DIY Valentine's Day Wreath

Celebrate With a Yarn-Wrapped Wreath For Valentine's Day

Adorn your front door with a welcoming and lovely yarn-wrapped Valentine's Day wreath that costs around $8 to make. Plus, this project is wonderfully easy and can be personalized with your favorite colors and small embellishments. All you need is string, scissors, felt, and a styrofoam base, which you can find at your local craft store, and you're on your way to a sweet wreath.

What You'll Need:

  • Red yarn
  • 8-inch foam round
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon
  • String (optional)
  • Scrap paper (optional)
  • Letter stamps (optional)

Directions:

  1. Select a hue of red string to use for creating the wreath. Working with a soft and fuzzy yarn creates a pretty wreath. Tie a long length of string around the foam round, and then begin wrapping the base, keeping the string close together so the foam doesn't show.
  1. When a length of yarn runs out, tie on another length, continuing to work until the entire wreath is covered with string. To create the felt flowers, start by cutting a circle around three inches in diameter from a sheet of felt.
  1. Now make a spiraling cut within the circle to use for rolling up the felt flower.
  1. Starting from the outside edge, begin rolling the felt together, working until the fabric is rolled to the end of the spiral.
  1. Now secure the rolled felt flower with a dot of hot glue on the underside of the flower.
  1. Arrange the felt flowers on the wrapped wreath with the hot glue gun.
  1. Finish the Valentine's Day wreath with a length of ribbon at the top to use for hanging. For an extra touch, you can cut a heart from scrap paper, use letter stamps to write a special message, and attach with a length of string.
  1. Hang the wreath on your front door or on a wall to show your festive spirit.
