Heart & Arrow Valentine Wreath {It's $30 Thursday!}

Pin It

I wanted to keep it pretty simple with my Valentine d├ęcor this year.
 
{I never really go overboard with this holiday...it's fun to decorate for, but who really has time to deck the house out for V-day?}
 
One of my favorite decorations I made was this Heart & Arrow Valentine Wreath!
 
Here's what I used:

This wreath was surprisingly simple and quick!
1.  I cut some even smaller sprigs off of the "Spring Sprigs" from Michael's.
2.  I cut my long pieces of floral wire in half, then bent it in half.
3.  To attach the sprigs to the wreath, I just kind of wiggled the bent wire into the wreath, securing the sprigs, until it poked through the back.  I twisted the two pieces together on the back side of the wreath.
4.  A close-up to show you how the wire is securing the sprigs to the wreath.
5.  A look at the wreath with all of the sprigs attached.
6.  I attached a bunch of ribbon to the back of the wreath and made kind of a top-knot with all of the ribbon flowing over.  I also attached a scrapbook paper arrow to the front of the wreath using some clips that I hot-glued to the back of the arrow.
 
Doesn't it look cute on my mantel? 
I sure do love that old window grate! It makes a great backdrop for the wreath!

Let's see what my talented friends did this month for $30 Thursday!
 
Shayna's Mind Your Manners Burlap Placemats are adorable!
