It’s been a busy week around here. As I mentioned earlier, I am getting ready for a Valentine’s Day Home Tour coming up. It’s been a flurry here of pink and red glitter, feathers, and hearts.
The last wreath I had on my door was my DIY Ornament Wreath. Since the dreaded day came where Topher forced me to take my Christmas decor down (because it was actually January and the neighbors were giving me the “come on already and take down your Christmas crap” look), I knew it was time to find something for my ever-so-naked front door.
So today, I’m showing how I made my Valentine’s Day Flower Wreath.
Here is what you will need:
- A styrofoam wreath form (I got mine at Michael’s using a 50% off coupon I found online)
- A roll of wire ribbon (I used one that I had from my felt wreath)
- Some artificial flowers (I found mine at Dollar Tree )
- Some fabric (I had some left over from my Instagram Frame), and
- A glue gun
The first thing I did was got glue strips of fabric on my wreath until the entire thing was covered.
Next I cut down the stems on my artificial flowers. I then glued them, overlapping, all the way around the wreath, leaving a gap at the top where my ribbon would be.
Next I looped my ribbon around the top of the wreath and tied a knot.
I then made a bow using the bow maker that I got at Michael’s (I think it was $9.99 and I used a 50% off coupon on it). I bought the bow maker at the beginning of December, not being very optimistic about it working. After you get the hang of it (aka read the directions), I found it to work really well.
I then attached my bow to the knot on the ribbon, looped around the wreath with a pipe cleaner, and that was it!
Super easy wreath that cost me around $10 to make! OK, $15 if you include the bow maker…
