DIY Valentines Day Wreath

DIY Valentines Day Wreath

I am not sure if I should even call this a wreath. I was scouting the craft store and wondering what type of door wreath could I create that could get me through to Valentines Day wreath and changeable for St Patrick’s Day. I noticed very large wooden letters. I have made fun Halloween decorations with them before but never seen them this large. I purchased it plus some Valentine’s Day Ribbon and Hearts. Now to create a Valentines Day Wreath that I can interchange…

IMG_4746I had some left over Frog Painters Tape from my Dog Food Container project last spring. Since my door is a bright green color, I thought black and white would stick out the best.

I first painted my Wooden letter white and allowed it to dry completely.

Then add your painters tape and the magic happens. Be sure to press it hard so you don’t get any bleeder paint.

Allow the project to paint over night and then gently pull off the painters tape.

I think it looks great without any bows, but we are trying to make a Valentines Day Wreath remember…

I was so excited about the result. I added a roping to the back of the letter for hanging using a staple gun. I already had the roping and thought it looked better than a white ribbon.

Make a bow out of your Valentine’s Day ribbon and attach it to the initial with florist wire. This is where it becomes interchangeable.

I added a few sparkly hearts and ta da, you are done.

After Valentines Day you can change it up for St Patrick’s Day, Mardi Gras, birthdays, you name it. I am thrilled with the result and hope you have found some inspiration to create your own Valentines Day Initial Wreath for your door.
