Quick and Easy Heart Wreath
Sometimes we just want to make something quick and easy like this heart wreath, which also has a splash of winter fun.
I don’t do any decorating for Valentine’s Day at all, but I do love to make a new wreath for the front door each year
This year I’m all about simplifying my projects, which also means using what I already have in my stashes rather than buying more stuff.
I rarely buy craft items at craft stores because I snap them up for a fraction of the cost whenever I see them at thrift stores. I often find supplies still in their original packaging.
All the items for this heart wreath were thrifted.
You’ll find a complete list of what I used for this project near the end of this post.
This heart wreath is so quick to put together.
For this heart wreath all you have to do is wrap the ribbon around the wreath form, adding a dab of hot glue here and there… wherever you think it needs it.
I found this thrifted red ric rac trim in my stash.
When I see trims like this at a thrift store there’s usually a bunch in a bag for a dollar or two, so I always buy them.
You never know when they might come in handy, and they don’t take up a lot of room to store.
I love burlap, but for me it’s usually a backdrop… not the main attraction. Adding the red trim gives the heart wreath some extra zing.
While wrapping the trim around the wreath, just like with the burlap ribbon, add a dab of hot glue here and there.
Feather Boa Backdrop for Heart Wreath
I have a thing for feather boas. They’re so fun, and the white ones remind me of the lovely fluffy snow of winter… which we have tons of right now.
After wrapping the two white feather boas around the styrofoam wreath I tied the ends in place around the wreath form with invisible thread.
If you don’t like feather boas a white wintry woolly scarf would look fabulous too.
Here’s my almost finished burlap ribbon and red ric rac heart wreath.
To attach it to the feather boa wreath I used invisible thread again, in 3 places.
To finish it off it just needed a little red bow from my Christmas decorations, and a bit of the ric rac behind the bow to help define that heart shape.

Here’s my finished winter heart wreath in place on my front door. To hang it on the nail I just used a piece of white string tied around the boa wreath form.
I put the heart on an angle just for the fun of it. Why not?
I like things that are a bit unexpected.
Want the heart straight? That’s ok too.
By itself the heart wreath wouldn’t have made much of an impact because it was too small for the door.
The feather boas make for a lovely wintry backdrop.
So before you go buying new stuff for a project check out your stashes first to see what you already have that you can use.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
