DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath

Oh Valentine’s Day.  V-Day.  Hallmark holiday.  Whatever you want to call it.  It’s not a holiday I normally acknowledge much.  I mean, I’d rather show love every other day than just one day a year.  And I’ve never been a fan of the colors pink and red.  But this year I felt like brightening up our front door from the snowflake wreath (that clearly has not brought us enough snow to snowshoe).  So I made the easiest, least expensive red and pink Valentine’s Day wreath and ironically, I love it. ❤️

A few week’s ago I was browsing through Michael’s looking for something for our door.  Sure, they have some pre-made wreaths but in normal fashion, I needed to make my own.  I picked up this felt laser cutout heart for less than $2.  I then went to my local dollar store and grabbed a roll of tulle and some cute little glitter hearts to add on top.  The binder ring I already had and knew it would be perfect to fan the tulle behind the heart.

I first cut the tulle into 18 inch strips, using the entire roll of tulle.  Then I folded the strips and looped them through the binder ring the same way you would to make a tulle tutu.  After that, I fanned the tulle out evenly and used some of my favorite glue to stick the heart on top.  I then continued using the glue to add the small glitter hearts around the perimeter.  (We will just infer the fact that I forgot to photograph the glueing portion of this craft. 😬)

Fold the tulle in half and loop through the binder to form a knot around it.

Once the glue dried overnight, I stole some fishing line from my husband (I really need to get my own stash for crafts).  Using the fishing line, I looped it through the binder loop and hung it on our door.  Cheap, easy, and festive!

This same idea could be used for upcoming holidays too.  When I was at the dollar store I noticed they had pink laser cutout hearts as well as four leaf clovers and Easter eggs.  Just think, in less than an hour and for less than $10, one could have door decor for 3 holidays!  I may just need to make them all myself. 😉
