Well here it goes my very first post!
I’m going to start off this blog with a look at how I made this Deco Mesh Valentines wreath for my mom.
17″ Heart wreath form: I purchased this one at Hobby Lobby. It was $9.99 and I used a 40% coupon.
Red deco mesh: I purchased this on clearance from Michaels for only .99!
Various heart ribbons and chevron ribbon from Michaels, they were 40% off. The gingham ribbon was from the JoAnn’s. It was on clearance for .99 it was from their Christmas ribbon selection.
The love banner was from Michaels for $1.99.
DIY TIP: If your like me, you love the after Christmas mark downs at the craft stores. However, don’t forget you can score some great deals on ribbon and other supplies that could very easily be used for your Valentine decor.
I forgot to take a pic of the wreath as I was putting on the deco mesh. If you’ve never worked with deco mesh before its super easy and there are tons of how to videos on youtube to help you get started. Once the deco mesh is on and fluffed to your liking you can start the really fun part of adding on all your decorations.
Here is a pic of the wreath as I was working on it. I always seem to work on my wreaths in the kitchen and use my pantry door as part of the work station. My pantry door serves as a great place to hang up my work so I can see where it needs tweaking.
As I was standing there looking at the wreath I felt like it needed a little more pizzaz. So the next day I headed over to JoAnn’s and was relieved to see they still had some small red Christmas ball ornaments that were marked down to….are you ready for this .99 a box!!! Whoot Whoot! I also found some red and white polka dot ribbon that I liked.
Here is a pic of the extra supplies that I added to finish off the wreath.
All said and done, I made this wreath for less than $20.00.
Here is the finished wreath for my mom’s door.
I hope you found this tutorial helpful or at least I hope I gave you some inspiration to go out an make your own DIY Valentine wreath for under $20.00.
