Heart Argyle Valentine’s Wreath {tutorial}

 Hello there!!

Did you L.O.V.E. the week of giveaways?! Me too. If you haven’t entered yet, you still have time!

Thanks to all of the FABULOUS sponsors for their fun prizes.

Today I am going to share the cutest “pinspired” Valentine’s wreath I made last week with my cute friend, Michelle from Modern Martha Michelle.  I tried tracking down the direct link for the similar wreath on Etsy to give the creator credit, but had no luck. It looks like the Etsy shop is closed and the link is ‘dead.’ If you happen to know the shop or creator of the original, let me know in the comments so I can link back to them for inspiring this craft! : )

Anyway, back to the tutorial for this wreath…

Adorbs, right?!

{Supplies}

wreath form

yarn

felt (2 colors)

heart template

marker or fabric pen

scissors

hot glue & gun

{Tutorial}

1. Wrap your wreath with yarn and tie end of yarn in a knot or secure the end with hot glue.

2. Trace your heart template on the felt and cut the hearts out. (I used 16 hearts or 8 of each color.)

3. Hot glue the hearts around the front of the wreath, in an upside down/right-side up pattern.

4. Hot glue the end of a new piece of yarn to the back of the wreath and wrap around the wreath, crossing over each of the felt hearts on the diagonal. (Don’t be too picky or you’ll be there all day. Am I right, or am I right Michelle?) When you get all the way around your wreath, cut the yarn and glue the end to the back of your wreath with hot glue.

5.  Repeat step 4, but cross of the felt hearts along the other diagonal, forming a “X” over each heart. (You can manipulate the yarn “X’s” just by slightly moving the pieces of yarn once the wrapping/gluing is complete.)

6. Hang on your door, place on a mantle, or hang from a wreath post for all to admire. (I used a piece of ribbon to hang it from my front door.)

Not only am I happy how the wreath turned out, but I had so much fun crafting with Michelle while our kids played (again).

Proof I had fun…

Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Kara!! I love it! I have always been a fan of Argyle and truly never thought to use a heart in place of the diamond! My linky party will be up tonight for tomorrow. Check it out if you would like to link this up. SweetTalkin’ Sunday!!

  3. So Cute. I’m totally think I need to make a new Wreath now… :)
    I’d love it if you’d link this up to my Pinterest inspired “Pinned it, Made it!” Party :)http://findingmywayintexas.blogspot.com/2012/01/pinned-it-made-it-2.html

  4. Such a cute wreath! I love the argyle look! Fun, fun!

  6. That’s SO CUTE!! I want one!

  7. Super cute wreath… it has been pinned also :)

  9. In love with that wreath! So fantastic. :)

  10. So Darling! I love it! I want one. Maybe I’ll make one today. Who REALLY cares if I clean the house or do the laundry? ;)

  11. I. LOVE. ARGYLE! Seriously, this wreath is SO adorable! I’m putting it on my to-do list for today! I LOVE THIS!

  12. This is so very cool! I’ve pinned it I hope that’s okay!

  13. I am TOTALLY making this! Love it! Cute blog! I will be back!

  14. Do you have any advice for wrapping the yarn? I’m trying to make the argyle wreath, but I’m having a problem with my yarn being on an angle. Since the wreath is a circle, the yarn is closer together on the inside and there are gaps in the yarn on the outer edge.

  15. Love this idea! I have extra darker gray yarn just perfect for this project!

  16. Such a cute idea and easy! Thanks for sharing!

  17. SOOOO glad I found your blog! Cutest. Valentine’s. Wreath. EVER! Thank you for sharing!!!!

  18. Awesome! Simple and classy; love it.

  20. So cute! I want to make one! What size wreath did you use? Do you have the template for the hearts?

  21. Can you tell me how much gray yarn you used? Do I need to buy a few rolls? Thanks!

  22. Very cute idea! With that subdued grey yarn it looks very elegant and not too valentine-y!

  23. This looks so CUTE!! I do have one question though, how much yarn did you use to cover it all?

  24. I just made one of these. So easy! I bought a big roll of yarn (2 sceins) at WM for $3.88 and used about 2/3s of it to cover a 14″ straw wreath.

  25. I made one if these!! It was so much fun and turned out beautifully! Thanks for the awesome tutorial!

  26. These are adorable!! I’m a new follower ;)

  27. Hey from tessacotton! Love your creation. I would be so thrilled if you would link up to my new, Valentines Day themed linky party!

  28. I just finished making this and it’s very cute–I love it!

    A few numerical things for anyone else making it:

    –I used a 12″ foam wreath form, simply because that’s what I was able to find.

    –I ended up with 14 hearts, and my heart pattern was about 2″ x 2″.

    –Don’t underestimate the tediousness of wrapping yarn around the wreath. Do it while you’re watching shows or a movie or something. That part took about an hour and a half.

    –I bought a thing of cheap-ish yarn from the craft store and it was MORE than enough (Red Heart Super Saver brand, 244 yards-I used maybe a quarter of it.) If you can find a smaller thing of yarn, you’ll be just fine, but that was the most economical option for me.

  29. I so loved this I had to do it right away. I’m not quite done yet but I used a old pool noodle held together with some rolled up cardboard. It looks amazing!

  30. Thank you for this awesome tutorial! I love this wreath and decided to make one! So fun, cute and easy!! Thank you! :)

  31. I am in love with this! Now I need to find the time to make it. Thanks for the tutorial.

  32. I loved making this… it was so much fun. I would recommend getting a thick felt. My light pink hearts showed the glue through when I glued them to the wreath. I might just double them up. I also used pinking shears on my hearts which turned out cute! Thank you for sharing this fabulous idea!

  33. I still love this wreath, girl!! I included it in my round up today if you want to check it out: http://www.vixenmade.com/2013/01/10-valentine-wreaths.html

  34. Love this! Found it on Pinterest and made it the next day. I even blogged about it: http://chubbyfistsandweedbouquets.blogspot.com/2013/02/preppy-valentines-wreath.html

    Thanks for sharing!

  38. I just made this wreath and it is too cute! So happy with it❤️

  39. Working on the wreath now! Any idea how big your hearts are? Thanks.:)

  40. What size (thickness) of yard have you used? I am wanting to have my daughter’s Brownie group make the wreaths, but they will lose interest if it takes too long. I didn’t know if size 5 or 6 yarn would work. thanks

  41. That is such a great idea to use hearts as “argyle” for a Valentine’s Day wreath! It looks fantastic!
