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 to start seeing the project coming together in my mind. Hint: it might be a wee bit 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.

Pro secret:

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).

Next: Plan your design arrangement. Then, make your bow (see how I made this bow HERE). Begin to loosely arrange all of the elements on the grapevine wreath. During this process, I add, subtract, and move elements around to decide on their final placement. After you are happy with the placement of the elements start attaching floral picks (that have been cut apart) with floral wire. If that is not possible then hot glue the elements into place.

Pro Secret:

Using floral wire (this is the one I used) to secure the wreath elements so you can easily move them to change the design or to update at a later time.

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 scale of the wreath. 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 (these are 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.

Love is in the air!!
