How to Make Valentine Wreaths

I decided it would be fun to make Valentine wreaths with my children. This wreath cost less than $10 and took about thirty minutes from start to finish. I completed this Valentine Crafts for Kids project with my children both five and under so it is very versatile.

Then you will want to sew on the felt flowers. You can see how I made them, check out my felt flower pattern tutorial <—

You will want to place the thread through the flower. Than loop it around the hoop and through the tulle. Then I loop it through itself and pull. I do this several times to secure it.

    WOW.. that’s just lovely and even easy enough for smaller kids to do. My grand daughters love doing things like this.

  2. Jenny Q. says

    This is something I would love to do with my daughter. It looks so pretty! She loves doing crafting projects, so this is perfect for us to try.

  3. Shirley says

    How adorable! Looks easy enough to help any child make. And best of all, they can make it for their favorite gal – MOM!

  4. Vickie V says

    Great idea..so much you can do with tulle..we did something very similar to this but used very full boas for our Christmas wreath..it turned out fantastic and I got sooooo many complements..it was very elegant and cheap to do not to mention unique..I did mine in all white..and now using for Vday with red and pink accents..thanks..cute as can be.

  5. Pat Walker Pinkston says

    Cute.! Bet you could use that tulle on spools that’s about 6 inches wide. You see it a lot around Christmas. I’ve always had a problem trying to cut tulle straight.

  6. Susan Harp says

    So cute and crafty, a perfect project for kids on either a snow day or a rainy day. And the best part is that it would bring on a child’s creativity, something that seems to get lost these days in our world of electronics.

  7. Candice H says

    these are so cute and look so easy to make! And the felt roses are such a cute touch. I think I’d like these in a smaller size though, other than that they’re adorable!

  8. says

    What a beautiful wreath! And by the looks of it…ca be a fun project for the bigger kids to pitch in and help. Decorations have so much more meaning when they are made with love and with family.

  9. Kelly D says

    I don’t have many Valentine’s Day decorations, and I would love to work on this with my daughter,. it’s so pretty.

  19. Rhea Chladek says

    What a pretty and fun idea! I love seeing the creative things people make! (I’m no good at making these kinds of things myself…I will stick with the art form of putting words to paper, and leave the artsy/craftsy stuff to the “experts.”…like artisitc parents and children)!

    :) Rhea

  20. rebecca shockley says

    Great idea, in fact last year for Christmas I did almost the same thing. I used a Styrofoam plate and some ribbon and lace laying in the drawer. I only used the outer ring of the paper plate and then proceeded to wrap the ribbon/lace in a fashionable way around the entire rim until it was all white and red

  21. Lynn C. says

    I’ve always loved tulle, and now I know why. Nothing else has such a playful, delicate, elegant look for such a low price. I think I’ll start incorporating it into crafts, even my jewelry. Thanks for the inspiration, and happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family!

  22. Sacha Schroeder says

    This is adorable and looks like something my kids could really do. Thanks for sharing so many awesome crafts!

  23. Leona G says

    I love this idea. My grand-daughter is always wanting new toys and I told her we’re not buying new toys because we are going to start doing crafts together. She loves baking together and I know she will love this.

  24. Jody Arbogast says

    I think the Valentine Wreaths are Awesome! Good idea for kid’s. Thank you for showing us how to make one. Really cute!!

    Super cute! I don’t have kids, but I’d definitely consider making this for Valentine’s Day! I don’t know if I could figure out those felt flowers though…hahah

  29. Michele L. says

    This looks like it could be for anytime of year just as it is… If you wanted you could also fool around with other colors & decorations.

  30. Dorinna Wren says

    This looks awesome. I just showed my daughter and now we will be making these wreaths. Thank you for sharing. So cute

  31. Amanda Alvarado says

    This is so cute and I think even I could manage it! Although I think I would buy some pre-made flowers! LOL

  32. Laurie says

    I imagine the project is a lot easier than it looks. It would be really cute set up in a girl’s room with lots of feminine detail.

  33. Mary Fagans says

    We used to make these out of white or green trash bags for Christmas wreaths. I love the red color for Valentine’s Day!! If you think about it, you could make one for every holiday!! Thanks for the neat idea!!

  34. Ashley Trail says

    I am always looking for cheap , cute and easy crafts that are seasonal to do with the kids. Thank you for the great posts!

    My 12 year old Grand daughter is a crafter, she would love doing this I will have to print it for her to try.

