Tutorial: Valentine’s Day Wreath

It’s February and I am a sucker for Valentine’s Day. How can you not be? It’s a holiday that involves the combination of red and pink, ruffles, frills and l-o-v-e. Embrace it.

It got a little inspiration from the cover of this month’s Martha Stewart Living: A Valentine’s Day wreath. Eh…check. You know I love a good wreath.

I took an old cardboard box and drew/cut out a heart for the base.

I started making paper flowers. Keep an eye out at Goodwill for wrapping paper, tissue paper, etc. that you could use. Or, use what you have around the house!

First, cut out a square (I used 8 sheets/square).

Fold your square in an accordion fashion.

Fold the tissue in half and trim the ends into a half circle. This just gives your flowers and extra texture.

I tied the fold with string and trimmed the excess.

Now, just fluff your flower by pulling each piece of tissue towards the center.

And…make several more. Really, this is simple and fun! As you can see, I have a mixture of light pink, hot pink, and red.

Attach the flowers to your base with hot glue or tape. I used mailing tape and it is holding up really well.

I like it so much! It adds festivity and a sweet feeling to my living room.

Have you done anything for Valentine’s Day, yet? If so, I would love to see! Jump on board! Let’s celebrate this month of love.

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra
