Making a Valentine Wreath

christmascandyFebruary 10, 2013

I made a wreath for Valentine's Day using a styrofoam packing circle I salvaged from an electronic device we purchased, a foam valentine kit and other valentine items I bought on clearance after the holiday last year.

I glued and stapled some red glitter wire edged ribbon to a styrofoam packing circle I salvaged out of a box of something we bought.

After finishing the gluing and stapling:

The foam valentines had additional foam sticker pieces that could be placed on the valentines in any way. I also bought a spool of ribbon to make the bow and the samll hearts and sayings at Michaels 90% off after V Day last year.

The final product:

All the heart and saying pieces are glittered and balsa wood. Since it is styrofoam, foam, and balsa, it is very light weight.

I was inspired by a wreath made using vintage valentines that I saw last year.

Happy Valentine's Day everybody,
Candy

Candy, your Valentine wreath is beautiful. Always fun to make things when the price is right! You do such an amazing job making your bows. Love the colors on the ribbon. The pretty red glitter heart in the center states it perfectly, SWEET!

Stay safe and warm.
