Need some brightness on your front door in the middle of a dreary winter? Perhaps your door has been bare since you took your Christmas wreath down and it need something new on it. Whatever the reason is, this pretty Argyle Valentine’s Day Yarn Wreath is the perfect solution! The gray/pink/red color combination is really a lovely one and it will certainly make you smile (and your neighbors jealous!) each day when you come home. This wreath is really pretty easy to make and will make February much better! Even if you aren’t a real Valentine’s Day fan, like me, this wreath will still be a pretty accessory to your door each year.
What you’ll need:
straw or styrofoam wreath
red and pink felt
pink (or red) ribbon to hang
scissors, hot glue gun
Glue one end of your yarn to the back of your wreath. If you are using a straw one, leave the plastic wrapping on.
Keep wrapping around and around and around until the entire wreath is covered and shows none of the wreath through it. Yes, this takes a while, but I like to do it at night when the kids are in bed with a glass of wine and some Downton Abbey.
Once it’s completely wrapped, glue the end onto the back and then you can make your hearts.
Cut your hearts, I did 6 pink and 6 red, even though it’s kind of hard to see that in the picture. Arrange them on the wreath so that they are spaced evenly and alternate in color.
Glue them on with the hot glue and let them dry.
To make the argyle design, glue one end of yarn onto the back of the wreath and wrap it around carefully crossing over each heart in one direction, and then glue the end down. Do that same thing again with another piece of yarn and wrap it in the opposite direction, crossing over each heart to make an X.
Tie some ribbon to the top so you can hang it. I choose to use this pink with white polka dots.
