Valentines Day Wreath
Do you decorate for Valentines Day? Or do you find it too much of a chore? I find myself being a little of both. I find that I drag my feet a bit when I think about decorating for Valentines Day. I don’t know if its because I am worn out from decorating for Christmas and winter, but I just don’t want to spend more time decorating for another holiday.
However, I still find myself getting festive. There are many ways to add a little bit of Valentines décor to your home without spending a lot of time and energy doing so. Today I want to show you how I took a simple wreath, that can be used year round, and added some Valentines swag.
What’s great about this is that it can easily be disassembled once Valentines is over and reused the next year.
You will need:
- Evergreen or Grapevine wreath base
- Ticking stripe fabric or any of your favorites
- Hot glue gun
So, to start, I cut out 3 different sized hearts out of my ticking fabric. I just hand drew these, as they do not need to be perfect.
I double over the fabric so there would be 2 cutouts of each heart. I took one of the hearts and glued a piece of twine right to the middle of the heart.
I then ran hot glue around the edge of one side. I then applied the other heart to the top, pressing the edges together. Continue gluing around the edge but leave a small opening.
I the stuffed the heart with a little bit of pillow stuffing. Now its time to close up the opening with more hot glue. Repeat this for the other hearts
How cute are those little stuffed hearts? Once they are all done, you can use creative license to hang them where you want. I wanted mine to hang together like a swag.
*Hint: Using three of one item is more balancing in home décor. That is why I chose 3 hearts.*
I took the hearts and staggered their lengths and then tied them to the Evergreen wreath. I then hung it in my entryway. I always try to at least add something there, that way it can greet those people visiting my home.
This may seem really simple, because it is!
Decorating for Valentine's Day does not need to take up all your time. Spend that time loving those around you, and take a 30-minute break to make a super cute Valentines wreath that you are sure to love!
This is my favorite kind of Valentines décor. It is simple and understated and works so very well with the rest of my home décor. Why not try one for yourself!
