DIY Burlap & Ribbon Valentine’s Day Wreath

This DIY Burlap & Ribbon Valentine’s Day Wreath is my newest wreath creation, and I’m so excited to be sharing it with you all, along with  Cindy at Country Road 407, and several other talented bloggers for a whole new year of Pinterest Challenges! Welcome to those of you making your way here from The Farmhouse Life!

Here’s how the Pinterest Challenge works: Several different bloggers take the same photo, and create something similar that will work in their own homes and with their own style.

This month’s inspiration photo is from Sky at Capital B. I love the sweet simplicity of her papercraft Valentine wreath.

My DIY Fall Burlap & Ribbon Wreath, Re-imagined

My DIY Burlap & Ribbon Wreath for fall was a fun project. When I originally created it, I purposely used neutral colors and didn’t attach anything to it permanently, so that I could easily revamp it for future holidays.

When I saw Sky’s wreath with the craft paper hearts, I knew right away this would be a great way to easily turn my fall wreath into a DIY Burlap & Ribbon Valentine‘s Day wreath.

How I Did It

1. I Added Valentine Ribbons

I cut 12-inch lengths of two valentine-y ribbons, twisted them together in the middle with a pipe cleaner, and then attached them right on top of the neutral ribbons that were already in place.

2. I Replaced the Pumpkins with Hearts

The pumpkins were just picks that removed easily, and the center pumpkin embellishment was attached with a pipe cleaner, so it came right off. I replaced all the pumpkin embellishments with a valentine centerpiece (from Hobby Lobby) and the wooden craft hearts (from Dollar Tree).

3. I Mod Podged the Hearts with craft paper

Like Sky, I used simple craft paper to give my wreath some color for Valentine’s Day. I traced my wooden hearts onto the back of the craft paper, and then used Mod Podge to attach them. My wreath will be hanging outside on a covered porch and won’t get direct rain or snow on it, but the Mod Podge should keep the paper from curling up because of moisture in the air.

4. I Glued Pipe Cleaners to the Back of the Wooden Hearts

Using a big glob of hot glue, I attached pipe cleaners to the back of each heart.

5. I Attached the hearts to the wreath

I attached the galvanized tin & wooden heart to the center of the wreath using a pipe cleaner, so it can be removed the next time I update this wreath. I decided it needed a bit more color in the middle, so I cut apart a cardboard heart chain that I got from Dollar Tree, and glued one section of it to the wooden heart in the middle.

Then, I attached my other hearts to the wreath by pushing the pipe cleaner through a gap in the burlap and twisting it onto the wire wreath frame. I used 5 hearts and spaced them evenly around the wreath.

That’s It!

In less than 30 minutes, it looked like I had a whole new wreath, with minimal money spent. Plus, once again, I can easily remove the Valentine elements, and create a new look for the next holiday or occasion.

  1. Great idea to reuse and repurpose an older wreath. It looks so pretty with the red hearts. I love seeing how others make their wreaths just as much as I enjoy making them. Thanks for sharing with us again this week. #HomeMattersParty

  2. Your wreath is so pretty! What a good idea to repurpose your wreath from the fall. I like that this is Valentine’s Day-themed but it’s not all pink and “girly.”

    Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!

  3. Wow, Niky!!! I love how you can just change out pieces on your wreath from one season to the next, but I have to ask… How did you create the beginning wreath?? Are those just lengths of ribbons tied on a round frame?? Just curious, thanks! Nice to be with you on this month’s PC tour. <3

    Enjoy your beautiful wreath and Happy Valentine's soon!
    Hugs,
    Barb 🙂

  4. You are so smart to redecorate a wreath that you already have for a different season. I’m picturing in my head St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and 4th of July. I also like your tip for attaching the hearts by gluing a pipe cleaner to the back of the heart.

    Since you are a teacher, you may get a kick out of this. One year we were using pipe cleaners for a science project and one of my students ran out and he raised his hand and told me that he needed more tail pipe cleaners. He probably didn’t know what a pipe that you smoke was. I got such a kick out of that.

  5. Niky, I never would’ve guessed that you repurposed your fall burlap wreath! I love that! Great trick using pipe cleaner to attach your Mod Podge hearts, too. The wreath turned out so precious!

  6. Your Valentines wreath is precious Niky! I love the vibrant colors for the season, and of course repurposing an old wreath is always clever (why didn’t I think of that? LOL).
