DIY Valentine's Wreath

I made this red, black and white wreath a few years back to fit the theme I had in my front room. It no longer fit the color scheme I have so I decided to just bring it our for Valentines and I just LOVE how it looks.  It'sone of my best creations!

 This wreath was really easy to make, just not exactly cheap. It helps to wait when items are on sale. I would guess it cost around $50. But it beats buying one when you can make it yourself!

You will need:
  • Round styrofoam wreath(that has squared off edges)
  • 16 red flowers
  • 1 black feather boa
  • 1 garland of black beads
  • 2-3 white pearly flowers (not sure what they're called)
  • hot glue gun and sticks
First take off all the stems from your red flowers then push them into the wreath and hot glue in clusters of four (two in front and two on the side). Do this all around the wreath leaving small space in between for the feather boa. Then you wrap the feather boa all the way around and glue. Next you wrap the bead garland around in no specific way just so it's noticeable. Lastly remove the pearl flowers from the stem and randomly place them around and in between the red flowers. It is best to turn as you go to cover all the angles. I purchased my embellishments at Michaels and Roberts but this was a few years ago so I'm sure you can use whatever.

  • The wreath fits perfectly with the rest of my Valentine decor!
