These Valentine’s wreaths don’t have to go on the door.
It can do more than hang on the front door. We’re re-thinking the wreath as an essential piece of your home décor – for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Decorator Bethany Sinks gives us permission to use a wreath in new ways.
Use a wreath…
- Draped from pretty ribbon, hung over a piece of art
- Layered with a cutting board against the kitchen backsplash.
- Nestled in a tray display.
- Draped over a mirror or bedpost.
- Hung on your kitchen stove hood or over a kitchen cabinet door.
- Pinned on the inside of your front door.
How to Make the Decorative Valentine’s Wreaths
For both wreaths
Purchase a heart-shaped wired wreath found off Amazon. Very inexpensive.
Wrap the wired wreath with wide wool yarn. One bolt can make several wreaths.
For the rose wreath
Cut stems off roses and hot glue on the wreath for the rose wreath. Fill it up as much as you desire.
For the bunny tail wreath
Tie the pink-colored bunny tail pampas in small bundles with a light jute or cream-colored yarn. Hot glue the bundles on the wreath making sure each full part of the bundles covers up the stems of the previous bundle so you can’t see them.
Then add ribbon for décor or to hang on the wreath.
How to make the Yarn Hearts Bowl Fillers
Use small heart shaped Styrofoam shapes (3-4” across)
Yarn of your choice. Hot glue one end and start to wrap around the heart in a circular motion. Cut the yarn when the styrofoam is completely covered and hot glue the end down. Looks so pretty in a heart shaped bowl.
