I enjoy crafting and decorating to celebrate Valentine’s Day, so this year I am making a unique DIY Valentine’s wreath for my Mother’s front door.
DIY Valentine’s Wreath with Hand-Painted Sign
Decorating a lovely Valentine’s wreath can be so enjoyable. I find it so much fun to gather the elements and start seeing the project coming together in my mind. Hint: it might be slightly different once I start moving my materials around to figure placement. I made this wreath for my Mother’s front door. The color choice was easy since it was for Valentine’s, and she had a red door.

Always consult a color wheel if you are unsure of your door and wreath colors playing well together.
How to Make Valentine’s Wreath with Hand-Painted Sign
First step: Gathering all of your pretty flowers, ribbons, and other embellishments (I opted to hand paint a sign).
- Grapevine Wreath Form
- Roses Red
- Roses Pink
- Wire Cutters (this is the one I use)
- Love sign
- Hot Glue Gun with Glue
- Floral Wire
Next: Plan your design arrangement. Then, make your bow (see how I made this bow HERE). Now I can arrange all of the elements on the grapevine wreath. During this process, I add, subtract, and move elements around to decide their final placement. After you are happy with the arrangement of the elements, start attaching floral picks with floral wire; if that is not possible, then hot glue the elements into place.
Use floral wire (this is the one I used) to secure the wreath elements so you can quickly move them to change the design or update them later.
The hand-painted sign I made with chalk paints I sanded it to achieve a rustic, vintage look. I loved a Love sign I made for decorating a shelf, but it was a little too large for the wreath’s scale. Therefore, I had to reduce the sign size to accommodate the wreath size. In addition, I had to determine how I would attach it to the wreath before I started planning my design.
Purchase the best possible wire cutters (the ones I use). These are a crafter’s dream come true. You can cut through the entire floral pick in one squeeze—no more hand fatigue.
My Mother has an old-school screen door, so I had to hang the wreath on the screen door. The screen door was a surprise when I finished the wreath and arrived to hang it up, but it looks great on the screen.
Love is in the air!!
