Homemade Valentine Decorations
Valentine’s day is a fun holiday that lets you go over the top with pink and red decor. From hearts to roses, Valentine decorations are a welcoming sight during the dreary winter months when the winter blues tend to creep in.
Let your family think that cupid was hard at work by making your own homemade valentine decorations. These mini-wreaths for your kitchen cabinets are so simple. Don’t forget to let the kids help! This Valentine craft is super easy and cheap. That is my kind of craft 😉
I have to admit, I cheated with this one. If you saw my gorgeous little mini-wreaths with orange slices at Christmas time, then these may look familiar. That is because they are the same wreath. Always reuse what you can. Your budget will thank you.
DIY Valentine Mini Wreaths
I fell in love with my mini-wreaths for the kitchen cabinets at Christmas time. I loved them so much that I didn’t want to take them down. They really brought out my white kitchen cabinets. However, I didn’t want to be “that person” that has Christmas decor up all year. With Valentine’s day approaching, I decided to make the ol’ switcheroo.
First I removed all the dried orange slices, which still smelled heavenly by the way. Then, I just attached the pink and red wooden hearts. The wooden hearts were part of a garland and even had clothes pins attached to the back. So it was really easy to just remove the orange slice and snap the heart on.
I would put a link to the garland, however, I found it on Target’s discount aisle. If you are unable to find the wooden heart garland at Target, then gluing some felt hearts on will look just as cute. I will include some heart alternatives below.
The wreaths are super simple to make. Just twist the garland tie around to make a perfectly shaped mini-wreath. Here is video tutorial of the original Christmas wreaths.
I replaced the cream burlap that I had used on my Christmas wreaths with a pretty pink burlap on all but one mini-wreath. I like to make my center cabinet stand out, so I used red burlap and added three hearts. When hanging, just tape the ribbon to the inside of your cabinet.
These cute DIY Valentine wreaths for the kitchen really make my white cabinets pop. I love them! Can I get away with leaving them up all year? What am I saying, I can just add shamrocks after Valentine’s day and be ready for St. Paddys! These little budget-friendly wreaths can easily be customized for any holiday, while keeping my kitchen festive.
