It’s always fascinating to get one item to decorate and see what a bunch of individuals come up with – don’t you think? Well, I’m participating in a blog hop for Treetopia . . . and I’m so excited to share with you my 15 minute vintage valentine wreath! Me and a few other bloggers/designers got an AMAZING pink wreath base and were challenged to decorate it any way we like – so I chose to go with vintage valentines, felt/foam hearts, and a lot of hot glue. I will show you how quick it was to make!
One more thing: you know when a project is in your mind and it goes down perfectly on paper? That happened here. I’m just as pleased with it in real life as I was in my head. Don’t you love that?

Now here’s how I did it!
Gather These Supplies
- Treetopia Pretty in Pink wreath
- Vintage valentines – I purchased mine from eBay
- Felt hearts, glitter hearts, puzzle pieces, roses, etc – (from Hobby Lobby)
- Hot glue gun
I figured out what I wanted to do with my wreath by experimenting, and that was layering. After putting a few flowers onto hearts and then standing back a bit, I realized I wanted to layer felt, vintage valentines, and flowers!
I repeated all the way around the wreath until my hot gluing was complete! This was seriously easy and only took about 15 minutes – can you imagine what it would have taken had I been a little bit more decisive?
Here’s my wreath again, and a few closer looks:
