Love is in the air! Check out this fun Valentine’s Day-inspired diy by ambassador Kimi Coopet of Oh Hello! Photo.
She says, “My daughter loves to change the decor in her room to match whatever holiday is coming next. So with Valentines Day right around the corner I had to pull out the craft materials and I decided to make her a new wreath.”
* Foam ring
* Fancy trim/ribbon
* Fabric hearts
* Cardboard Hearts in a variety of sizes
* Pipe cleaner
* Valentine theme paper
* Glue gun
The first step is covering your foam ring. I bought mine at Michael’s. I recommend getting white but my store was out so I grabbed a green one. Using hot glue, put a little on the back and start wrapping the yarn around ring. I found that putting a small line of hot glue on the back and working in small sections worked best for me. It took probably 45 minutes to complete this part. The bigger your yarn, the less time it will take.
Next wrap your cardboard hearts in ribbon. I cut several sizes. In the end I used 1 extra large magenta heart, 1 large cream heart, 1 medium magenta heart, 1 medium cream heart, 1 small magenta heart, 1 small cream heart and 1 small pink heart.
Once those were finished I made a small arrow out of a pipe cleaner and light pink valentine themed paper. I hot glued that to the back of the extra large magenta heart. Finally I started to assemble the wreath. I attached each heart to the wreath with hot glue. After they were all on I put smaller fabric hearts on a few of the yarn hearts. I bought those hearts at the dollar spot at Target. The last thing I did was glue 3 strands of fancy trim across the back of the wreath. I also got that trim at the dollar spot at Target.
I hope you love this tutorial, and if you make this wreath be sure and tag us on Instagram, We’d love to see your finished product!
