I have such a fun little Valentine’s Wreath for you today!
I don’t always feel like using the traditional colors for holidays – but I guess I was in a romantic mood because this wreath is all pink and white and lace sweetness –
and decorated with a little embroidered “SweetHeart” pennant!
This isn’t a huge wreath which I love – it’s made with a 10″ Styrofoam wreath form. So it can be hung on the door – or over a mirror – or even on a gallery wall display!
I love how the combination of the jute with the “pearls” (pearl stick pins) looks too – it’s such a fun contrast.
This is really fast to do too – I think the whole thing took me about 3 hours – with distractions of course. (Is it possible to craft without distractions . . . ever? Not here it’s not.)
Plus – I had all the supplies on hand so it was free. Free is always more awesome. :)
Ready for a tutorial? Here we go!
- 1 Styrofoam Wreath Form – mine was 8″
- Jute – enough to wrap wreath. I used about half of a large roll
- Pink and White felt
- Embroidery floss
- Baby rick rack
- Pearl Stick pins
- Hot glue/gun
Start by wrapping your wreath form with jute. This is pretty self-explanatory. Glue one end down, then just wrap.
I found it was easier to not pull out too much jute – and to just wrap the package around and let the jute come out a little at a time.
Keep wrapping. Keep wrapping.
Next up – make up a few felt flowers. I made two regular felt rosettes and then layered three felt rosettes with 3 folded ruffle flowers. You can find instructions for all those on the How To Do That flowers page.
I made one of the layered flowers bigger than the others so that it could be a sort of centerpiece.
Arrange the flowers along the lower left side of the wreath form. Insert pearl stick pins through the centers, then into the wreath to hold them on. You might have a little trouble getting them through the glue but I have all confidence that you can do it.
Cut out six little pennants out of felt. With a disappearing marker, write out the letters and a heart.
WESET heart. Mr. FT calls me that all the time.
Embroider the letters and heart with a backstitch. You can find the instructions for that on the Embroidery page.
Glue a little bit of baby rick rack to the back of the pennants. Cause we need more cuteness. And rick rack is always appropriate.
Glue the little pennant pieces to thin lace and tie bows in each end.
Add the pennant bunting to the top side of the wreath, a little to the right side. Pin it to the wreath with the pearl stick pins.
Add some pink and white pearl pins around the wreath for a little fun.
And that’s it! So fun and easy right?
What do you think? I think I need some Valentine’s chocolate

What a beautiful Wreath. Love the pale rose combined with the cream color. The Jute adds an earthy quality to the entire wreath. Thanks for sharing. I wanted to create a Valentine Wreath, but was devating on what to use to cover the Wreath… You have inspired me so much. Have a great week.
So pretty! I love anything delicate and pink! And I really like the pins in the wreath over the twine such a cute touch! Thanks for sharing!

Very soft, feminine & romantic. I have a burgundy, pink & cream white felt rose wreath that I’ve been wanting to put a bunting on. I like how you used ric rac & embroidered yours :-) Thank you for inspiring us!

This is adorable. I am going to do this for a Christmas wreath. I only have a couple of straw wreaths, but think that would also work just fine. . . don’t you? Don’t know how I’ll embellish it yet except with pearls and something cute. Any ideas?

Would you be able to share about how big your little pennants are? Are they as big as 2″ to the point or more like an inch or am I completely off? :-).
