Use pink Christmas ornaments to make a beautiful Valentine’s Day Wreath that you will love for years to come. Keep an eye out for the after Christmas sales to get ornaments for a great price. This would also look great in red!
Hi Kenarry readers! I’m Michelle from Our Crafty Mom. You might remember the Stenciled Pillow I shared recently. Today I’m back with another quick and easy craft project to get you ready for Valentine’s Day decorating.
One thing I started doing a few years ago was picking up Christmas ornaments at the after Christmas sales. You can find some beautiful ones for just a few dollars. Think about using them for different Holidays. For example, you could buy pastel colors for Easter and a pretty green for St. Patrick’s Day.
Would you believe I found a large bag of vintage pink ornaments at the thrift store for $3? I may have done a little happy dance that day! You can also use plastic ornaments for this wreath if you’d like.
How To Make A Valentine’s Day Wreath Using Christmas Ornaments
The first thing I do when I start to decorate for a Holiday is change out the wreath on my front door. As this wreath uses glass ornaments, it is best to keep it inside. But, if you are using plastic, it would definitely be pretty on your front door.

Craft/DIY Tools Needed:
1. Wrap The Wreath Form With Ribbon
Start by adding a dab of hot glue to the start of the ribbon and wrap the entire wreath form. Be sure to cover the entire form. You don’t want any of the green showing. Isn’t this velvet ribbon just stunning?
2. Hot Glue The Ornaments Until The Wreath Form Is Covered
Hot glue each ornament going evenly around the wreath form. Start at the center top of the wreath and continue until the wreath form is covered with ornaments. Put on a fun television show and get ready to glue, glue, glue!
3. Check The Wreath To Make Sure It Is Even
At this point, hang the wreath and check to make sure the ornaments are even. The contrast of the magenta velvet ribbon with the pink ornaments is so pretty.
4. Add a Pretty Ribbon
Finish it off by adding a pretty ribbon for hanging. Again, you can purchase ribbon at a great price at the after Christmas sales! This gorgeous ribbon was 70% off!
See how easy that was? It is definitely a statement piece and can be used in so many different ways. This would also be pretty year round in a little girl’s bedroom or a shabby chic room.
