Valentine Heart Wreath
This lovely DIY Valentine wreath makes for an ideal gift, or just something beautiful to hang on the wall. The vibrant colors of this craft can complement any gift to your sweetheart. It may be crafted with pink or red shades.
You will need:
- Wire wreath frame (In the shape of a heart)
- Fuzzy craft sticks
- Optional: Flowers or shiny heart decoration
Pick what color of fuzzy sticks you will use for your Valentine wreath. Red or pink looks lovely for this craft. I used a pattern of multicolored shades of pink and red, but you may use one solid color for the wreath or two or three colors. The pattern of different shades gives a nice effect to this wreath.
Begin by winding a fuzzy stick through the top of the wreath. In this craft, you will be winding and weaving each fuzzy stick through the frame. The wrapping of the fuzzy sticks can be time-consuming. The fuzzy sticks should be wrapped around until the entire wreath is filled. Twine each fuzzy stick back and forth around and through the small wire bars. If they slide apart, push them close together.
The top and bottom crease of the heart frame will be tricky to wrap fuzzy sticks through. If you wish, you may cover the bottom and top first before the rest of the wreath is filled to make it easier.
Wrap each fuzzy stick! You may change shades of color at sections of the wreath. If they slide, just scoot them together. Wrap them snugly.
Wrap each fuzzy stick until the entire wreath is covered.
This step is entirely optional. Choose roses or flowers to add to the wreath. You may wrap the roses around the wreath with a fuzzy stick. Or just stick the stems through the wreath as I did here. You may add a creative touch by adding See’s candy or heart lollipops. I also added some shiny pink hearts to the wreath that has multiple shades of pink.
There you have it. Enjoy giving it to your Valentine!
