Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath.

First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue.
I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them.
I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones.
Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible.
Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

  1. What size hearts did you use? I can only find 1 1/2" hearts for a large size.

  2. I used 2 inch for the smaller hearts and 3 inch for the bigger hearts. I most likely found them at Michaels, but it could have been Jo-Anns too. It was too many years ago that I made this and I can't really remember. =)
