What better way to wash away the post-Christmas blues than by adorning your front door with a pretty Valentine’s Day wreath? The vibrant splashes of red and pink colors will instantly brighten your winter home decor and uplift your home’s curb appeal.

How to Make a Valentine’s Day Wreath

Materials Needed:

I got all my Valentine wreath materials at Hobby Lobby, which cost just over $20.

Grapevine Wreath Base

Pink Heart Ornament

Pink and White Heart Flower Stems

Faux Greenery Stems

Peony Stems

Pink and Red Polka Dot Ribbon

Pink Heart Ribbon

Floral Wire

Glue Gun

Wire Cutter

DIY Valentine Wreath

Pro Tips: Choose a wreath base that suits your style. I like grapevine wreaths because you can easily tuck in the wreath embellishments, and there is less gluing.

Savings Tips: The cost of individual floral stems can add up quickly. Opt for a floral bunch with a variety of flowers and greenery.

Step-by-Step Tutorial: DIY Valentine Wreath

Start Your Wreath with Ribbon

I thought the heart ornament was a little too rustic with the twine and replaced it with a cute heart ribbon.

Then, I cut a 12-inch length of polka dot ribbon and secured the heart ornament to the top of the wreath base by tying it in a knot.

Arranging Artificial Flowers on Your Valentine Wreath

Trim the greenery, hearts, and flower stems using wire cutters to the desired lengths.

Starting with the heart stems, arrange and tuck them in on the wreath base. Then add the greenery and finally the flowers.

Once satisfied with the arrangement, secure all elements with hot glue. Allow it to dry.

Make a Bow for Your Valentine Wreath

Cut 24 inches of wire ribbon.

Fold a 4-inch length of ribbon to form a loop. Repeat four times.

Pinch the center of your loops and secure with a small piece of floral wire.

Pull out the two loose ends for the tails.

Cut a small piece of ribbon, fold it in half, and then wrap it around the center to cover the floral wire. Secure with hot glue.

Pull out the individual loops to fluff out the bow.

Attach to the wreath with hot glue.
