Hello, my sweet friends – today is the day!  Today is the day that I’m starting a brand new series called “The Best Of Worthing Court”.  Once each week, I’ll be sharing something out of Worthing Court’s archives.  I hope that my new(er) readers will enjoy some of my projects and inspiration that they may not have seen before.  And for my longtime friends, I hope you’ll enjoy it all over again!

Valentine’s Day Wreath

The “season of love” is right around the corner – Valentine’s Day, that is.  I don’t do a huge amount of decorating in my home for the famous holiday of love, but I do like to add a few simple festive touches here and there.  For that very reason, I’m always trying to come up with ways to give a nod to the holiday without spending a lot of money or doing anything that is too time consuming.

This DIY wreath will be a great addition to my small stash of Valentine’s Day decorations.  Plus, it isn’t huge, so I’ll be able to tuck it in just about any place that I add Valentine’s touches to.

A quick trip to the Dollar store provided everything that I needed.  I have a total of $9 invested in my supplies, but I actually wound up only using $7 worth.  Everything that you see here came from the dollar store, except for the straws, which came from the dollar spot at Target.

Supplies from a dollar store for making a Valentine's Day wreathPin

The first step is to wrap the wreath form with burlap ribbon.  The above photo shows three rolls of ribbon, but I only used two.  I started the ribbon by running a small bead of hot glue on the back of the wreath to hold the end of the ribbon in place.

Wrap, wrap, wrap, until a couple of minutes later you wind up with this.  I ran another bead of hot glue on the back to secure the end of the ribbon again. (You can ignore those stickers in the lower right corner – I wound up not using them. They’re not included in the dollar amount.)

The next step is to prep the artificial flowers for attaching to the wreath.  Using wire snips, I snipped the stem from the back of each flower.

Be careful not to snip too closely though, or your flower will fall apart.  This is what you want to wind up with.

Once all of the stems have been snipped from the flowers, just hot glue them to your wreath in an arrangement that’s pleasing to you.  I glued the larger flowers first and then filled in with the smaller pink ones.

Now to make the oh-so-simple arrow.  The felt pink and red hearts are stickers, so all I did was to place one on the straw in the position that I wanted it and then stick the matching heart to the back of it, with the straw between the two layers.

Position the heart where you want it to be and attach it with a couple of spots of hot glue.  You’re done!

This Valentine’s Day wreath looks super cute hanging with just a piece of jute twine!

How about you, do you do any decorating at all for Valentine’s Day?  Do you go all out or just sprinkle a little love here and there around your home?

Pin it for later!
