Easy Bead Garland Heart Wreath

This Valentine’s Day heart wreath is very easy to make, using simple supplies that I had on hand.

In my last post I shared my pink and sparkly wreath that I also made from a heart shaped hanger. You can see that here.

I wanted to see what else I could come up with for the same wire heart shape so I raided my Christmas decorations and found a bunch of strands of red bead garland.

I spray painted the hanger red just in case it might be visible through the beads.

Then I simply wrapped the garland around the heart, keeping it tight as I went. I put a bit of hot glue at the beginning to hold the garland in place.

Here it is after one strand of nine foot garland. Again to hold the garland in place I put a dab of hot glue at the end.

And I just kept wrapping.

Here it is wrapped with two nine foot garlands.

I decided that I wanted to make it wider to match the top middle section so I wrapped it with another layer using one strand of twelve foot garland.

And it’s done.

You could leave it plain like this…

or add a simple lace bow.

It really couldn’t be easier.

  1. Welcome back, Tuula! I missed you! This is so beautiful and unique! Without your instructions it looks very intricate and difficult to make. I like the added lace ribbon . . . makes it very romantic, too!

  2. That is gorgeous! Gotta love the red from Christmas….it just keeps on giving!

  3. Tuula I really love that and you could change that up for so many holidays with a few wire tools. I think I want to try an egg for easter.

  4. Well of course you came back from your cruise and made a fabulous wreath!! I love it and I think the bow sets it off! Now I want a cruise!

  5. Tuula, you're a Thrifty lady, just like me 😉 love the up cycle for the hanger bent into a heart. That's what I used for my pom pom heart wreath. Why buy when you can use what you already have 😉

  6. I thought at first you had strung all the beads on! Great idea using the garland beads. Hope the cruise was fun.

  7. Well you did it again Miss Tuula – LOVING it – ( might be my favorite yet ! )
    Our cruise got delayed till the fall – how was yours?
