Yarn Wrapped Valentine’s Wreath Tutorial

Last year, I had the awesome opportunity to have an endcap tutorial and display at Pat Catan’s craft store. This Yarn Wrapped Valentine’s Wreath was a fun and quick Valentine’s Day decor project. I still have it, and I’m excited to display it on my front door in a few weeks. Follow this tutorial to make your own.

Paint the hearts red, and let them dry completely. It took three coats for me to get the hearts completely covered.

Cut small pieces of yarn. Spell out the word “love” with one piece of yarn representing one letter on one heart. Hot glue into place.

Next wrap the wreath with the yarn. This step takes the longest. You may have to go over it twice to make sure you cover the wreath completely.

 

Pull twine through the holes on the hearts and position the hearts on the wreath. Hot glue them into place once you have them where you want them.

Use the jute ribbon to create a hanger and bow for the wreath. Secure it around the top of the wreath. The easiest way to do this is to use one piece of jute ribbon to create the hanger and attach it to the wreath. Then use another piece of jute ribbon to make a bow, and hot glue it to the hanger piece.

This wreath takes about an hour to make, and this includes wrapping the wreath and drying time for the paint.
