So…I made a Valentines Day Wreath. And you should too. Here’s why:
1. It’s Pink.
2. It will make you feel Valentiney.
3. It will make your mailman or mailwoman smile and wonder why you have a tutu hanging on your door.
4. It’s a daily reminder to your husband that you are a Valentines Day Person, you will be celebrating Valentines Day, and he is expected to celebrate (aka buy you gifts) as well.
I got my original inspiration and tutorial from the Our Best Bites Halloween wreath (click HERE to view the post and their really great tutorial). The only changes I made was the color of tulle and accents I used. I used 3 shades of pink–one light,one medium, and one sparkly fuschia. I did two knots each of the light and dark pink, followed by one knot of the glittery tulle, so the sparkle wouldn’t take over.
You can get rolls of tulle at your craft store. For a wreath this size, you will need 4 or 5 rolls.
I definitely advise using a SMALL Styrofoam wreath form…8 inches or so is plenty big because these wreaths DEFINITELY grow.
Remember those Conversation Hearts I covered in acrylic spray for my Valentines Day Centerpieces? I had some left over and I hot glued a few onto the wreath as an accent.
I found this flower pin at the craft store with all the ribbon and headband making supplies. You could hot glue any kind of flower though, or make your own from paper.
Isn’t that so cute and easy? It’s a bit time consuming (it took me over an hour to tie all the tulle…I just turned on a good movie while I sat and tied), but totally worth it. And if you’ve got a little girl, you can hang it in their room after Valentines Day.
Or if you don’t (like me) you can hang it in your living room. Your husband will loooove that.
