With Valentine’s Day around the corner, this DIY Valentine wreath is super easy to do and will fill your front door with lots of love.
Here’s how I created this beautiful inexpensive wreath using just a few supplies, faux flowers, and greenery I already had.
What you’ll need
1. Floral Foam
5. Faux Florals
6. Wire Cutter
Create your heart template
Draw a heart on a piece of cardboard and draw a smaller heart within your big heart (about 2 inches apart). Cut the outside of both hearts using scissors.
This will be the template for your wreath.
Shape your floral foam
Place your floral foam on your template. Trim your foam using a sharp knife and cover your entire template.
Once you’re heart shape is to your liking, glue your foam pieces onto your template. Place a generous about of glue and allow it to dry.
I used wood glue but you can use glue for foam or a glue stick.
Stay away from using a glue gun as it will melt your foam and not stick properly.
Using a string (I used some twine) and secure each piece of foam to your cardboard template.
I trimmed my foam pieces first before gluing them down and tying them to the cardboard, but you can glue it first, allow it to dry, then trim it.
Apply your floral stems
I used faux florals I already had. Great places to purchase florals are Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Home Goods and Marshalls.
Before you go out and buy floral stems, look around your home first! Do you have a wreath that you no longer want to use? Take it apart and repurpose some of it, or maybe random greenery stems? Use it for a wreath!
I took apart these pink floral decor bouquets that I purchased a few years ago and was no longer using.
When inserting your stems into your foam, place your stems in an upward position on one side of the heart. On the other side of your heart, place your stems in a downward position. Pack and place your stems tightly together into your foam.
Hang your wreath
To hang the wreath you can use any ribbon of you’d like. I used pop tabs and glued them to the back of the wreath with a hot glue gun. Slightly bent the top part of the tab and applied a generous amount of glue to the bottom portion.
I added command hooks to my door and put the top of the tabs through the hooks. It’s holding up nicely.
And that’s it! I think this DIY Valentine wreath turned out amazing! It has become my new favorite DIY since my DIY Christmas Trees.
What do you think? Give this DIY a try! Its perfect for Spring too!
