I know it’s cheesy, y’all…but I love Valentine’s Day! It’s over the top and fun and filled with hearts and all kinds of good stuff. I dig it! And, even if I hated Valentine’s…my customers don’t.
A lot of wreath sellers complain that sales drop way down after Christmas and stay that way for months. While it’s true that Christmas is a peak season for us all, that doesn’t mean your income has to plummet in January. Once Christmas is over, we start pushing out wreaths for Mardi Gras and Valentine’s, and I suggest you do the same.

I’ve said it before, but let me say it again, y’all. Stock up on all that Christmas greenery that goes on sale for 80-90% off after the holidays! Not only can you hang onto it for next year, but you can use the greenery for all kinds of great projects…like this Valentine’s Day door wreath!
Watch as I take a random leftover piece of Christmas greenery and transform it to something totally non Christmas-y. Plus, you’ll learn one of my nifty bow tricks!

DIY Valentine's Day Wreath Tutorial
- Take the left over spruce piece and make a hook at the top, then fluff it out.
- Then you'll get your greenery, use the stem cutter to trim the stem, take half the leaves twist down and fluff out.
- Put the greenery on top of the spruce piece, and with the spruce leaves, tie around the middle of the greenery to keep it in place. Fluff it all out.
- Get your EZ Bow Maker and a 4" ribbon. Measure out 12-inch tail and a 7-inch loop on each side.
- Next, get your 2.5" ribbon and make a 12-inch tail and (2) 6-inch loops on each side.
- After, use your 1.5" ribbon and make another 12-inch tail and a 6-inch loop on each side.
- Next, get your 1.5" ribbon and make a 12-inch tail and (2) 5.5-inch loops on each side.
- Take your 2.5" ribbon and make a 12-inch tail, scrunch in the middle and add it to your bow with the tail going up on the left side.
- Last, you can get one of your 1.5" ribbon and make a 12-inch tail and a single 5-inch loop on the left then cut the tail.
- Take your pipe cleaner, place in the center of your bow, tie and twist off nice and tight.
- Add your bow to your base and tie it nice and tight.
- You can use any scrap pieces of greenery from previous projects and add to your wreath around the bow. You can use your hot glue gun when you attach the greenery pieces.
- Trim the tails of your bow and cut them in to dovetails.
- Now you'll want to get a 14" grapevine base and attach your bow and greenery with a zip tie. Cut the excess from the zip tie. Be sure to fluff out your bow and arrange how you want it.
There you have it – an easy grapevine wreath and a piece of spruce turned into a gorgeous Valentine’s Day door wreath.
