Hey there friends! Today I am bringing you another Valentine’s Day DIY.
In order to keep in line with my theme from my last Valentine’s Day post where I shared I just want to make useful creations for my home that won’t clutter my space, I thought I would create a wreath that I could hang on my front door, but not “scream” Valentine’s Day only.
I saw this wreath on Grandin Road and I thought it was darling! I liked how it was made of greenery and could be used longer than just for Valentine’s Day. However the price was a bit much so I decided to make one myself.
I could not find any heart shaped wire wreath forms at Dollar Tree this time around so I decided to use what I had on hand. I traced and cut out a large heart form from some poster board using my favorite box cutter.
Next, I covered the entire heart in jute twine. This gave it more strength and made it look a lot nicer too (in case there were any peeks through the greenery.)
For the greenery I used the eucalyptus bushes from Wal Mart. They carry the small ones for under $1 and some larger ones for about $3. I used a combination of both since they are a slightly different color and would give the wreath nice dimension.
I removed each of the stems individually with a wire cutter and hot glued them onto the wreath form. I placed them with the stems facing the bottom point of the heart from either side.
I alternated the leaves: some light and some dark and moved my way up to the top of the heart.

This took a bit of time since I was going for a really full heart, but in the end it all came together just the way I had hoped.
I used some neutral striped ribbon from Dollar Tree to hang it and that was it!
All in all this wreath cost me less than $20 and so much better than the original $100 price tag. The great thing is that I can leave it up longer during Spring so I don’t have to change out my decor as often.
What do you think? I love how it turned out.
