Do you decorate your house for various holidays?
Here are the materials and instructions that I used to create this Valentine's Day wreath.
- Approximately 3 feet of wired ribbon
- Styrofoam disk
- Valentine hearts of different sizes - I used one large (6") heart and a "bouquet" of small hearts
- Other red sparkly decorations
- Woody or mossy fill
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
Step 2: Attach the ribbon to the Styrofoam disk by digging the pipe cleaner ends into the Styrofoam. Then hot glue it into place. If you think of the Styrofoam as being divided into quadrants, I placed this ribbon in the center of the bottom right quadrant.
Step 3: Attach the largest heart to the center of the top left quadrant. I dug out a small hole and filled it with hot glue. I held the heart in place for about a minute to let the glue harden.
Step 4: Cut two sections of the grapevine. I used 1 circumference of the grapevine for each section. I placed one end of a section of grapevine in the top right quadrant of the Styrofoam. The other end stays loose to provide some dimension. I placed one end of the second section in the lower left quadrant of the Styrofoam.
Step 5: Begin to fill in the smaller hearts and other red filler. I cut the smaller hearts and filler apart and added in to create dimension
Step 6: Glue the woody or mossy fill to hide the Styrofoam and other glue "blobs". Hang on your wall or door. I used a 3M Command Strip on the front door and actually hot glued the Styrofoam to the command strip to add stability. This wreath is light weight, so it probably needs the stability in the wind.
