Valentine Wreath Tutorial

SHARE

valentine wreath tutorial

Valentine wreath tutorial is partly a re-purposing of a Christmas wreath! Sometimes, especially when making a wreath for yourself, you don’t always have to start from scratch!

We fashioned a leftover Christmas wreath, sans the bows and signs, and turned it into a Valentine Wreath by adding some new ribbons and a metal heart sign.

Supplies

Leftover Christmas Wreath – Blog post for instructions: Season’s Greetings Deco Mesh Wreath 

Wreath Form

24″ Work Wreath (any white style)

or

24″ Pencil Wreath (any white style)

Mesh

XB79710-01 10″ White Fabric Mesh – 1 Roll

Fabric mesh is one of my favorite products for wreath making. It has a Polyester fiber in it which gives the Polypropylene as less “plastic” feel.

Summary

The Valentine Wreath base was made using the ruffle technique. Click here for that video: Season’s Greetings Deco Mesh Wreath

The ribbons for the Valentine Wreath were cut 13″ in length.

The 2.5″ ribbons were dovetailed and the smaller ribbons just cut at an angle. The Ribbon Tail Board just speeds up the process of cutting ribbon strips.

Secure ribbon clusters in the twist. Alternate the ribbon pattern as desired.

An alternative to ribbon strips would be to just make large bows, or loops and tails with the ribbon.

Attach the sign to either side or the center using chenille stems or floral wire. Make a hanger for the back of the wreath using zip ties, floral wire or chenille stems.

Make a hand tied bow or use the E-Z Bowmaker and attach bow to the Valentine wreath.

Finishing Up

Check the back of the Valentine wreath and make sure to sharp wires or anything is protruding that might scratch your door. Fluff your ribbons. All the ribbon was wired which makes fluffing easier.

More Re-purposing

After Valentine is over, hang on to the wreath! Remove the sign and ribbons and think about Easter. No need to let a good white base go to waste!

  1. Do you still carry the gingerbread boy wreath kit? If so could you please let me know how to order and the price?
    Thanks

      Sorry for the late response, I missed your comment. The gingerbread wreath embellishment kit (head, arms, arms) should be available again this fall. But if you are talking about a completed wreath that we did as a tutorial, no we won’t have any more of those complete kits. We might do something new later on and have a new one.
