You know I like simple crafts, the heart shape is made with a wire cloth hanger, super easy.

I used eucalyptus branches, DIY paper flowers, and a few Gypsophila flowers to make the wreath.

I like how the heart wreath turns out with a nice spring feeling.

wire cloth hanger heart

Fold the wire cloth hanger to give it a heart shape. Start by making the tip heart with the lower part of the hanger, then rounded each side of the hook.

I only used my hands and it works fine, but you can also use pliers.

Attach the eucalyptus branches on the heart shape by wrapping small pieces of wire around. You can overlay multiple branches for a better result.

How cute does the valentine heart wreath look already? Now let’s add some flowers.

I made them with paper, but you can also add some dried or artificial flowers.

paper flower

Grab The FREE flower template in my resource library  (Click here to get in  >>>> FREE LIBRARY ACCESS) and print on a colored sheet of your choice.

I choose pink and white, but any pastel color will work great to make these paper flowers.

The flower is made in three parts. Cut the largest corolla following the line. Wrap the petals around a paintbrush or a small dowel.

Glue the flap on the center of the flower. Repeat the same steps to make the other two corollas that will form the flower.

gluing paper flower

Take the three corollas and glue them together by putting a little glue in the center between each.

Glue a pom poms to make the flower center.

As you will notice in the last pictures, I changes my mind and decided to use wooden beards to make the flower center. Choose what works best for you.

Use a glue gun to fix the flowers on the wreath. I made three paper flowers and added some Gypsophila flowers to complete the wreath.
