DIY Heart Wreath : Valentine’s Day Decor

DIY Heart Wreath Ideas featuring one heart wreath, two ways. Easy and fun Valentine’s Day decor ideas for your front door!

heart wreath with pink bow valentines day decor

One of the things I love most in the crafting world is ribbon. I decorate with it all the time…in every season. I think it has incredible personality and there is nothing that makes me happier than a perfectly tied bow. When I saw this wide grosgrain ribbon in this fabulous shade of pink, there was no doubt in my mind it would end up on a wreath. Which led me to digging out my old heart wreath and putting together some DIY heart wreath ideas for you.

Valentine’s Day Decor

First up is a heart wreath that is neutral and light. It pops right off our navy door and is super easy to assemble. Click the link below for the easy tutorial.

The second idea uses that incredible bolt of pink ribbon and has a more traditional, Valentine’s Day decor feel to it. I used the same heart wreath featured in the above tutorial, and left the greenery right on it. No need to completely reinvent the wheel if you don’t have to!

All the craft stores have their spring flowers in stock now and there is so much to choose from. I ended up with what I think are cherry blossoms. (Pictured above.) I cut the flower bush apart and had several separate little branches. (Pictured below.)

I stuck the cherry blossoms in the wreath, four on each side and added some twigs at the bottom point. Next was the bow. Here is my tutorial on How To Make A Perfect Bow. I wired the bow on the top of the heart and that’s it.

Once you make the investment in a wreath and greenery, it’s very easy to switch it up for the different seasons.  I listed a source for heart grapevine wreaths at the end. Heart wreaths can be hard to find, but don’t let that stop you! This tutorial could be easily adapted to a round wreath and it would be beautiful.

  3. Monique Marie says:

    Thank you! I love this post. You just sending the gorgeous over to me.

  4. Hi Ann! What color blue is your front door? I love all you posts! Thank you!
    Ann

  5. Your wreath is beautiful, Ann! Is that grosgrain ribbon, though? I thought grosgrain ribbon had the little raised bumpy stripes on it. The bow in the photo looks shiny and silky. Could yours be more like a taffeta or something? I am going to go to the craft store today and see what I can find. I need a Valentine wreath for our front door. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Tina…yes, it is grosgrain ribbon. I just didn’t capture it in the photographs. Satin ribbon would work too and look beautiful. Thank you!

  6. Betty Lou says:

    Ann, I love the way you make easy seems so elegant.

  7. Those wreaths are both beautiful but I especially love the simpler one. Looks so pretty on your navy door. What a great idea for February without looking too over the top Valentine’s Day.

  8. I love everything about this wreath. Beautiful. I especially like how you added the branches at the bottom. I had sworn off wreaths on my door because of birds nesting in them(and flying into the house when the door opened🤭.) However I’m going to make this one. Maybe I’ll just hang it on the inside of the door.😀

  9. Nana Diana says:

    Love a heart shaped wreath, Ann, and you have dressed this one up beautifully. I love the delicate look of it with the flowers.
    Have a great weekend- xo Diana

  10. So pretty! I love On Sutton Place–so classy!

  11. Now that says sweetheart to me. Dainty, earthy, so darn pretty. Pinned.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thanks for stopping by Bliss!!!

  12. My friend and I have looked everywhere for the grapevine heart wreath like yours. We can’t find it any where, Michaels, Hobby Lobby and on line. Where can we get one?

  13. Susie Coppotelli says:

    Love your site…best one I have found..wonderful ideas and some many helpful hints..Thank you so much for sharing all your great ideas..the patterns and everything..

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thank you so much Susie…I’m glad you found me!

  14. Oh, how pretty, Ann! I love grapevine, it’s so wispy! You have the right touch of flowers. Just love this!

  15. I love this wreath each way you made it. I would have trouble taking it apart each time.

  16. Shirley Arocho says:

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I love, love, love this wreath! Thanks for sharing! xx

  17. Kathleen G says:

    I love how you make your wreaths and bows. With the navy color door as a backdrop against the colorful variations of pink is gorgeous! Kathleen in Az

  18. Pamela Gordon says:

    Hi Anne. Your wreath is really pretty and an inspiration for February and the month of Valentines Day even if its still wintry. We had 3 huge storms last week and another coming tomorrow. Needless to say I’m starting to look for some spring ideas to cheer me up. Have a great week.
    Pam

  19. Connie Compton says:

    I love the wreath, flowers and bow – just perfect! My front door is painted
    Persimmon so can’t have pink (though I love it). I’ll just use another color, maybe white like you used on the blue door.

  20. Marlene Stephenson says:

    That heart wreath is beautiful and it really would put me in the mood for spring,thanks.

  21. Ann, I discovered your site around the 8th of January, and I am addicted. When I first saw your blue front door I thought that it looked so much like mine. When I read further that it was Naval by S.W. I knew we were kindred spirits. Since I am reading your archive pages daily, I am convinced it is true. We have so much in common . . . antique shopping, small adorable dogs, hydrangeas, making a house a home a/k/a decorating, DIY, bargains, Downton Abbey. I could go on and on. I love your posts. I am writing from Northern Illinois. We are in the midst of a blizzard, have had over a foot of snow and it is still coming. The power has gone off twice so fingers crossed since it is Super Bowl Sunday. All the best Ann. I adore On Sutton Place.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thank you Lynn…so much. Welcome to On Sutton Place. We have not lost power yet and my fingers are crossed. I’m more worried about Downton Abbey tonight than the Super Bowl! Thank you for the lovely comment…Warm Regards, Ann

  22. Very pretty…so delicate and dainty. Love it! Thanks for the inspiration.
    Stay safe in the storm.

  23. Ann hubble says:

    Ann, that beautiful cherry blossom wreath was just lovely. Thank you for the excellent tutorial! I LOVE your blog !!!!

