Valentine Wreath Tutorial: A Heart-Shaped Felt Craft
A Valentine’s wreath is a great way to decorate and add a little bit of warmth and love to your home decor in February. Here are the step-by-step instructions for this simple wreath. Making your own Valentine’s Day decorations takes a bit time but it is so fun!
Mini Valentine Wreath Craft Supplies:
- 3 sheets of 9 in x 12 in basic felt (available at your local craft store, use any different colors you’d like for your DIY wreaths)
- one wire hanger (the thinner ones work best)
- pliers and or wire cutters (not required but might help)
- twine or red yarn (for hanging the DIY wreath)
How To Make A Valentine Wreath:
Start this heart wreath tutorial by untwisting your wire hanger.
You are going to use about half the hanger so you might want to go ahead and cut half of it off. Use wire trimmers or needle nose pliers for best results.
Next start bending and forming your wire hanger into the shape of a heart. You might need your pliers to help you bend the wire. It doesn’t have to be a perfect heart shape. Your felt will hide any imperfection spots. This creates the wire form for your DIY Valentine’s Day wreath.
Once your heart is formed, grab your felt sheets. I used pink and red felt. Cut the felt sheets in half vertically and then cut small 1-1 1/2″ strips horizontally. They don’t have to be perfect. I didn’t even measure mine!
Now you are ready to start tying your felt onto your wire heart. I packed my strips of felt pretty tight to make a thick Valentines Day Wreath.
Tie strips of your felt until the wire hanger is completely covered. Now you have a DIY Valentine Wreath!
I used paper craft rope to tie at the top of the heart wreath so I could hang it up. Any string/cord/twine will work. And that is how to make an easy felt wreath!
This cute wreath is the perfect way to decorate your home with some hearts to represent love.
