Light up your Valentine’s Day Wreath

Valentine’s Decorating

When he’s home hubs and I are just the two of us most of the time.  I think we’re complacent but Valentine’s isn’t  a big thing for us.  I get flowers, he gets some chocolates a couple of extra desserts and we share a bottle of wine.  Although its super toned down around here I still decided to make this little Valentines heart wreath.

That said I love looking at all the Valentine’s Day decoration ideas, the lace, the pinks, the cutest cupids, the Victorian styling all of it.    Pink is my favourite colour always has been, so checking out Valentine’s posts is a very good time.

This little craft was made from stuff I already had.  With Spring decor season on the way, I chose to be very frugal for Valentine’s and not buy anything special for it.  I had to fight off the dust bunnies in the storage room but I think it’s pretty awesome considering I made it from what I had on hand.

Supplies for the Valentine Wreath

This is what you will need to make one of your own.

A white coat hanger (dollar store)

White bling branches (christmas decor)

Pink ribbon, narrow and wide (dollar store)

Battery operated lights

This is so simple to make, I am sure when you saw it you knew exactly what I did to create it.


Cut a coat hanger or other wire you have and shape into a heart.

Wrap whatever bling you have around the heart frame.  I used some white bling swags for Christmas, but old beaded necklaces or dollar store beads or ribbon could be used as well.

My Christmas bling was white so I chose the pink ribbon for Valentines.

Place the battery pack for the lights at the bottom of the heart frame.  Attach it using tape. I used white electrical tape.

Wrap the wide ribbon around the battery pack to cover it, make sure that the battery pack switch is still accessible.  Finally tie the ribbon into a pretty bow.

Tweek it if necessary  Make sure all of the hangar is covered, even out the ribbon ends.  Check it for symmetry.

I hung this valentine on my bedroom mirror using a little suction cup.  Unfortunately, I was not able to get a nice picture in that room.   The winter days here have lengthened to almost 9 hours but the bedroom is still too dull for photographs.   I  think these pictures give you the general idea though.  The wreath is very pretty at night.

Enjoy the day.

  5. I love the lights added to your sweet and feminine Valentine Heart wreath! It looks festive, and (added bonus) you used inexpensive materials, some of which crafters would already have in their stash. Win-Win!

  9. Looks so pretty, Leanna. I love things that light up. Spontaneously brightens the mood. #HomeMattersParty

  10. So adorable and I like the addition of the lights. We don’t usually go all out for Valentine’s Day either because my husband’s birthday is the week before so I understand just keeping it low key. Thanks for sharing. #HomeMattersParty

  11. What a beautiful, sweet wreath! So soft and feminine ! I love it! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  12. Tweak if necessary :). That would be me. But beyond it being so delicate and beautiful, I do think I might be able to pull this one off. Unfortunately I would have to buy the lights.

  13. This is such a pretty little heart craft. I like how you used light up branches, I need to find some of those for myself. I have some tiny fairy lights, maybe those would work.
    Thanks for sharing your Valentine’s Day idea at the #HomeMattersParty this week.

  14. This is so elegant. Love anything with sparkle and lights.

  15. This is the cutest heart Leanna, I love love love the idea of wrapping the lights around it and of course the white with pink overall look! So beautiful!

  16. That is so clever and cute, Leanna.

    How do I find the Valentine crafts for children that you mentioned in another post? I haven’t been able to access it. I was really curious to now if I could do any of the projects with my grandsons.

  17. Leanna, The heart is so pretty. I love how it is so delicate. I would be inclined to keep it up way longer than Valentine’s Day.

      Hi Debra:

      I will leave it up in the girls guest room for a little bit. It will be sparkly and they adore sparkly anything. I believe its genetic.

      Thanks for the comment.

  18. Leanna what a great idea. It looks just like mine but I went with twine instead. As luck would have it I have a lights with battery pack. I could try that out it looks so cute. Thanks for the inspiration. When it is dead winter how long are your days?

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      The shortest day of the year is Dec 21st, we get 7.5 hours of daylight in Edmonton, it lengthens about two minutes a day after that. But the sun is so low on the horizon that the angle of the sunshine is very different than in the summer.

      Thank you for the comment. I am sure I saw your heart as well, but I need to go back and look again.

      Have a great week. Leanna

  19. Very cute, Leanna! Valentine’s Day is pretty toned down around here too – we don’t even do the chocolates and flowers. I prefer to do celebrate throughout the year. Your cute heart could be used year-round in a bedroom, little girl’s room or above the guest table at a wedding.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Great idea Marie, I will put it on the mirror in the guest room for the little ones.

      You could make it larger for at a wedding without much effort. Add another coat hanger and thats about the only difference.

      Thanks for commenting. Leanna
