If you’re looking for a fun way to add interest to your front door and celebrate Valentine’s Day, try making this DIY Valentine Ribbon Wreath.
It’s a cute way to be festive AND thin out your craft supplies too.
Real talk. I’m the type of person who saves everything just in case I can use it in the future. Most of this ribbon comes from a project I did in Mila’s room… while I was pregnant.
Now I’m happy I saved it for this quick DIY, but it’s a little embarrassing I kept it for that long, oops.
Anyways, here’s what I used for this DIY Valentine Ribbon Wreath:
- Scrap Ribbons
- Scrap Fluffy Yarn
The first thing I did was cut out a heart for the frame out of cardboard. I actually cut out a big one then cut a smaller one from it to just get the outline. This can be a little tricky with cardboard, but I promise it can be done!
After the heart frame was ready, I got my scrap ribbons out. Like I said before, they’re from Mila’s nursery, so a ton of pinks. What’s fun about this DIY is you can use any color ribbon or yarn to fit your style.
To secure on the heart, I double knotted the ribbon. Then if the ends were too long, I trimmed it up.
I actually use quite a lot of ribbon. Just keep adding until it’s almost full.
Then, I added my fluffy yarn in pink and cream to the heart. This gave it so much more dimension and interest. When I just had the ribbon on it, it was boring, so I totally would recommend adding something like yarn or anything soft.
When everything on there, you can fluff the ribbon and yarn to make it look fuller.
To make it be able to hang, I attached a run on on both side of the heart bumps (no idea what else to call this). Then, I tied a bow at the top to hang it from my wreath holder. This way it wasn’t hanging at an angle and you can clearly tell it’s a heart.
Now you have a beautiful DIY Valentine Ribbon Wreath and was able to use that extra craft supplies you have laying around.
A total win-win for Love Day.
Have you ever used cardboard to make a wreath? What are some other items you use?
