DIY Valentine Wreath

I was so happy to finally take down my Christmas/winter wreath.  Something about changing that out makes me feel a little closer to spring (even though I know we have a long way to go)!  I found a heart wreath form in my stash that I had picked up at Goodwill a few years back (1.99 tag still attached).  I was looking around at Hobby Lobby and decided I would wrap the wreath in ruffle trim.  In bright pink.

I underestimated how much trim it would actually take to wrap this thing.  I bought just shy of 6 yards and it wasn’t enough, so I had to improvise.

I decided to cut small strips and pin them to the back to try to utilize every little piece of trim.  If you try this, just get enough trim to wrap the whole thing!  I was being lazy and didn’t want to go back to the store!

I then wrapped some white satin trim at the top for a little contrast and tied it up with some pink/white striped ribbon I already had on hand.  The trim is 2.49/yard, but I used a 40% off coupon.  This wreath cost be about $10 to make.

I think it looks fun and festive against our painted blue door!  Can you believe it is almost February?!

  1. Very cute! I always seem to underestimate how much of something I need for a project, too, and it's SO frustrating! I had to run out to Lowe's the other day to get more rope for a box I was wrapping in it.
