Use vintage valentines, a few supplies, and a pink form to make this unique valentine wreath in 15 minutes. Easy enough for kids and adults!
Skills Required: None. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you can easily make this. You’ll just use a hot glue gun.
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?
DIY Valentine Wreath
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
There’s nothing like pulling a 36″ wreath out of a box! Especially when it’s pink. I love pink wreaths.
I knew that I wanted to have a vintage feel to my valentine wreath, so I ordered several vintage valentines on eBay. They were inexpensive.
I started with some large felt hearts . . .
. . . and then I had the glittered ones as well.
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 also had some cute puzzle pieces to add to my valentine wreath too. I layered and worked my way around the wreath. Then I stood back and switched out some hearts and colors to float my boat.
Once I had everything in the right place, I secured all of my hearts, valentines, flowers, and other embellishments down with my hot glue gun.
Then to adhere them to the wreath, I bent a branch a little bit and hot glued right to it.
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 valentine wreath again, and a few closer looks:
