Light up your Valentine’s Day Wreath

Valentine’s Decorating

When he’s home hubs and I are just the two of us most of the time.  I think were complacent but Valentine’s isn’t  a big thing for us.  I get flowers, he gets some chocolates a couple of extra deserts and we share a bottle of wine.  Although its super toned down around here I still decided to make this little Valentines heart wreath.

That said I love looking at all the Valentine’s Day decoration ideas, the lace, the pinks, the cutest cupids, the Victorian styling all of it.    Pink is my favorite colour always has been, so checking out Valentines posts is a very good time.

This little craft was made from stuff I already had.  I refused to buy anything special for it.  I had to fight off the dust bunnies in the storage room but I think its pretty awesome considering I made it from what was here.

This is what you will need to make one of your own.

A white coat hanger (dollar store)

White bling branches (christmas decor)

Pink ribbon, narrow and wide (dollar store)

Battery operated lights

This is so simple to make I am sure when you saw it you knew what I did.

Tutorial

Cut a coat hanger or other wire you have and shape into a heart.

Wrap the Christmas bling around the heart frame.

My Christmas bling was white so I added pink ribbon for valentines.

Place the battery pack for the lights at the bottom of the heart frame.  Attach it using tape. I used white electrical tape.

Wrap the wide ribbon around the battery pack to cover it, make sure that the battery pack switch is still accessible.  Finally tie it in a pretty bow.

Tweek it if necessary  Make sure all of the hangar is covered, even out the ribbon ends.  Check it for symmetry.

I hung this valentine on my bedroom mirror using a little suction cup.  Unfortunately I was not able to get a nice picture in that room.   The winter days here have lengthen to almost 9 hours but bedroom is so dull.  I  think these pictures give you the general idea though.

Enjoy the day.

  1. Very cute, Leanna! Valentine’s Day is pretty toned down around here too – we don’t even do the chocolates and flowers. I prefer to do celebrate throughout the year. Your cute heart could be used year-round in a bedroom, little girl’s room or above the guest table at a wedding.

    1. Great idea Marie, I will put it on the mirror in the guest room for the little ones.

      You could make it larger for at a wedding without much effort. Add another coat hanger and thats about the only difference.

      Thanks for commenting. Leanna

    1. The shortest day of the year is Dec 21st, we get 7.5 hours of daylight in Edmonton, it lengthens about two minutes a day after that. But the sun is so low on the horizon that the angle of the sunshine is very different than in the summer.

      Thank you for the comment. I am sure I saw your heart as well, but I need to go back and look again.

      Have a great week. Leanna

    1. Hi Debra:

      I will leave it up in the girls guest room for a little bit. It will be sparkly and they adore sparkly anything. I believe its genetic.

      Thanks for the comment.

  2. That is so clever and cute, Leanna.

    How do I find the Valentine crafts for children that you mentioned in another post? I haven’t been able to access it. I was really curious to now if I could do any of the projects with my grandsons.

  3. This is such a pretty little heart craft. I like how you used light up branches, I need to find some of those for myself. I have some tiny fairy lights, maybe those would work.
    Thanks for sharing your Valentine’s Day idea at the #HomeMattersParty this week.

  4. So adorable and I like the addition of the lights. We don’t usually go all out for Valentine’s Day either because my husband’s birthday is the week before so I understand just keeping it low key. Thanks for sharing. #HomeMattersParty

  5. Hello Leanna, really you have shared amazing and attractive blog. Your color selection is awesome. It’s very useful blog for me for home decorates in February season. Thanks for sharing this wonderful blog.
