Make a Floral Valentine Wreath that adds a Love-ly, Romantic Touch to your Home.
Decorating for Valentine’s Day can be an easy transition by using almost the same color scheme as Christmas. Sticking with the same red and green color scheme as your base and adding pink, white or both and you’ll have Valentine colors that speak of romance and love. Whether you are in the mood to make a large Valentine wreath for your front door or a small one to add to your pantry door. Feel like adding something a little sweet. Why not tuck in some faux box chocolates or a pretty stuffed heart? That would be unexpected.
Valentine Wreath DIY
The items we used in this wreath:
- 4 red hydrangeas (about 5 1.2-6” across)
- 4 pink hydrangeas (size same as above)
- Assorted hydrangea leaves (approximately 20)
- Smilax greenery
- Stuffed heart (this one is approximately 12” w/ an eyelet overlay)
- 2 different patterned ribbon for bow
- 1 18” grapevine wreath base
Have you ever thought about using your Christmas tree for a Valentine decoration?
I like to think of a tree as a BIG floral arrangement. Floral arrangements, whether a wreath or a stand alone arrangement, are no longer just florals and greenery. Today they are a mixture of all different elements from signs and ribbon, to sisal bunnies and bird nests or wood bird houses. Lots of different textures and elements make it way more interesting. So I like to think of these same elements when keeping a tree up after the holiday season.
I like to transition into the next holiday or season by leaving one tree up and making it into a Valentine tree. You may be thinking that sounds like a lot of work to take down one tree and put up another one. But you can easily transition the one you already have up into a Valentine tree with very little effort. Simply add some pink and white to your red and green color scheme.
Did you notice the little elves? These are some of my favorites with a candy theme that can easily transition.
This pencil tree is standing in my office, so I enjoy it on a daily basis. But I have to keep it simple since I only have that one small area to keep it in. I know a lot of designers put up large seasonal trees and I love the way it looks. But there are a lot of factors to take into consideration and probably the most important question to ask yourself is do you have the space? Or if you have small children is it practical? Or if you have pets that climb on things will that work for you?
Just because a large tree doesn’t work, don’t let that stop you from enjoying a Valentine or Spring tree. For me the lights alone make it worth having up. You can also use a tree on a tabletop or a pencil tree like I used for the same effect. Like I mentioned before, it is just a big arrangement, so have fun with it.
One of our most popular items that we sell are our designer bows. We make them in all different kinds of ribbon for every holiday and occasion. They can easily be added to any wreath, swag, garland, tree top or arrangement. Check out some of our options below to inspire and create your own or we will be happy to make it for you. Especially with the three ribbon bow it might actually be less expensive than buying 3 rolls of ribbon.