  24. Debbie Lorson says:

    Loved your wreath. Everything you do is to perfection! Still love your blog and be safe
    in the snow.

  25. Wow, your wreathes get progressively better. The pink on the navy door is striking. I love your blog and am so glad I found you. You truly inspire me.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thank you Niki! I’m glad you found me too. :)

  26. Kate Grob says:

    Very nice…the pink tulips are the incentive I needed to make a trip to the store b4 the storm moves east to North Salem, NY! Thanks Ann!

  27. Very pretty wreath. It looks like you have fine leafed greenery, it almost looks like rosemary, on top of the grapevine branches, do you? If so what is that?
    Thank you for all the ideas!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Laura! On top of the wreath is a garland that actually does sort of look like Rosemary. I got it at Hobby Lobby. They have a whole aisle of different kinds. Thank you for stopping by!

  28. What sweet ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  29. Penny @ The Comforts of Home says:

    Your wreath is beautiful! I have some round grapevine wreaths. I need to get out to the craft store! Stay safe in the snow storm!

  30. Peggy Zortman says:

    Charming! Pink is one of my favorites and when I first saw this I thought of my pinks in my garden. They have that flyaway green leaves and stems. I love the look. I am going to have to see if I can find something similar. Spring seems far away this morning with the wind and cold temperatures we have here.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I know what you mean about spring feeling far away. Treat yourself to some pink tulips from the grocery! They really do help.

  31. Ellie LaJuett says:

    Thanks ! The wreath is lovely and even I can make that bow! Stay warm and safe!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Ellie! Of course you can make that bow…thank you for your lovely Facebook comments and for visiting here. You stay safe too…

  32. So pretty Ann, I love the bright pink:) I think this one is my favorite so far. We are also getting the snow last night it was 10-12 but has changed to 16 inches now. My hubby is home so I hope no power loss either but will run off the generator if it happens. Keep warm and safe today.

  33. Betty Lou says:

    I guess this means I better take my Christmas wreath down and get busy with Valentines and spring. Today for Super Bowl I am making your baked beans recipe to go along with the barbeque spareribs and potato salad. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas. Today I am celebrating my 80th birthday, all over the country people are having Super Bowl parties but I think they are all just celebrating my birthday. Lol

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Happy Birthday Betty Lou! Your Super Bowl meal sounds amazing…and truth be told I just took down my Christmas wreath when I put this one up!

  34. Laura Ingalls Gunn says:

    This is so lovely. I love the touches of pink!

  35. Jennifer @ Town and Country Living says:

    Ann, you always have such a knack for making everything beautiful. Love that dark pink against the blue door!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      What a lovely thing to say Jennifer…and I could say the exact same thing to you!

  36. Oh my – perfect. Here in IN the same storm is raging. It is a gorgeous winter wonderland but I am going to spend the day putting away all snowmen etc. and bringing in Valentines and a hint of spring. Your tutorial is just what I needed today. The wreath will have to wait til Tuesday as it will take that long to dig out and head to Hobby Lobby. Thanks for also sharing how the wreath and door have changed. Both are inspiring!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Nancy…yes stay in and safe! Thank you for the sweet comment ~ Ann

  37. How very pretty! It looks so fresh & welcomes Spring.
    I too awoke to many inches (and still snowing) and blowing snow in IA.
    Stay warm & safe Ann!

  38. Ann, keep warm. Just heard on the radio 5-8 inches of snow to fall this evening. I guess I will have grandchildren here tomorrow. Your pink ribbon is the perfect pink and I will be searching for a heart wreath after this Ohio snow storm ends. Did you know the blonde actress on Downtown Abbey, the niece staying with the family, is Disney’s Cinderella in the same titled movie coming out in March? I can’t wait to take my granddaughter.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Oh she will make the perfect Cinderella…stay warm!

  39. Absolutely lovely wreath. I used to make them regularly. However, a major reconstruction update after a dreadful ice storm caused so much damage leads me to not hang anything on the new doors. You have inspired me to make a new one like this for inside. It is very nice. Just found your blog recently and look forward to each post, thank you.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Yes this type of wreath is perfect for indoor too…and welcome to On Sutton Place!

  40. Hi Anne-
    Your wreaths are lovely~
    It looks so pretty on your front door.
    And it looks like spring~ not that I’m wishing my life to go by so fast, but I wish it was spring.
    We are going to have the pleasure of 10+” in upstate NY area.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love how the snow looks, but I find myself hibernating too long in the winter.
    There is just so many times you can rearrange you home.

    Stay warm
    Rose

  41. I love the wreaths you make. I think I will head to the craft store today before the snow hits here. (Baltimore) I always struggle with where to place my wreaths – we have a beautiful storm door on our front door that I LOVE to keep open to let in the light. We have a colonial style home so there is no covered porch or even covered entry. Would you put a wreath on the storm door exposed to the weather or in between the storm door and front door? The afternoon sun hits the front door and really heats it up – I have had some wreaths get a bit “melted” looking. Suggestions?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I had a storm door at my first house and put a wreath in between the main door and the storm door. I had to be creative because I didn’t have much depth. You could hang a wreath on the storm door with a wreath hanger. I have grapevine wreaths with plain greenery on my shed doors. They get all sorts of weather and have done very well. Good luck!

  42. I would love to make this wreath and hope it turns out half as good as yours :) Right now, I have my lavender filled hearts that you made on my front and back doors. When the sun warms them, I catch a hint of lavender when I come in. Smells heavenly! Stay warm and safe sweet Ann!!!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Deni…thank you for stopping by! So far we are both safe and warm. Enjoy your Sunday!
