DIY Valentine's Wreath


I love holidays. 
Really I love any reason to celebrate something. 
So naturally, I love to decorate. 
Seeing as we live in just a little over 500 sq ft of space, I don't have a lot of space to decorate. 
(I cannot wait until we move in three weeks!!!)
I think it is really fun to have a new wreath on the door for every season/holiday. 
I always keep my wreath inside because then I get to see it more often
and I really don't have that many people come to our door anyways. 

This wreath is super simple. 
All you need is:
1 round styrofoam wreath
1/3 yard burlap
2 felt squares
1 yard of twine
Super glue/ glue gun

First cut about 4 inches of the burlap.
Put a light layer of super glue or glue from a glue gun around half of the wreath. 
Then wrap the burlap around and around and around :)
Do this until you reach the beginning and just glue down the excess on the back side o the wreath. 

Take your felt square and cut our a curly cue circle. 
You can make this as big or little as you would like. 

Hold the middle of the circle and start wrapping the felt around it. 
This is much easier than you think .
Put a little bit of glue on the end to hold it together. 
Add glue to the bottom of the rose and place it wherever you'd like on your wreath. 

For the burlap banner, cut out four triangles with your burlap. 
If you have a glue gun, glue each triangle to the twine. 
Otherwise, you will probably want to stitch them. 
Write whatever word you would like with permanent marker. 
Tie the banner to both sides of the wreath. 

Happy LOVE month!
enjoy.

  1. While I don't have any sort of Valentine's Day decoration (except for chocolate kisses wrappings left all over my desk signifying a seriously huge intake of the Hershey product) I just wanted to say that I love that you put your wreath on the inside of the door. The reasoning behind it is perfect. Enjoy the wreath because it's darn cute.
