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 were 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’s 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.
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.
