DIY: Valentine’s Day Wreath

valentine-wreath-21

Even though it’s still January, it’s never too early to start decorating for Valentine’s Day. I got inspired by lots of pom poms and heart-shaped foam cut-outs. Keep reading for a Valentine’s Day wreath you can’t help but love!

You will need:

  1. One (1) foam wreath circle. Pro tip: I took a saw and cut my foam wreath in half. This way it will lay flat against the door, and I can use the other half for another project!
  2. Two (2) foam hearts in varying sizes.
  3. Three (3) skeins of yarn. I did pink, lavender, and red, but you can choose whichever colors you like.
  4. Lots of pom poms.
  5. A few push pins.
  6. A hot glue gun.
  7. Hot glue sticks.

Step 1

Pro tip: Before you start this project, take the time to roll the skeins of yarn into a ball. This will help prevent you from finding annoying knots in the middle of your project.

Tie a knot at the end of your yarn, then insert one of the push pins through the knot. Make sure to push the pin through the foam wreath. This is how the first strand will stay in place. After securing the end of the yarn, begin tightly wrapping the yarn all around the wreath. When finished, tie another knot at the end and secure with a pin.

Step 2

After you have wrapped the entire wreath with your base color, use the contrasting colors to add more detail and texture. Make sure to secure both ends with push pins as you did with the base color thread. I went for a criss-crossed pattern, but you do any pattern you choose.

Step 3

Next, start hot gluing the pom poms to the foam hearts. I used larger sized pom poms for the bigger sized heart, and smaller ones for the smaller heart. You can use any colors you like, but I decided to go for a variety.

Once you have covered the entire front of the hearts with pom poms, attach them to the wreath using plenty of hot glue!

Finished Product
