Sweetheart Valentine’s Day Wreath

I have such a fun little Valentine’s Wreath for you today!

I don’t always feel like using the traditional colors for holidays – but I guess I was in a romantic mood because this wreath is all pink and white and lace sweetness –
and decorated with a little embroidered “SweetHeart” pennant!

Sweetheart Valentines Wreath

This isn’t a huge wreath which I love – it’s made with a 10″ Styrofoam wreath form. So it can be hung on the door – or over a mirror – or even on a gallery wall display!

I love how the combination of the jute with the “pearls” (pearl stick pins) looks too – it’s such a fun contrast.

Valentines Wreath

This is really fast to do too – I think the whole thing took me about 3 hours – with distractions of course. (Is it possible to craft without distractions . . . ever? Not here it’s not.)
Plus – I had all the supplies on hand so it was free. Free is always more awesome. :)

Pink Bunting Wreath

Ready for a tutorial? Here we go!

You’ll need:

  • 1 Styrofoam Wreath Form – mine was 8″
  • Jute – enough to wrap wreath. I used about half of a large roll
  • Pink and White felt
  • Embroidery floss
  • Baby rick rack
  • Lace
  • Pearl Stick pins
  • Hot glue/gun

Start by wrapping your wreath form with jute. This is pretty self-explanatory. Glue one end down, then just wrap.
I found it was easier to not pull out too much jute – and to just wrap the package around and let the jute come out a little at a time.

Covering a Styrofoam Wreath

Keep wrapping. Keep wrapping.

Jute Covered Wreath

Easy peasy.

Next up – make up a few felt flowers. I made two regular felt rosettes and then layered three felt rosettes with 3 folded ruffle flowers. You can find instructions for all those on the How To Do That flowers page.
I made one of the layered flowers bigger than the others so that it could be a sort of centerpiece.

Felt Rosettes

Arrange the flowers along the lower left side of the wreath form. Insert pearl stick pins through the centers, then into the wreath to hold them on. You might have a little trouble getting them through the glue but I have all confidence that you can do it.

Felt Flowers and Pearls

Cut out six little pennants out of felt. With a disappearing marker, write out the letters and a heart.
WESET heart. Mr. FT calls me that all the time.

Felt Pennant

Embroider the letters and heart with a backstitch. You can find the instructions for that on the Embroidery page.

Sweet Embroidery

Glue a little bit of baby rick rack to the back of the pennants. Cause we need more cuteness. And rick rack is always appropriate.

Embroidered Heart

Glue the little pennant pieces to thin lace and tie bows in each end.

Embroidered Bunting

Add the pennant bunting to the top side of the wreath, a little to the right side. Pin it to the wreath with the pearl stick pins.

Lace and Pearls Wreath

Add some pink and white pearl pins around the wreath for a little fun.

Jute and Pearls

And that’s it! So fun and easy right?

    Hi Bev,

    Bev- What a darling wreath. I love the soft pink with lace and pearls combined with the roughness of the jute. Really cute.
