Hey Friends!!

I hope y’all are having a great weekend!

This week wraps-up the last week of our “Dog Days of Winter” Challenges. The theme for this week’s challenge is “Love It.” That means we want to see all of your Valentine’s Day related projects! It can be Valentine’s Day decor, crafts, and/or recipes. I’m excited to share my project for the challenge with you today!

My Valentine’s Day Wreath…..

Valentine's Day Yarn Wreath

What do you think?!

I know it’s not the traditional Valentine’s Day colors, but that’s alright with me. Sometimes it’s fun to change things up a bit, don’t ya think?!

This wreath was super easy to make! I just started with a straw wreath that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. It was $3.99, but I used my 40% off coupon to purchase it. I bought a package of light gray yarn (also from Hob Lob) & just wrapped it around the straw wreath until it was completely covered. There is no need to take the plastic packaging off the straw wreath….just leave it in place!!

Then I got busy making these super fun felt roses to decorate the wreath. I just bought several different colors of felt at Hobby Lobby to make them.

Valentine's Day Yarn Wreath

1. Start buy cutting a circle out of the felt. For larger roses, you’ll want a large circle. For smaller roses, you’ll need a small one. To give the look of petals, you can cut out of wavy pattern along the outside edge.

2. Then cut your circle in a spiral as shown in the picture above. Continue the wavy pattern throughout until you reach the center of the circle, which will be your flower base.

3. Starting at the outside of the felt/circle, begin rolling your felt towards the center.

4. The more you roll it, the more it should start resembling a rose.

5. When you get to the end, you will be left with the base at the center of the circle. Hot glue the felt rose to the base to secure it. If the base is wider than the rose itself, simply trim off any excess.

You can also refer to this tutorial from Kim at Sand & Sisal. This is the tutorial I referred to before making my roses.

To dress them up a bit, I hot glued a pearl to the center of each rose. This is completely optional.  I used my leftover pearls from this project. Then I hot glued each rose to the wreath.

Once I had all of my roses made, I decided to add a little bunting to the center of the wreath. I just used some cardstock & my cricut machine to cut out my triangles & the letters “XOXO”.

You can secure the bunting to the wreath using straight pins and/or hot glue.

Once my bunting was added, the wreath was ready for a little photoshoot….

I just hung my wreath using some pink & white polka dot ribbon that I found at Walmart. You can hang yours however you like!

  2. oh gosh, i just love this! how do you feel about whipping up another and sending it to maryland!? ;) Love the colors you chose! beautiful!

  3. Cute cute cute! I love the gray, I used non-traditional colors for my Valentine wreath this year too. :)

  4. Oh. My. GOODNESS! This is so pretty, Tonya! I want one for myself. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day but could easier be transitioned to a spring wreath.

  5. Beautiful!!! I’ve been working on a similar wreath for some time now but with smaller roses made out of paper and all around the wreath. Not finished yet though, a much bigger job than I had anticipated. The felt gives a gorgeous result I must say. Maybe I’ll make a wreath like yours first and then work on the paper one from time to time;-)
    Bye,
    Marian

  21. your wreath is adorable, Tonya! Love the felt roses – I have never made those – need to fix that. :)

  22. I am in love with this wreath so much that we are making it for our next craft night! I was wondering if you could help me with supplies. There will be 6 of us. How many pieces of felt do you think we will each need and how much yarn? Any help in this would be greatly appreciated!!

    • Hi Jenn!
      You will probably need one thing of yarn per person! And as far as the roses, you can probably get two roses out of one piece of felt! Have fun!
