Target has had some beautiful home decor lately and I’m proud- I’ve been resisting temptation quite well. One thing I’ve been eyeing is a pretty Valentine’s Day wreath. I’m not one for too many seasonal decorations, but this is an elegant wreath which could actually be displayed year round. I made a fall wreath last year and it was super easy, so I knew I could turn this into a d.i.y as well.
You will need a grapevine heart wreath. I found this one at Michael’s (use a 40% off coupon) and it brings it down to $2.60. There are similar Heart Shaped Wreaths on Amazon that come in a package of 6 for only $10 (Perfect if you’d like to give these to loved ones for Valentine’s Day).
Berry sprigs are also what I used for the fall wreath and they are extremely easy to work with. I would recommend picking them up when they are on sale because they typically are $1.99 each. In all, I used three berry sprigs, but broke them apart to place around the wreath. I also picked up craft paints in red, pink and light pink. If you want to add a little more pizzazz you can sprinkle glitter on the wet paint.
Since my berries were already a pretty gold, I decided to sporadically paint berries and leave gold as one of my primary wreath colors. Craft paint dries quickly so you can assemble your wreath within an hour.
You also want to pick up floral wire which will be used to attach the sprigs in place on the wreath. As shown in the photo below, after you attach the sprigs you can twist the wire at the back of the wreath until the sprig is secure. Do this all the way around the wreath!
I attached a simple cloth strip to the back and tied a bow for hanging. I think this definitely turned out better than the one at Target and it’s perfect for inside or outside use (cheaper too!)
