Simple Valentine’s Day Wreath Craft
Create this simple wreath craft for Valentine's Day and dress up your home with spicy scent through the dreary winter months.
A few weeks ago, when all the Christmas decorations were put away and the last of the glitter finally swept from the floor (I hope), I decided I wanted a few seasonal decorations to dress up the house just a little. It seemed too early for Valentine’s Day, but I wanted something along those lines to decorate my front door. Artificial silk flowers aren’t really my thing, but I took a spin through the floral section of my local craft store anyway. There, I discovered some fun flowers made of wood, of all things, and decided to design a simple wreath craft that I could use to showcase them.
Simple Valentine’s Day Wreath Craft Materials
- Heart-shaped grapevine wreath
- Dried eucalyptus bunch, burgandy
- Pink wooden flowers, 2 stems with 3 flowers each (I found these at Jo-Ann Fabric)
- Brown wire (Regular green floral wire won’t blend properly for this wreath craft – find brown or copper wire in the jewelry section instead)
- 24 inches of ivory ribbon
- Wire snips
Simple Valentine’s Day Wreath Craft Assembly
- Snip short lengths of eucalyptus stems and arrange around wreath as desired. Tuck stems into grapevine where possible, and use brown wire to secure as needed.
- Trim each of the six flowers, leaving about 2 inches of stem attached to each flower. Arrange flowers as desired, tucking stems into grapevine and securing with brown wire as needed.
- Hang wreath from ribbon loop as shown.
I have this wreath hanging on the back of my front door, and I love that every time I enter the house, I get whiff of the spicy eucalyptus welcoming me home. This wreath craft is seasonal without being too cutesy – perfect for my style!
