Valentine’s Day Heart WreathJanuary 23, 2015 | FILED UNDER: Valentine's Day
Are you ready for some Valentine’s Day crafts? I’ve been scheming the last couple weeks and ended up buying half of the Valentine’s aisle at Hobby Lobby! Needless to say, I’ve come up with some fun ideas that I can’t wait to share – the first is this Valentine’s Day heart wreath!
This wreath is colorful, playful, and under $15 to make thanks to a variety of inexpensive foam hearts! When you think of Valentine’s Day, you don’t necessarily think of teal, and that’s why I love the unexpected pop of color that the few teal hearts bring to the wreath! I used a similar combination for my pom-pom heart wreath a couple years ago. You can whip up this wreath in under 30 minutes. Here’s how!

Supplies for Heart Wreath
- Foam wreath form (I used a 17″ circle wreath form. If you can find a circle from with a flat surface, it will work even better than my rounded one!)
- Foam hearts in various sizes and colors
- Red ribbon (you can use red crepe paper streamers for an inexpensive alternative)
- Hot glue gun
How to Make Heart Wreath
1. Cover the foam wreath form by securing the ribbon with a dab of hot glue and wrapping it around, slightly overlapping the ribbon as you go. Once you’ve covered the whole thing, secure the other end with another dab of hot glue.
2. Lay out your largest hearts around the the wreath, slightly overlapping them. I alternated colors but you can do whatever you want.
2. Once you have the placement you want, secure each heart in place with a dab of hot glue on the back.
3. Next, layer in the medium sized hearts, tucking them under some hearts, and positioning them on top of others. Add as many as you want until you think it looks good! Once you have the arrangement you want, secure them with hot glue.
4. Finish off your wreath with a few small hearts. I positioned my smallest hearts in the center of the medium hearts. Since I used heart stickers for these, I just peeled off the backing and stuck them on without any glue.
Hang with a pretty ribbon and you’re done!
