How to Make a Valentine’s Day Ribbon Wreath

What you’ll need:

You can see in the above photo, that I started by taking 2 pieces of floral wire to make my heart shape.  I attached them together with floral tape, but you could twist them together.  I was too lazy to walk downstairs to the garage to find pliers to twist them with, so the tape worked just fine.

Next, I cut my ribbon into 12″ long strips.  You can cut them longer, or shorter, if you so desire.  This length seemed to work best to tie the ribbon on, because of the type I used.  If you were using regular satin ribbon, you could probably get away with cutting them shorter.

Start tying on your ribbons using a lark’s head knot (thanks to my friend Mike for teaching me the proper name).  You can see in the pictures just how I did that.  Start by folding your ribbon in half, then feed the loose ends through the loop around the wire and pull tight.  Voila!

Ribbon Tying Steps

You can do one knot, or repeat the steps to make it a double.  With my tulle ribbon I found the double knot helped keep it from coming undone.  Again, it will depend on what ribbon you use.

Just continue going around the wire, until it is all covered.  This is where your patience will come in handy.  Of course, in true Amanda fashion, I had to make this way more complicated than it needed to be.  First off, I didn’t have enough white ribbon to make the pattern around the entire heart, so I went back in and added the gold ribbon.  Of course, then I didn’t have enough gold ribbon to go all the way around.  SO, I did an alternating pattern with the white and gold.  Oh well, I’m happy with how it turned out.

Since it is so light weight, hanging it on the front door isn’t exactly appropriate.  Not only that, but I don’t think my husband would enjoy seeing this plastered on our front door.  It is just a tad kitschy to parade on the front door.

Instead, I did the next best thing–hung it on the stair case so he sees it when he first walks in!  Yes, he loves me.

Not too shabby for a FREE little craft, I’d say!

About how big did you make your heart? And could you estimate how much ribbon you used? I'm thinking of making several of these for the ladies I visit with Meals on Wheels.

Heather, I'd estimate that the heart was about 12" at the widest part (sorry I actually gave mine to a friend so I can't measure it). And as for the ribbon I used probably around 15 yards (yikes!) BUT you could cut the strips shorter if you wanted, it would change the look of the wreath slightly, but would save on the ribbon. Also making a smaller version of the heart would save on ribbon as well since it wouldn't take as much to cover it. A 6" heart would still be pretty and you could make two wreaths with the same amount of ribbon. I hope that helps!
