With Valentine's Day approaching quickly, I wanted to do a few cutesy lovey dovey projects to share with you guys. I've made a few wreaths over the past couple years to switch out when the seasons change, but I had never made one for Valentine's Day. So, where better to start than with a cute little heart wreath? I love how this turned out and it's super easy and cheap!
What You'll Need:
- Some sort of fake flowers. The one I got is just a long strand with flowers on it and I purchased it at Michael's! I went with this because it was a lot cheaper than buying a bouquet or individual flowers, it was 40% off, and it made it easy to just wrap around the wreath. It was around $8 after the discount.
- A heart shaped wreath. This is the one I bought!
- A hot glue gun & glue sticks. I already had this, so I didn't count it towards my project cost. But if you don't have one, this is a pretty cheap one!
- Some ribbon to hang the wreath.
How To Put it Together:
This part is pretty simple. Just wrap the garland around the wreath so that the flowers are all around the heart. This is what mine looked like with the flowers simply wrapped and not attached in any way. It looks pretty messy and you can hardly even tell that the wreath is heart-shaped. That's absolutely fine at this stage.
Now, take your heated hot glue gun and arrange your flowers however you want & glue down! I pulled the majority of the flowers to the front to give it a fuller, more symmetrical look. I also did a little bit of trimming on the flowers on the inside, since mine were touching and it looked a little bit messier than I wanted it to look. It looks like a heart now. Phew.
For your final step, cut a piece of ribbon to your desired length. Hot glue the ends to the two sides of the back of the wreath, let cool, and show it off on your front door!
Aaaaaand here's my finished project! I was a little unsure about how long it was gonna be, but I'm super happy with how it turned out! So cute. This probably cost me about $20. Let me know what you think about this easy little project & let me see pictures if you decide to make one. Happy Hump Day!
