I love holidays. Not only are they great for family bonding and spending time together but they give me an excuse to craft. And visit the Dollar Tree. Not sure which one I love more, to be honest! Since starting this blog the monthly Dollar Tree craft has become one of my favorite features to write and this DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath is no exception.
I’ve found that spending time doing something creative a few times a month is the perfect way to relax. Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down and create something beautiful. As a neat side effect, I have also discovered that being creative with crafts helps with my writing. I have long said that creativity is like a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it gets! If you have been feeling creative but you’re not sure where to start then this wreath might be the perfect place to start. It’s simple and requires no special equipment asides from a glue gun and some scissors!

DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath – Directions
Using your glue gun attach the foam heart (or another decorative piece) to your wreath. I found that the wicker wreath frame can be hard to attach things too due to its uneven surface so don’t be afraid to use a lot of glue! If it’s possible you might even consider attaching your decoration with floral wire. Since I was using a foam heart and there was no way to hide the wire I settled for a lot of glue!
Once your decorative centerpiece is attached it’s time to add your florals. My florals came in large bunches which worked fine for my Spring Wreath last year but needed to be separated for this design. This is easy to do with a pair of strong scissors or wire cutters. Use floral wire to attach some of the larger flowers if needed but smaller ones can just be worked into the wicker.
With your flowers in place its time to create the bow. There are numerous tutorials online about how to make ribbon bows but I found it easiest to simply create a center roll and attach it with a bit of hot glue before making a zig-zag with each zig being slightly larger than the last one.
Create a ribbon tail by tying a large piece of ribbon around the center of your bow and cutting the ends. Fluff up the bow and curl the ends if desired. Hang up and Enjoy!