    This is adorable! You make it seem so easy too! This is the perfect craft to make with the kids on a cold snowy day when the weather is too bad to go outside!

  37. M.Clark says

    This is a great craft, I love it. I have never heard of a Valentine wreath, it’s a nice change from the usual Valentine’s Day craft projects. Thank you for sharing this great post.

  38. Tyler Calder says

    This is lovely and seems fairly simple. I would use different colors of tulle if I were doing this myself. I don’t know why but red white and pink seems nice to me. Or use two colors of tulle and use the third to do the felt flower(s). Either way great idea!

  39. Michelle Salais says

    So adorbs! I love Valentines day. Everything about all the decorations and gifts always catches my eye because my favorite color is red.

    What a really cute idea. I really like how you did step-by-step instructions with photos. That really helps the creatively hindered like myself. This will be lots of fun to make with my daughters.

  46. Shannon Anderson says

    This looks like something that we could make with kids and give to others. The cost and time spent make this a great project for the family. Thank you for sharing with us.

Thank you so much for sharing this post, I’ll be sure to suggest this to my niece since she is coming over for Valentine’s weekend.

  49. Rachel brown hester says

    I would love to make one of these for my daughter’s room. It looks like something I could actually do ( I am craft challenged). I love tulle and how feminine and classy, yet how sassy it can be.

  50. says

    Love this wreath because it looks like it will be easy to do with my students.
    Every year my students make Valentines Day Cards for their loved ones out of various supplies that I bring into the classroom.

  51. Missy Sue Isaac says

    That is super cute!!! You make it look so easy but I am sure I would mess it all up if I tried to do it :) Maybe I will buy the supplies and just let the kids go at it! Thanks!!

  52. Melanie W. says

    Very cute. Since tulle is so see-through if you were worried about the hoop showing through, you could always paint the hoop first. However, with little kids, that has the probability of getting extremely messy very quickly. ;)

  53. Melisa Hennings says

    this is an awesome idea! Perfect for me to make with a 13 yr old who loves learning new things, she loves crafts and baking! time to get to work..so cute!!

  54. Dana Vargas says

    Wow this Valentine’s wreath is a great idea and so beautiful! This would be the perfect activity to do with my girls. I love that it’s easy enough for the little ones to do, and is economical while still turning out pretty. Thanks for sharing!

  55. Gwen B. says

    I didn’t like having to take down the Christmas wreath – it was so pretty – but I love the idea of making a Valentine’s Day wreath to take its place.

  56. Tara Liebing says

    This wreath is such a cute and fun idea!! The kids would have so much fun making their own, thanks for the idea!

  57. Kelly Tupick says

    This is a really good idea to do with the kids. I never would have thought of doing something like that. It is something i think they could do and have fun doing it too.

  58. Laurie Nykaza says

    This valentine wreath is so cute. I would see making it for my nieces to go in their hair as a little crown too its so cute.

  59. Christine Beasley says

    I like the idea, simple and easy for young children to do. I think though I would prefer a smaller hoop or ring for the foundation.

  60. Aimee T says

    I think what I like most about this idea is that it isn’t limited to Valentine’s Day. My daughter would cringe at the thought of making a “girlie” wreath but with a few changes, this could be a Christmas wreath!

  61. MARTHA says

    I believe everyone would enjoy having a colorful wreath like that on there door even inside on the wall I know I will make me many colorful ones ….TY

  62. kim j says

    So cute, I don’t have small children but I always think of certain people when I see kids crafts and share it with them. There are a few mom’s I will definatley show this to!

  63. Debbie says

    This is a nice craft project for kids to give to their mom or/and grandmother. Also, you could attach cut out felt hearts to the wreath.

  64. sylvia says

    what a great idea! you could make it with different colors for all the different holidays! i love crafting with my family.

  65. joanne major says

    This is adorable I think the granddaughters and I will make this during the super bowl seeing that we don’t like football and my husband and sons will be watching it

  66. Cynthia says

    I used to love crafting with my daughter. This is such a cute idea. Thanks for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you next week.

  67. Paula Ball says

    I am so excited about this wreath! I have all the materials on hand, and this will be the perfect craft to do with my young grand daughters.

  68. natalie parvis says

    This. I.s. Adorable. I made one for christmas and thanksgiving but i didn’t think about valentines!! Great idea!

  69. Janette Polivka says

    Another great creative way to keep kids away from technology and use their brains and get those creative juices flowing! lol Also something that we can do with them, because whether they admit it or not, they enjoy spending quality time with us! :)
