After Christmas, Valentines is the holiday that inspires the most creativity and craftiness. We all want to surprise our loved ones with some beautiful handmade gifts of love, whether that be home-baked chocolates or a bouquet of paper flowers. To get your home in the spirit of giving and love, try out one of these beautiful Valentines wreaths to hang on your front door.
If you have some time on your hands, you can easily create this textural masterpiece. Amy from The Idea Room used a yard of soft red felt from the craft store and spent a night watching chick flicks and made this beautiful wreath. Each individual piece is made from a 3-inch circle of felt that Amy folded and pinned to the front of the wreath. Simply add a ribbon and enjoy!
Jen from Tater Tots and Jello has a serious love for both chevrons and wreaths and decided to combine the two in this adorable valentines piece. She started out with a cheap dollar store wreath, and wrapped her adorable chevron fabric around it to create a unique striped effect. She grabbed a package of sparkly foam hearts and after a little bit of sewing magic she attached them to her wreath for just the right amount of pizzaz.
If you are a pinecone hoarder, or simply have a tree in your yard that likes to drop hundreds of them on you- don’t toss them! You can make a beautiful and perfectly rustic Valentines wreath with them. Emily from Frugal Musings grabbed a large heart-shaped wire wreath backing, and after painting her pinecones with a few coats of paint and a lot of glitter, she had a beautiful and textural piece like no other.
Nobody ever said that Valentines had to be only red and pink- check out this adorable Eucalyptus wreath from Laurel at A Bubbly Life! She has a backyard full of the trees and she loves the unique greenery they provide. With a wire heart-shaped wreath and a few pretty pink roses, she had a beautiful and modern looking wreath. Perfect for a Valentines dinner party!
For this wreath, you can cut the form out of a piece of cardboard you have lying around if you don’t want to buy your own! Cassie from Little Red Window covered her cardboard in some pink yarn, but she recommends spray painting the cardboard if you are in a time crunch. She used felt to make her flowers, cutting out a few different shapes to give her wreath a lot of beautiful texture.
This wreath has so much beautiful texture with the crinkled cupcake wrappers and the pretty polkadots. See it over at Crafts by Courtney.
