Reversible Heart Baking Pan Wreath

I’m excited to show you the heart baking pan wreath that I made for Valentine’s Day.

I’m not really sure if I can call this a wreath though, but because I don’t know what else to call it I’m totally going with that.

Valentines Day will be here before we know it, and even though I don’t do a lot for it I do love hearts.

I know red is the usual colour for V-Day projects, but I think pink is pretty perfect too.

How to make a reversible baking pan heart wreath

Heart Baking Pan Wreath
All I needed for this project was a $1 thrifted vintage heart baking pan, a bunch of wine corks that I’ve been saving for years ( I never throw a wine cork away), and fuschia, light pink and cream coloured beading from my Christmas supplies.

I started on the bottom of the pan.

Adding garland to bottom of baking pan

Using my hot glue gun I simply glued the beading onto the pan from the outside in starting with the cream and then the light pink.

Finishing off with the fuschia in the middle. This was so easy, and probably took me about 15 minutes tops.

Adding corks inside of heart baking pan

Then I turned the baking pan over and stuffed it full of wine corks, as tight as I could get them, making sure they were all at about the same height.
Because they were so snug I didn’t even have to glue them in.

Painting the corks with ombre look

I grabbed some acrylic paints in different pinks and a fuschia-like red and lightly brushed the tops of the corks, blending a little as I went to give it an ombre sort of look.
Again, this side was super easy and only took about 10 or 15 minutes.

Hanging my reversible baking pan heart wreath

And here’s the beaded side hanging on my rustic framed chicken wire that held my vintage ornament tree at Christmas.
I added a burgundy millinery flower at the top and hung it with a simple wire ornament hanger

And here’s the cork side.
To hang this side up I glued a small piece of ribbon at the top of the baking pan, and I added a burgundy millinery flower at the top.

Which side do you like best?

I can’t decide, but I love that I can simply reverse it whenever the mood strikes me… like maybe every day. lol.

And if I ever want to take it apart that will be so easy to do.
The corks will just pop out, and the beading and millinery flowers can just be pulled off.
The hot glue holds on to the pan well, but it comes off quite nicely if needed.
I hope I’ve inspired you to get your pink on for Valentine’s Day.

Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…

keep on keepin’ on!

  1. So cute! I love the fact that it is reversible…Very versatile… I adore that chicken wire frame too….I may have to do that this summer…. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Wow! I love this!! But now I want to kick my own behind because I had a pair of these pans that had been my mom's and I got rid of them years ago…..before I learned about blogs!!! But I do have a heart shaped spring form pan that was hers……..I just might have to copy you, girl!!! Great job! Dona

    1. Thanks Dona! I see these pans a lot at the thrift stores for $1 in my neck of the woods, but a spring form version would probably work just fine. Copy away!

  3. Way to go on the dual-duty wreath! I can't believe those corks fit in and stayed without glue. I love both sides but probably the cork is my favorite. (Just because I know you drank a lot of yummy wine to make that happen! LOL!

      Thanks Florence! This was a fun project to make, and I still can’t decide what side I like best.

    Both of your projects are great.
    I could be your shadow…I’m recovering from Bronchitis & have a thing for making lists. What ever I do, I make a list. I think they make me feel more organized.

    1. Thanks so much Linda, and I totally agree with you about lists. They help me stay sane. lol. I hope you feel better soon. 🙂
