DIY Farmhouse Valentine’s Wreath

DIY Farmhouse Valentine's Wreath

I’m so excited to share with you my latest DIY – a farmhouse Valentine’s Wreath! I’ve joined up with some fellow bloggers for a DIY Pinterest Challenge Valentine’s Wreath blog hop! You’ll find lots of inspiration for decorating this Valentine’s Day.

{Affiliate links are used for your convenience.)

Our inspiration for this blog hop is a Valentine’s Heart Wreath tutorial we found on Pinterest from Christina at The DIY Mommy. She created a heart wreath by using book pages and it is super cute! We are taking our inspiration from her DIY and using our own ideas and materials to make a similar project.

Materials Needed

How To Make A Farmhouse Valentine’s Wreath

First I started by creating the backdrop that I wanted to display my wreath on. While I was at Hobby Lobby last week I found an 11×14 wood sign on clearance for just $5.49. I didn’t love the design but I knew that a little paint could fix it right up.

I took some of my decor paint from Country Chic Paint in the color Simplicity and painted 2 coats on my sign. This covered the existing design completely.

Next I took some wired olive leaf greenery garland that I had picked up last year for $3 in the Dollar Spot and started forming it into a heart. As I went along layering the garland I cut small lengths of floral wire and twisted them around the garland holding the pieces together.

Then I took some ribbon and slid it between the garland strands. I taped the ribbon to the back of my sign to hold it in place. This way if I want to change the wreath out later I can easily take it off.

    Leslea, simple supplies and execution, but oh so impactful. I how a project comes from simple ingredients. Your wreath is so pretty in the frame and could be used year round. Great to be introduced to you in the challenge. Great example of using something you already have on hand.
