DIY :: Valentine's Heart Wreath


I just love my new wreath I made last week when I was organizing my living room. It's simple and rustic and serves as a reminder each time I walk through the door. The banners that I used are from last year's Valentine's Vignette that I left up all year on my mirror. I thought the sentiment was sweet and should stay up year round. Since I was busy with my living room I didn't have time to take step-by-step pictures but you get the idea from the finished pictures and descriptions.


I picked up a heart-shaped grapevine wreath from Michaels.


The heart banner was created by cutting out or punching heart shapes from red cardstock. I added a few drops of hot glue to the back of the hearts and adhered to the bakers twine.


I draped the heart banner across the top portion of the wreath and tied to each side. I added a drop of hot glue to secure in place.


I randomly added a few sections of the heart banner to the lower portion of the wreath, cut the twine, and secured with hot glue.


The love banner was found at Whisker Graphics and printed on cardstock. I cut out each letter and a few hearts, punched holes on the top of each piece, and laced bakers twine through the punched holes.


The love banner was draped across the top portion of the wreath just below the heart banner, tied on each side, and secured with a bit of hot glue. Easy peasy!


Thanks for stopping by!
