Valentines DIY Heart Shaped Wreath

Make a Valentine DIY Heart wreath with corsage pins and pink cardstock. Super simple to do and beautiful Valentine's Day decor to display!

The kids just love to have a few seasonal decorations up in the house each holiday, and whipping up this Valentines DIY heart shaped wreath was something that really made them happy. If it looks a little familiar…it really should. One of my most popular tutorials ever for the DIY Paper Pomander Ball was made the exact same way! I love how the paper flowers and corsage pins look on this delicately romantic looking wreath.

How to Make a Valentines DIY Heart Shaped Wreath

This project is easy to do, but fair warning,  it’s one of those sit-in-front-of-the-tv-and-make projects because it does take a bit of time to assemble. And when I say easy, I mean it’s totally one you can draft your significant other or any unsuspecting loved one to help you with.

You can buy everything in the materials list at your local craft store.

Materials:

  • 3-4 pink cardstock in varying shades
  • Hydrangea flower punch
  • 8 inch foam heart wreath form
  • Corsage pins with white heads

 

Make a Valentine DIY Heart wreath with a flower punch, corsage pins and foam form--super easy and beautiful!

Step 1. Punch! I used somewhere between 3 and 4 sheets of cardstock to punch out all the flowers for my wreath. Be sure to use different shades of pink cardstock to add a little more depth and texture to your wreath. It makes a difference.

Step 2. Bend and pin! Layer up two of your flower punches and bend the petals inward to give them some curve and make them a tad more realistic. Push a corsage pin through the center of the flower stack.

Step 3. Attach to wreath. From here, all you have to do is pin your doubled up flowers to your heart shaped wreath form until it’s completely covered with flowers. When you pin them in, make sure you off-set the petals by twisting them at angles to each other so they look nice and full. I used about 140 pins to cover my heart, but your mileage will vary.

Step 4. Trim the pins. This is optional. I quickly found out that my particular corsage pins were longer than my heart wreath was thick. A quick trip to the garage for the wire cutters solved the problem. After you punch the pins through, just trim off any extra that comes through the back. Prickly hearts are no fun! Hopefully your pin/form ratio works a bit better than mine and and you don’t have to do any trimming.

Hang your Valentines DIY heart shaped wreath on the wall or nestle it in among your things to add a little Valentine’s Day love to your decor!
