DIY Valentine's Day Wreath

When I was pregnant with Abby, I was in a very crafty mood towards the end. One of my favorite projects I completed was a heart argyle wreath for Valentine's Day that I found on Pinterest. I absolutely love how it turned out, and even after three years, it still looks pretty good! :)

I used a pool noodle for my wreath form - if they aren't available (I stock up after summer for craft projects :), a foam one from a craft store works great!  If you're using a pool noodle, use duct tape to keep the ends together ... clear tape hasn't held up as good in my experience.


For this project you will need:

Wreath form
Hot glue gun
Yarn (I used gray)
Two colors of felt (I used hot pink and light pink)
Scissors



1.  Take wreath form, and hot glue end of yarn on form. Start wrapping your yarn around it. This takes a long time, so relax and watch a movie while doing it :)

2.  Secure end of yarn on form with hot glue.

3.  Trace heart template onto felt. I don't have a template since all forms are different sizes - just use whatever size heart will fit best :)  Cut out hearts.

4.  Hot glue the hearts onto wreath, alternating colors as you go.

5. Take yarn and start criss-crossing in front of hearts. This is time consuming too if you are a perfectionist like me :)  Hot glue on back of wreath to keep in place.

Up close...love this wreath! :)


And that's it! Now hang it on your door and enjoy! :)

I love this one, and I'm thinking this year I'm going to make a similar one for St. Patrick's Day, but with shamrocks...then I can use for Notre Dame football season too, right?! ;)

  7. Pinning this for a craft with my daughter. I think we might use a ribbon to wrap around the wreath (to save time, 8 year olds don't have a lot of patience:)

  13. The pool noodle is great - can hang with a Command hook since it isn't very heavy!
