Make a Valentine Wreath

Published on

It’s that time of year to celebrate love! We decided to join in the celebrations and make a cute wreath! Not only does it work for Valentine’s day, but it can be used through all of spring time!

The supplies needed are: 

  • A wreath form
  • Two types of pink ribbon
  • Gorilla Glue hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks
  • Wire cutters
  • A wreath hook
  • Bunches of florals. (we found bunches of tulips on sale for two dollars, but you can get any kind you like!)

Step 1

 

The first step was to glue down the ribbon. I started at the bottom point of the wreath because that just made the most sense to me. I glued the bottom and began wrapping the ribbon around the wreath form. Make sure not to wrap too tight! You need room to hold the flower stems. 

Step 2

Because I cut the stems and left some length, I felt that I didn’t need to use hot glue to attach the flowers. I simply tucked them into the ribbon and they stay really well! If you want added security or live in a windy area, you might want to use hot glue to attach the flowers. 

Step 3

Once I started adding the flowers, I made sure to leave a little bit of greenery just to give it some dimension and color. The ribbon should not show beneath the flowers so I made sure to really load up on tulips! I put generally two to three flowers per “layer” of ribbon. This made sure that the wreath was filled out and there were no gaps. Don’t neglect the sides!

Step 4

Once I got to the center, I decided to just continue laying the flowers the same direction. I felt it would look the most organized this way. I loosely wrapped the rest of the ribbon around the wreath form. I had absolutely no plan or pattern for the colors I chose and where to put them. I just simply started filling in. Then, when the entire wreath was filled, I used the hot glue gun to glue down the end of the ribbon. I then made a ribbon loop and hot glued it to the top of the wreath. I made sure to really use a ton of glue to attach the loop because I did not want this to fall off. 

 

Once the glue was dry I had a cute little heart-shaped wreath for the season!
