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

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!
