Valentine’s Day Wreath (20 Minute Project)

I promise you, this is a 20 minute project. If that. My husband left the house to pick up our kid from school down the street and by time he was back, this was finished. A 20 minute Valentine’s Day wreath.

OH, and did I mention that the mesh was on clearance? Yeah, Christmas ribbon at 80% off from Michael’s. Cheap and fast… just my style.

• Straw wreath form still in its plastic
• 7 stems of Valentine’s Day spray ($1.29 each)
• 4 rolls of Christmas mesh ($4 marked down to 80¢ each)
• Greenery pins

Then grabbed it a couple loops and pinched it together.

I did NOT cut the mesh before the next pin. Just keep pulling loops and pinning.

And pretty soon (like less than 15 minutes) your wreath will look like this…

    Wow! That turned out great. I saw some of that ribbon on sale and just passed it by because I had no idea how to make a wreath with it. I’ll be on the lookout for the ribbon and give it a try.

    Nice. Very nice. Colors are vibrant. I am sure it will take me more than 20 minutes. :( Thank you so very much for sharing you talent with us.

    Love this! I am planning a rehearsal dinner with red as a primary color. I am going to try to make a few of these for some extra decor I need; then I will keep one for myself, and give one to the bride, and then have an extra! Your instructions seem simple and very clear! Thanks!

    What an awesome idea! I can imagine that this kind of wreath can be made for any type of holiday. I wonder what a wreath like this in “Christmas” colors would look like? I saved it to my “Pinterest” board for future reference. You did a great job Erin! Thanks for sharing your great idea!!
