DIY Valentine's Day Wreath

There must be a wreath obsession disease that I didn't know existed. Decorating my house, especially the front door was reserved for Christmas only just a couple of years ago. Now I must have a wreath for every major holiday and a wreath for in between holidays. Are you the same way?


I guess there could be worse addictions, and this Valentine's Day wreath that I'm sharing today is about love. It sounds like I am justifying myself again. Ha! Either way, this wreath is super easy and you probably have all the supplies in your home. 

Supplies: 
Cardboard, box cutter, staple gun, tape, pipe cleaner, and red or pink garland. 

This shipping box was about 13in x 13 in. I printed out a heart to trace onto the box since my hearts don't come out so even. I then followed the outline of the inside heart to make the outside heart. It doesn't have to be exact. I would bring the top point down more than in the picture. It will make a more dramatic heart shape.

Use the box cutter to cut out the inside heart and the outside edge of the heart. It should look like a heart shaped donut after you are finished.

Tape or use a staple gun to hold the garland in place on the back side of the cardboard. 

Wrap the cardboard with the garland until the entire cardboard cut out is covered. I used a staple gun (small one) to hold the garland in place after it was wrapped all the way around. 

At the top of the heart where it dips down to a point, wrap a red or pink pipe cleaner and twist to secure around the garland. The pipe cleaner was well hidden in the garland. I made a little loop with the pipe cleaner to put on my door hanger.

Viola! An easy, DIY, didn't cost me a dime Valentine's Day Wreath.

Happy Crafting,

Amanda
