I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: little things are just plans Nice.

These mini Valentine’s Day wreaths are no exception – they’re quick and easy to make, and they look great wherever you put them.

Although I’m obviously partial to hanging them around the neck of animal figurines you may have around the house.

Valentine’s Day crafts to make together

Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily my favorite holiday but it sure is a fun day to craft!

Whether you’re making Valentine’s Day decor, gifts for someone you love, or just a Valentine’s Day class, it’s a beautiful time of year to get creative.

I’ve taken the time to link some of the best stuff (IMO) from our Valentine’s Day library below! Make sure to pin your favorites so you can find them again easily.

And if that’s not enough for you, you can also snack on conversation heart popcorn or Valentine’s Day rice crispy treats while you get crafty!

Supplies you’ll need

Small wooden hearts. These are few Wooden hearts Very fun to make; I’ve had a stock of them for over a decade and used them in many different ways.

Red kraft paint. that Craft acrylic paint Perfect for this project. It glides on wood well and produces a beautiful, saturated color.

paint brush. I keep the brushes from this group On hand to use in drawing projects for me and the kids.

Crazy glue or glue gun. I used Krazy Glue in these Valentine’s Day wreaths (This formula Great on wood and dries quickly). If you don’t have it on hand, a Glue gun It will work too.

Ribbon or rope. I had some gold thread leftover from Christmas, but this would be beautiful with any ribbon you like!

How to make mini Valentine’s Day wreaths

  1. Start by determining how many wooden hearts you will need in your wreath (or multiple wreaths). I made two, one with mostly red hearts and one with mostly natural wood hearts.
  2. Paint the front of any wooden hearts you like. We feature red here, but pick your favorite color and go for it!
  3. Once the paint is dry, apply the bottom layer of hearts in the size and shape of your wreath. Each wreath will have two layers of hearts. In the bottom layer we have 11 hearts and in the top layer we have 9 hearts.
  4. Once the bottom layer is in place, apply a small amount of glue to the back of another heart and place it over the two bottom layer hearts. You will continue to use the hearts on the top layer to hold the hearts on the bottom layer in place, overlapping them so they stick together.
  5. If you want to make a wreath like ours, adhere one unpainted heart to the top layer of your wreath as an accent. Likewise, you can make a wreath out of plain wooden hearts with a painted one.
  6. Allow all glue to dry and set.
  7. Glue a small length of rope or ribbon to the back of the wreaths to hang them. You can also commit to a Pin again Alternatively, to make a wearable wreath.

How to use your Valentine’s Day wreaths

I even sprinkled a few around our house as decoration!

They look so pretty when hung from cabinet knobs, around the neck of a bottle, or hung in front of a mirror.

You can also give these gifts around the neck of a wine bottle – it’s so much fun!

Alternatively, simply stick them to the front of your Valentine’s Day card with a little washi tape and they’ll make a beautiful, thoughtful handmade gift.

I listen! xoxo
