Is it too early to decorate for Valentine's Day?

I don't think so!

Ever since moving to the new place, I decided that I want to be one of those wreath people. You know, those people who don't just stick to the standard Christmas wreath once a year, but the ones with a wreath for every occasion. Valentine's Day, St Patrick's Day, Spring, Fall etc. etc.
And since this is my year of DIY, I'm making them all myself.

First things first, you are going to need to gather supplies. I headed to Michaels for all of mine.

I actually bought the "love" sign more then a year ago and as you can see, it has been through a bit of a rough time. I used the paint and some ribbon to decorate the sign and it came out looking like new.  

Next, it is time to start wrapping yarn around the wreath. I hot-glued the start of the ball of yarn to the wreath and just wound it around and around (and around) making sure that it was tight and there were no gaps.

At the end of all that wrapping, hot glue the end of your yarn to the wreath (making sure you put the join on the backside) and you should have something that looks like this:

Next is the fun part. Glue your decorations onto your wreath. (I added my newly painted love sign and a pink feather)

Add a ribbon to the top of your wreath and hang on your door!


  1. So cute!
    I think I want to be one of those "wreath people" too. I don't know if I could ever be put together enough to decorate the whole house for every holiday but a cutie wreath on the door and maybe a glass container with conversation hearts? Easy. Done.

  2. very cute, I might have to steal this idea!

  3. This is awesome - I love it! And looks like something I might even be able to do myself {DIY's often end in disaster for me ;)}
