Materials

  • Spool of Red Wire

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 5

Take your wooden hearts and glue them to your wreath.

Tip:

  • Start with your “c” heart and place it in the top center of your wreath.  Next glue the remaining letters in place accordingly.

Step 9

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.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
  • This is so cute! I don’t usually decorate for Valentine’s Day but this looks so easy to make.

    All the Best,

  • This turned out so great! The little lantern in the middle of it is just so perfect! It definitely adds a warm touch to the wreath!

  • Very clever use of dollar store materials. I totally forgot Dollar Tree had floral wire…so many things can be made with that.

  • This is so pretty, I love the bright red you used for this.

    • Thanks, Emily! It was a ton of fun to make, too. 🙂

  • Shirley Wood

    This would be cute on an office door too! So easy. I need to go look for that Welcome sign at my dollar store.

    • Thanks Shirley! You definitely should (I found it by all of the other hanging Valentine’s decor). 🙂

  • Mandi

    I love it! I need to go check out the dollar store for some inspiration!

    • It can be a blast brainstorming ideas while walking through the dollar store! Hope you get some great inspiration!
