Simple Valentine's Day Wreath {Crafts}


Can you believe January is already OVER? Tomorrow begins the month of CANDY LOVE! I'm sure everyone is getting their pretty decorations put up, so I'm here today with a super simple tutorial for a Valentine's Day wreath for you to hang! I made this wreath in my last ditch attempt to have something on my door for my Valentine's Day pajama party I held last Friday. My original plan was to create some of those nifty paper flowers using cupcake liners, but every tutorial I found required pipe cleaners, which I don't have. 

While sifting around in the awesome sewing box my granny gave me (which is FULL of stuff my boyfriend calls junk craft supplies), I found this cute little circle form thingy. I honestly have NO idea what it's made from (it looks like rolled paper!) but I'm in love with it! That's when the AWESOME thought hit me to make a WREATH! (queue HUGE smile on my face...ask my sister who was witnessing the drama!)

So, my bloggy friends, I have a super simple tutorial for you! Check it out!

Here's what you'll need:
  • some type of circular wreath form (your choice in size; mine was only about 6 inches across)
  • LOTS of buttons to choose from
  • ribbon (wired is the best to use for this project)
  • scissors
  • bread ties
  • cupcake liners (I used Valentine's Day themed liners for one flower & plain white ones for another)
  • needle (any size)
This is how you will create it:

The final steps:

That's it! Don't you just love it?! I also had an extra flower left over (from creating this tutorial), so I decided to pretty up the living room lamps, too! What do you think?
