Valentine’s Day Felt Heart Wreath Tutorial

Valentine's Day Heart Wreath 1

Valentine’s day is such a fun time of year, but it can sneak up on you quick.  This year I’m ready! I’ve decorated my door with this sweet felt heart wreath.  You know I love felt and this turned out so nice that I’m sure I’ll use it for years to come.

I thought I would share a quick tutorial on how to make a wreath of your own.  It does take a little time, but it’s super easy!

Valentine's Day Wreath 2

Here’s what you need…

You’ll need a 12” foam wreath, felt, glue, a bit of wide ribbon and LOTS of pins!

I cut 2” circles out of felt with my Big Shot scrapbook paper cutting tool.  It doesn’t work that well with felt, but it does fine with simple shapes.

Here’s all you need to know…

  • Fold a circle in half.
  • Fold it again…hard work, isn’t it?
  • Pin it to the foam heart.
  • Continue pinning them right up against the last one.Valentine's Day Wreath 4

I used over 100 circles but it will depend on how close together you pin them.  It’s such a quick project once you have all your materials gathered and ready to use.

I didn’t add any circles to the back because the wreath felt a bit heavy and why do extra work you can’t see. :)  I added a bit of glue and a couple pins to hold the ribbon in place.  That’s it!

It really is that simple and I’m sure you could use the same ruffle technique to create lots of beautiful projects all year long!  I’m a sucker for anything with ruffles…ha! An all white circle wreath would perfect for a winter. 

Valentine’s Day is a great holiday to use handmade decorations all over your home.

Have you made any wreaths?  I’d love to hear about them!

    I love it! I just pinned one the other day and can’t wait to work on it. I did make a hymnal page wreath for my step-mom for Christmas, and loved how it turned out. I’ll post about it at some point! :)

      I found the wreath at Joann’s and I’m sure most craft stores have them. You might be able to read the brand in the photo and call first. :)

    This would be an adorable “Welcome Home” sign for Mom and Baby if done in blue or pink. I would add the Letters on some bunting or other banner. Very cute!

    I so love this wreath! I am a big fan of anything felt. Had to feature it on my CraftBliss blog and link back to you. Thanks for creating and sharing! ~Dee

    I love this wreath!! I am going to make another one in a green material for St. Patrick’s day-probably use a circle wreath for that one since a shamrock might be hard to find. This is SO simple and fun! Just think of the possibilities-purple, pink, and yellow for easter, red white and blue for the 4th of July…pretty sure this just became my go to craft of choice!! Thank you for sharing!!

    This is great! Thanks for sharing it!

    May be a dumb question, but haven’t dealt much with felt… my front door doesn’t have much of an overhang above it… how does felt hold up/do outside with weather? I’m in VA where we get all 4 seasons. Thanks again!

    Where did you find the foam wreath? I’ve gone to Michael’s and Joann’s, and neither have them! I really want to make this cute project. Thanks :)

    This was my first ever Valentine’s wreath to make, and I LOVE how it turned out. I was able to find everything I needed at Hobby Lobby. Unfortunately I had to hand cut each circle, but crafting during nap time for a few days I was able to finish it.

    Thanks for the cute idea!

    I saw this last night on Pinterest and loved it. I don’t usually decorate for Valentine’s Day but this was doable. Let me say, this took WAY longer than anticipated. I cut the circles by hand which was tough. I found my heart and felt at Joann’s. I used 3″ circles (wide mouthed wine glass as a template) and used about 180 circles to cover it. I had a yard of felt and used about 30″ of it. Yes, once the circles are cut it’s easy and fun, but cutting the circles got old. In the end though, it’s a great looking wreath and I’m proud of it. Thanks for the post!

    Hello! I love this wreath and made it earlier this year (January) while we were “snowed in” (Portland, OR doesn’t react very well to snow). It was a fantastic addition to my Valentine’s Day decorations. Others loved it, too, and asked if they might pay me to make them one. I haven’t agreed yet but finally got around to thinking about it, and wanted to check with you on your thoughts. I would of course, tell them where I got the idea!
