DIY Valentine’s Wreath

DIY Valentine’s Wreath

I went to three Dollar Trees in one day to find the supplies for a specific craft.  When I couldn’t locate a specific component, I made this wreath instead.

In hindsight, a Valentine’s wreath was probably a better craft than what I had originally planned.  Because I already owned the scarf and I used a gift card to buy the yarn, the entire craft only cost me $1.

Supplies

  • 1 heart-shaped wreath form
  • 1/2 ball (approximately 22 yards) bulky cream-colored yarn (Mine was Bernat Mega Bulky – Jumbo 7)
  • 1 festive scarf (pink, red, and purple are great!)
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun with glue sticks

Directions

  • Tie the yarn to the bottom left of the wreath form.  Begin to wrap the yarn around the form.  The yarn should be tight enough that you cannot see the form, but loose enough that the form does not bend and the yarn appears fluffy.  Continue wrapping until you reach the bottom right of the form, securing the yarn with hot glue every 3-4 inches.
  • Once you have completely wrapped the form in yarn, cut the yarn from the ball and use hot glue to secure the “tail” to the back of the wreath.  The hot glue will prevent unraveling.
  • Tie the scarf to the bottom left of the wreath.  Secure with hot glue if necessary.
  • Hang your wreath and celebrate the holiday of love!

Let me know in the comments:

  • What are your plans for Valentine’s day?
  • Do you have a favorite Bible verse about love?  Mine is probably Romans 5:8.
