Valentine Wreath

Valentine's Day is a little less than a month away, so I thought I would sneak in a little Valentine wreath tutorial among my New Years Revamp projects!


Technically, you can consider this wreath a little New Years revamp of its own. If these pom-poms look familiar to you, it's because they were previously ornaments on my Christmas tree!

I was wondering what I was going to do with them next as I was taking them off the tree, when the idea hit me! I figured the red and blue color palette could still work for Valentine's Day, even if not entirely traditional. I may very well be the first person to ever repurpose Christmas ornaments for a Valentine's Day craft. ;) 

Here's what I did:


Supplies for Valentine Wreath


  • Heart shaped wreath form
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • 40-50 yarn pom-poms 
    • Check out my pom-pom tutorial if you're making them from scratch, and be sure to budget some time for making them - they take about 5 min. or so a piece to make
    • If you are lucky enough to have a bunch of pom-poms on hand you can make this wreath in 15 minutes!

How to Make the Wreath


1. Make your pom-poms. Pick a fun color combo - Valentine's Day doesn't have to be just red and pink!

2. Start gluing the pom-poms onto the wreath form with a generous dab of hot glue.


3. Continue around the wreath, somewhat randomly spacing the different colors. You don't want it to look too uniform, so position a couple of the same color next to each other in certain spots, and alternate colors in others.


Keep going until you fill in all the visible holes (or in my case, run out of pom-poms!). I magically had just enough to cover the wreath, but there was definitely an "oh crap" moment midway through when I thought I was only going to have enough for 2/3 of the wreath.... and after making all of these, I wasn't about to make more pom-poms!

By the way, I promise this is my last pom-pom craft.... for now ;)

  1. Love this wreath! What size did you use and where you find it. All I'm finding are 12" and smaller. I have my poms all made......they're just waiting for a home!
