I just adore making wreaths! They are such a fun way to add a little holiday or seasonal decoration to your home. I usually have at least three or four up in the house at a time. Front door, back door, mantel and more – no place is safe! This sweet little Hearts and Lovebirds Valentine’s Day Wreath is up over my mantel and I think I might even leave it up for Spring. The little lovebirds would work for that too don’t you think?
I’m kind of on a pastel kick so I’ve decorated this in shades of turquoise and pink – and of course I’ve added pom poms and a pennant. I seem to think no wreath is complete without them.
How sweet are these little lovebirds?? I think they are so darling sitting on their little branch.
So let’s get started! Here’s what you’ll need: (Materials may contain affiliate links)
- Foam Wreath Form – any size will work
- Yarn – Pink, White, and Light Turquoise
- Felt – same colors as yarn (This wool felt is really similar and it’s a great pastel color palette)
- Two Small Lovebirds (mine came from Hobby Lobby but I think you can find them in most floral sections)
- Small scraps of fabric and baker’s twine
- Hot Glue
Begin by wrapping the bottom section of your wreath with white and pink yarn. I wrapped the foam with white, then added in a pink stripe after every four white wraps. Wrap just under half of the wreath.
Finish wrapping your wreath with just the pink yarn. Glue down all the yarn ends on the back side of the foam.
Create an assortment of pom poms in all three colors of yarn. Add in a couple felt flowers for some texture. Pin or glue the pom poms along the bottom right quarter of the wreath.
Glue the hearts along a piece of baker’s twine. Check your layout on your wreath form before you do. If you’re using a really large form, you might want more space or even more hearts.
Find a small twig that will work for your wreath. Poke a small hole in the foam of the wreath behind the pom poms on the middle, right side. Pull the twig back out, add hot glue to the end, and put the twig back in the hole.
Glue your little lovebirds in place on the twig. Awwwww!
Create mini felt bows for each side of the bunting. Glue the bow and baker’s twine in place on the sides of the wreath.
And that’s it! I love how sweet it turned out!
So sweet right? I’d love to see your version if you make one up!

I just love this wreath! I will start collecting what I need to make it. The love birds will be the hardest thing to find. I will send you a photo when it is done – hopefully before this Valentine’s day. Love your work very much. Thank you for the pattern.
