HOW TO MAKE A HEART SHAPED WREATH

I am so excited to share this DIY Dollar Tree Valentine wreath. I had so much fun making this DIY heart wreath and it is an easy craft for beginners so don't worry if it's your first time attempting something like this. Let's grab a few supplies and get started. I found my heart wreath at the Dollar Store but you may find one at your local craft store.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE A HEART SHAPED WREATH?

Now that you have all your supplies begin by cutting all the foil stuff off of the frame of the heart-shaped wreath form.

1. CLEAN DOLLAR TREE HEART WREATH FRAME

Take your scissors and start cutting around a small area of the foil. Once you are down to the frame cut the wire piece that the foil is attached to.

Now that the tiny wire has been cut start unwinding the foil garland from around the frame.

I discovered that this frame was plastic, pink, and had teeth on it. I removed the stuff sticking out after I made the wreath. But learn from me, I would remove the teeth before I started adding greenery. It will save you a hard time to only have the heart form.

Another thing that will be pretty is to paint the frame gold or silver with spray paint. The pink looks nice but I think gold would be very pretty.

2. ATTACH GREENERY TO HEART WREATH

Now take a piece of greenery and use the wire cutters to snip off the end close to where the branches shoot off. Then lay the greenery piece on the frame starting at the bottom of the heart and zip tie it to the frame.

Repeat this process moving around the heart shape and tucking the next sprig of greenery that you can cut under the last piece of greenery.

Continue moving around the heart and zip tieing wherever the greenery needs help curving with the frame.

When you get to the bottom make sure you place the greenery in such a way so that you do not see the end. Tuck it under where you began.

3.ADD FLOWERS TO THE VALENTINE WREATH

Next start pruning and positioning the flowers. Simply cut the stem off of the flowers. I love how real faux flowers look today, amazing!

Then add glue along the base and stick it into the greenery. I started with the larger flower first.

Then added the smaller peonies on the side with three peonies in total. Look at those pretty pink flowers!

Next, I added short stems of baby breath dipping the end into some glue from the glue gun on the plate then tucking it under the artificial flowers. Remember, a little bit of glue is all you need.

Once I had a few stems under the flowers I started repeating this step moving my way up the side of the heart and down under the peonies.

I did not add any flowers to the other half of the heart wreath.

Last take any pieces of greenery or cut leaves from stems and glue them over any zip ties that are showing.
