Thank you for joining me for the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! I’ve joined with 13 other talented bloggers to share Valentine’s Day crafts on a budget. Each blogger was given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged to create a Valentine’s Day craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of their local stores. If you have budget Valentine’s Day crafts to share, please add it to the link-up at the bottom of this post so it can be seen on all of our blogs!
Decorating for the holidays is a blast but you can easily break the bank trying to do so. This beautiful dollar store Valentine wreath is easy to put together and only cost $4 to make! Even if you have to buy the battery-operated candles, you can get a two pack for a dollar bringing your total cost to five dollars. Either way, you have a beautiful new piece of Valentine décor for cheap!
- Spool of Red Wire
- Valentine’s Ribbon of Your Choice (wide)
- Metal Lantern
- Hanging Wooden Heart Welcome Sign
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Baker’s Twine (or similar) roughly the diameter of your wreath in length
Remove wooden hearts from the ribbon. A staple remover will make this easier however I didn’t have one and was still able to do it by hand. Do yourself a favor, though, and use a staple remover because otherwise it takes some serious time and muscle.
Do not cut the ribbon. You will use it later in the project.
Unwind the entire spool of wire and form a circle the size you want your wreath to be. If there is extra wire, wind it around the existing circle to strengthen it.
Use all of the wire.
Attach your ribbon as pictured using your hot glue gun to secure it to the wire wreath. Be sure to twist it to create visual interest as well as volume to your wreath.
There will be some extra ribbon after you finish covering the wreath. Use is to create a bow on the side of your wreath.
Take your wooden hearts and glue them to your wreath.
- Start with your “c” heart and place it in the top center of your wreath. Next glue the remaining letters in place accordingly.
Use the ribbon from your “Welcome Sign” and thread it through the top of your wreath to serve as a hanger.
Tie one end of your baker’s twine to one side of your lantern. Next thread the twine through the same part of your wreath as the ribbon.
Take the loose end of your twine and tie it to the opposite side of your lantern. Use hot glue to “seal” the knots on the lantern.
Hang your wreath up and determine where the twine needs to be for your lantern to hang evenly in the middle of your wreath. Pinch the twine in place with your fingers before taking it down. Next, place a dot of hot glue to hold the twine in that place on the wreath.
Place a battery-operated tea light in the lantern, hang on your door, and enjoy!
It is seriously that easy to create beautiful Valentine’s Day décor for minimal expenditure.
