- Brown acrylic paint (used Apple Barrel – Brown Oxide)
- Paint brush
- Hot glue gun and glue stick
DIY Heart Wreath Directions:
- Line up 11 craft sticks horizontally. Glue the remaining 3 sticks vertically, keeping the same width apart. This will keep all of the other sticks together.
- Turn over and paint white.
- While still wet, distress it a bit by dipping into brown paint and going over it. Allow to dry for 5 minutes.
- Wipe off your brush and go back into the brown to darken it up, mostly around the edges.
- Wipe off brush again and go back in with white in the center. Set aside to dry for about an hour.
- Glue the heart to the sticks. Add more glue as needed, and press until the glue has dried, about 30 seconds or so.
- Remove roses from stems by pulling off. Randomly glue roses where they look nice, on the inside and outside rim of the heart.
- Cut off the small tips of the leaf stems, as well as individual larger leaves. Glue them randomly around the roses and the heart.
- Cut a piece of twine to about 6/7” or to the size you would like. Turn over and add a little glue to one top corner and carefully glue one end of the twine. (Use another craft stick to press down so you don’t get burned!) Add more glue over it to secure.
- Once that has hardened, do the same to the other side.
- Once completely dry and hardened, you can hang up and enjoy!
A pretty quick and easy way to bring a little more Valentine’s decor into your home!
