Valentine's Day Wreath Tutorial by Jen & Co

I love decorating for the holidays!  If I can make a wreath, a banner, perhaps use some GLITTER, then I am in!  Any excuse to buy craft supplies, girl.  Sometimes, I actually manage to make the project I envision and sometimes, not so much.

You might have already noticed my obsession with burlap wreaths.  I find them extremely adorable.  I think it is the poofiness as well as the vintage look that I like so much.  Oh, and the fact that they are relatively cheap and easy to make, both qualities I look for in a project 😉

On with the tutorial, you say?  Ok, let’s do it.

Here’s what you need:

  • Burlap (cut in ~4 inch strips, or burlap ribbon)*
  • Burlap Ribbon in a contrasting color or pattern for the bow
  • Wire wreath form
  • Hot Glue/Gun
  • Felt sentiment (cut your own or buy one pre-made at Michael’s)

*I bought a large bolt of burlap at Lowe’s and cut it into 4 inch strips to save money.  How much you need depends on how close together you pack in your loops.  The fuller the wreath, the more burlap you use.  I would plan on at least 3 or 4 yards.

Step 1: Loop the Burlap Through the Wire Wreath

Here is a link to another wreath I made that includes a great tutorial on how to loop burlap through the wire wreath form.

Step 2: Make a Large Bow out of A Contrasting Burlap Ribbon

I made this bow using a wire to hold it together in the center, rather tying a knot.  I find it easier and think it looks better.

Step 3: Hot Glue the Sentiment onto the Wreath

I prefer the stiff felt decorations at Michael’s because they keep their shape better than softer felt, but maybe a fabric stiffening spray would work for softer felt?  Comment below and let me know + show me a picture of your wreath!

Step 4: Hang it Wherever You Like

Don’t you just love it?!  Pink, hearts, xoxo’s, Valentine’s Day, you are the best.  Muah!  If you have a love, give that person a smooch 😉  If not, give yourself a smooch, or at least a hug.  If I could reach out of this computer and hand you a conversation heart, it would say, “You Rock.”  Okay, enough with the mushy Valentine’s notes.  Night, night, Beautiful.
