If this blog had a trademark, which I’m not sure it does, I think it would be the fact that I’m obsessed with wreaths. As my family will tell you, this is nothing new. I’ve ALWAYS loved them, and I believe they are the finishing touch to a welcoming porch and entry. I also love seasonal decor, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to feature a heart wreath on your front door. If you like neutral and natural door decor, this DIY heart wreath tutorial will walk you through the easy and quick steps.

Use the steps outlined below as guidelines…and before you buy anything, make sure to look through your “stash” to see if you can use something you already have. Let the wreath reflect your own personal style by changing the color of the little flowers or ribbon, and use any type of greenery you like.

DIY Heart Wreath Tutorial

  • Step 1: Start out with a heart-shaped grapevine wreath.
  • Step 2: Add a greenery garland of your choice. I re-used one I had that has moved from wreath to wreath since I got it. Use green florist wire to attach the garland to the wreath. It doesn’t matter if you start attaching the greenery at the top or the bottom.
  • Step 3: You will need four stems of little white flowers .
  • Using wire cutters, clip a few inches off the bottom of two stems. Stick them in each side of the wreath, at about the middle point. The fluttery top ends of the stems will overlap at the tip of the heart.

Cut the remaining two flower stems into 3 sections each. Stick these smaller stems into the top half of the heart. Tie a bow using white wide satin ribbon. Note: if you are using a floral bush, instead of stems, cut the stems of the bush apart with wire cutters, so you have lots of individual flowered stems. To get a natural and organic look, add curly willow or thin sticks. (Get the sticks from any craft store or forage them from your own yard!)

    Thank you so much.

  2. Eva Meyer says:

    Ann, can you tell me the size of your heart shaped wreath please. I bought some pretty flowers yesterday to make one, but will have to order the wreath itself. Thank you in advance.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Eva! My wreath measure about 15 inches across the fullest part of the heart. I’ve had my wreath for several years and originally got it at Hobby Lobby. I could not find it on their website so I provided an alternate link. I hope this helps!

  3. Love this wreath and all of those you’ve created in the past too!! I’m so grateful for your inspiration!!

  4. Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says:

    Beautiful wreath, Ann! It is so romantic looking with the heart shape and the wispy look to the florals.

  5. Thank you, Ann, for this beautiful post. I have been looking for just the right decoration for our front door to celebrate our daughter’s wedding. I’ve just found it in your gorgeous heart wreath!

    Ann, thank you for posting the tutorial for the heart wreath, I was wondering how you did it. Your photo of the tulips has just a tease of a photo frame I fell in love with! Did you make that from one of your vintage grain sacks? Do you ever have them listed in your shop? I’ve just discovered blog land a few months ago. Your blog is in my top three, along with Keeping It Cozy and Miss Mustard Seed. Thanks for sharing your home, life and creativity. By the way, you’ve posted some very good recipes!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Oh my gosh…to be in the same sentence as those two blogs is amazing. Thank you so much! The grain sack frame came from Pottery Barn a few years ago. I don’t think it’s anything I could make…a lot of specialized parts. Sometimes you can find items like this on Etsy. I know there are lamp shades made from real grain sacks there…thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice comment! ~Ann

  7. It’s so pretty, Ann.
    I haven’t had notice of your posts for some time. I’ll have to see what ‘s happened and then find a way to follow again. I’ve missed you!

      Hello! How good to hear from you…were you following my email? Sometimes, and I don’t know why, I lose subscribers. Just fill out the box again and you will move to the beginning of the list. Thank you and hope all is well. ~Ann

  8. Love your wreath Ann. Your home is so welcoming. I will be watching Downton Abby right along with you. Good thing we have more than one TV in our home because my husband is a big football fan. Have a good rest of the weekend. Yarlette

  9. I love your heart wreath Ann, I don’t see many heart wreaths around here but I’ll certainly be looking for one. The white flowers on it are adorable;

  10. Lovely wreath. I’ll be needing one for my new front door come Spring and I know exactly where to go to find the perfect one. I’ll see you tomorrow evening in Yorkshire.

  11. I think this is my favorite so far. It looks like you’re ready for spring.

  12. Your photography is beautiful.

  13. Ann-
    Beautiful wreath, I love how you can put anything together and it looks perfect.
    Good idea about the tulips..
    Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

  14. Ann, I was drooling over that wreath last night…it is amazing. I was hoping maybe it was for sale in your Etsy shop. Maybe I’ll give it a try. Love your home, your blog, your helpfulness, your wreaths and the tulips!


    1. Ann Drake says:

      Yes give it a try. You can do it!

  15. Ann, you have the best ideas for wreaths! Oh, to be so clever. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely wreath! I found you through Pinterest & realized we’re from the same part of the country…I’m a lil north of you, between the falcon & the rocket. Yes, winter is gray here, & cabin fever sets in quickly. I think that’s why crafting is so big! Love all of your linen bits on etsy, too.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thank you for saying hi…I have to admit it took me a minute to figure out the falcon/rocket hint! Very clever. Every day I hope to see the sun but most days it’s just not there. The days are getting longer though so there’s hope!

  17. Vicki Gauger says:

    Found you on Pinterest, Ann and love your blog and etsy shop. I love to sew and craft for the home and getting much inspiration from you :) I live north of Cinn and yes, we are having a doozy winter. All the season are wonderful tho! Thank you for your posting! Vicki

  18. Just beautiful! Is there anything you can’t do? :) Love that front door!
