DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath using a Wood Round

Make your own one of a kind DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath this year. It’s one of those perfect Valentine’s Day crafts that you can use for years to come.

Instead of a traditional floral wreath, I made a DIY Valentine’s Day wreath using a wood round this year. Wood rounds continue to be a popular option for wall decor. Plus – they are adorable hanging on your front door.

With so many DIY Valentine wreaths out there, I wanted to make a cute wreath that was a little different than traditional wreaths sold in stores. Most Valentine’s wreath options are heart wreaths or are circular wreaths made of florals, conversation hearts, deco mesh, grapevine wreath form base, etc.

Wood rounds are a great way to create a unique wreath. They make the perfect base for wreaths. You can staple or hot glue decorations onto them to make a beautiful wreath or wall decor.

Just add some sort of hook to the back of the wreath so that it can be placed on a door hanger, hook, or nail. Some already come with something on the back to hang the wreath (mine from Michael’s did).

Creating your own Valentine’s day decorations is such a fun way to celebrate the season of love. You get to make something that is one of a kind and save money at the same time.

Customize your Wreaths

Since you can customize the stencil design, you have endless options when it comes to personalizing the wreath to make it your own. But, if you like the design on my wreath, you can get it for free.

In addition, you could use wooden hearts instead of wood rounds to create your own DIY Valentine wreath. Or, you could add faux flowers instead of a large bow at the top or you could incorporate flowers with your bow at the top of the wreath.

Where Do I Get the Free SVG for the Wreath?

Host a Galentine’s Day DIY Decor Party

I love craft nights with friends. Making Valentine’s Day wreaths would be the perfect way to spend an evening crafting. Each attendee can make their own wreath using different colors, their choice of greenery, and even their own design.

If your wood rounds are going to have a base color (or base color with a solid color stripe), I suggest painting the base colors ahead of time so all that needs to be done is stenciling on the design, creating the ribbon, and attaching the ribbon and greenery.

What Level of Crafter Do You Need to be for this DIY Valentine’s Day Decor?

All of the steps aren’t necessarily for all skill levels. If you. are unfamiliar with using a craft cutting machine, this will be a more difficult task. If someone can make the stencil for you (or if you can purchase a premade one), you don’t need to be an experienced crafter to complete the remaining steps to make a wreath yourself.

Where Can I Buy the Required Materials for the Valentines Day Wreath

You can get the wood rounds at Amazon, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby. The other materials (such as greenery and ribbon) can be purchased at craft stores or your local dollar store.

Can I Use Vinyl Instead of Painting the Design on the Wood Round?

Yes! You can use permanent vinyl for your design instead of painting it on.
