I usually do not decorate for Valentine’s Day, but this year I decided to put a few things out. Dollar Tree has these beautiful peachy pink colors and I just fell in love when I saw them! They look so delicate and romantic. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

After elementary school, I never really liked Valentine’s Day anymore. However, when I was in elementary school I loved it. I loved decorating my brown paper bag with lots of pink and red hearts and covering them in glitter.

The Valentine’s Party would start after lunch, with homemade cookies and cakes and punch. The kids would walk around the room placing their Valentine’s in all the handmade bags. However, we weren’t allowed to go through our Valentine’s until we got home.

As soon as I walked in the door after school I would dump my Valentine’s bag out on the living room floor. I loved checking each card and seeing who signed it. The cards with the candy were always the best. I still have a few of those Valentine’s cards from elementary school; most of them from my best friends.

Valentine’s Heart Wreath

This Valentine’s heart wreath is super easy to make, but it is very time-consuming. If you plan to make this wreath, give yourself at least 30 minutes or longer.

What you need:

This is what the heart-shaped wall decor looks like. It’s covered in red tinsel with the word “love” hot glued to it.

What you do:

The first thing I did was remove the “love” word from the heart. It’s very easy to take off because it’s just hot glued on. I put it aside in case I want to use it for a different project.

Then I started removing the tinsel, which is just wrapped back and forth across the heart and around little plastic pegs. It didn’t take very long at all to remove all of it.

Next, you’re going to start adding your flowers. As I mentioned above, I purchased roses from Dollar Tree. I used about 15 roses for the top and bottom of the Valentine’s heart wreath and about 20 for the middle.

The colors I chose were a cream color, a light peach color, and a darker peach color. I wanted to give my Valentine’s heart wreath an ombre look.

I popped all the roses off of their stems.

Now comes the time-consuming part of the Valentine’s heart wreath – hot gluing on all the flowers.

I started at the top part of the plastic wreath and worked my way down, placing the different colors on about 2 grids. Let me show you what I mean.

I placed the first flower at the dip in the plastic wreath, then I went up and around until I had two rows of flowers.

For the next layer, I used the light peachy pink roses. I also did 2 rows of these flowers.

On the last layer, I used the darker peach-colored roses.

If there were any holes between the flowers, I just hot glued the petal together to cover them up. This makes the wreath look fuller, I think.

Next, I added some cute burlap that I found at Dollar Tree to the back of my Valentine’s heart wreath so that I could hang it.

  1. I’ve never decorated for Valentines Day but your beautiful wreath has definitely inspired me!! Looking forward to your posts on the candles and flower box too!!!

  2. Well, I’d say you definitely elevated the look of that wreath! So pretty! I don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day but I always think I should. It’s a great excuse to go overboard with pink. ????

  3. How lovely! We don’t decorate, but lots of people wear red on Valentine’s Day in South Africa. People in stores also wish you a Happy Valentine’s which seemed a little strange to me at first, but actually it’s rather nice πŸ™‚

  6. Fabulous Michele! I will get myself to dollar tree to find the heart-shaped wreath. I have an idea for my front door for Valentine’s Day, but now I think I will also incorporate a few of your ideas into the finished product. I love the peachy roses. I have three Dollar Stores near me…all within fifteen minutes. Hopefully, I will be able to find these items.

    1. Thank you! You’re lucky with all those Dollar Trees so close. We only have one and the shelves have been bare lately. I hope you can find the wreath forms.

      1. The one I live nearest to is in a college town. We also have times when the store is so empty it looks ransacked. I’ll let you know if I find them.

  7. So pretty, I love the soft pink colors you picked too. I have a wooden heart I am going to add some pretty flowers to that has been sitting in my to do basket for a month now. One of these days I will get to it. I have to get to the fabric store to buy some tiny roses though.This came out great I love it, so romantic and Victorian looking too.

  8. You make this look so simple Michelle that even I might give this a try! Thank you for these instructions – what a beautiful wreath! xxx

  11. My mind is officially blown. Wow. Your creativity leaves me speechless. For you to walk in to Dollar Tree, see these items and envision this in your mind is nothing short of spectacular my friend. I absolutely love this piece.

    Like you, I’ve never put out special decorations for Valentine’s Day. This romantic and ethereal heart is divine though. I’d hang that here proudly. In agreement with you too – I think this decoration is perfect for lots of occasions and seasons. Amazing. All of it together looks show room ready! You are something else! πŸ˜€

I love to hear from you!
