easy diy Valentine wreath for the craft challenged or crazy busy
Valentine’s Day is different when your kids outgrow the tradition of Valentine cards and parties. I now send my kids one of these for Valentine’s Day. I admit the addition of pink to the decor after the holidays is refreshing and gives a glimpse of the spring season.
Here is a super simple wreath that requires very little time, money and effort.
SIMPLE VALENTINE WREATH
VALENTINE’S DAY DOOR WREATH
- grapevine wreath
- paper hearts
I loved the simplicity of this wreath. I loved to work with grapevine wreaths. However my original version. I think I had too many layers on the wreath when I added a smaller wreath to the center of the grapevine.
was a bit of a disaster. My vision of a petite and dainty wreath were replaced with a bulky and chunky vibe. Not the look I wanted for Valentine’s Day or a month into these simple steps to lose the holiday love handles.
Let’s just say my original wire hanger wreath went sideways from there.
VALENTINE’S DAY WREATH
So I went with a chunkier grapevine wreath with silver accents (I bought it years ago on clearance at Target). I found this one on Amazon.
I found these adorable Valentine cutouts from the Dollar Store and these hearts.
Baker’s twine was the perfect weight to attach the pink and white hearts. From there, it was easy to thread the hearts through the grapevine.
I draped it over the grapevine wreath like a strand of garland- tucking it between the branches.
My plans to hang my Valentine’s Day wreath on the front door were derailed when the wind tossed the paper-thin hearts and the threat of snow would lead to a broken hearts party on the porch.
With snow in the forecast, I relocated the wreath to the Dutch door in the kitchen.
So even though my wreath did not end up where it began I do love it.
But, I think I might have to paint the Dutch door pink. #wink
