A cute and simple DIY Valentine’s Day wreath made with a round wreath form, ribbon, small wooden hearts, and a few dabs of hot glue!
I never used to decorate for holidays like Valentine’s Day. It seemed pointless and I really didn’t care about those minor holidays. But this year I was inspired and decided to make a wreath for Valentine’s Day.
This simple ribbon wreath only took an hour to create. Plus, the supplies were very inexpensive. Gather these supplies to make your own:
- Round Wreath Form
- 20 feet of solid colored ribbon
- 9 feet of patterned ribbon
- 5 unfinished wooden hearts
- White craft paint
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Small ribbon for hanging
DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath Directions
I really love the wreaths that Gabbi at Retro Ranch Reno makes by wrapping ribbon around a round wreath form. She also embellishes them with something fun. Originally, I planned to wrap my form with the red polka dot ribbon, but 9 feet of ribbon wasn’t enough. So I switched to the 20 feet of pink ribbon. To start, I dabbed some hot glue on the wreath form, attached the ribbon, and started wrapping. I added more hot glue along the way, just to keep the ribbon in place and tight against the form. Initially, I planned to make a bow for the top of the wreath, but I didn’t buy wired ribbon. Non-wired ribbon doesn’t hold its shape like wired ribbon. This resulted in floppy bows that don’t look cute. Instead, I wrapped the red polka dot ribbon in a larger pattern over the pink ribbon. Additionally, I used a little bead of hot glue for each of the red ribbon’s wraps to keep it in place. I used more hot glue for the red ribbon because I worried the larger wraps wouldn’t hold over time.
Making the Heart Banner
For the heart banner through the center of the wreath, I used wooden hearts. I bought the wooden hearts at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts. I painted them white so they would really pop against the pink and red ribbon. Once the paint dried, I hot glued the hearts together in an overlapping pattern. After the glue dried, I hot glued the row of hearts to the front of the wreath. Easy peasy!
I hung the wreath using a thin red ribbon that I tied in a big loose bow. I love the look of the thin floppy bow at the top of this wreath. And now it hangs perfectly on a hook on the front door. I really love the way this DIY Valentine’s Day wreath turned out! It adds a little pop of festiveness to the door. Plus, decorating for a holiday always makes me more excited for the holiday itself.
This simple Valentine’s Day ribbon wreath adds a festive touch to any front door! The supplies don’t cost a lot of money and are available at any craft store! Get in the holiday spirit with a little crafting!
