DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath

A few years ago, I made my first wreath and since then I have been slightly obsessed. My goal this year is to have one for every season. I made one for Valentine’s Day today, and I’m really proud of it. The best thing? It was so easy. I thought I would share how I did it, incase you are looking for some decoration inspiration (love that that rhymes).

IMGP6692For tools, all you’ll need are some wire cutters, a glue gun, glue sticks, and scissors.

With your cutters, cut off the roses so that there’s just a bit of the stem left. Do the same with the baby’s breath (or whatever flower you choose to use), but keep those stems a little longer, because you’ll want it to stick out a bit.

And just keep going. One thing I love about the rose bush that I bought is that it has different sizes of roses so that it gives the wreath (or whatever project you’re working on) some variety.

After some more gluing, this is the end result. I’m really happy with how this turned out. It is so easy too. Seriously. If you can use a glue gun, you can do this.

I am seriously in love with this wreath. I think it’s my favourite one yet. It makes me happy every time I open my door.

Be sure to come back tomorrow where I’ll be talking about one of my favourite things: pink nail polish.
