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! But the truth is that even if I hated Valentine’s, my customers definitely 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 successfully start pushing out wreaths for Mardi Gras and Valentine’s, and I suggest you do the same.

DIY Valentine Wreath Instructions
Simply follow these step-by-step instructions to create a gorgeous finished product you’ll love on your door (or be proud to sell)!
Take your spruce piece and make a hook at the top. Then, fluff it out to make it full-looking.
Next, take your greenery, trim the stem with the stem cutter, and twist down half the leaves. Then, fluff them out.
Put the greenery on top of the spruce piece, and use the spruce leaves to tie around the middle of the greenery to keep it in place. Fluff everything out.
Get your EZ Bow Maker. Using a 4″ ribbon, measure out a 12-inch tail with a 7-inch loop on each side.
Then, take your 2.5″ ribbon and make a 12-inch tail with (2) 6-inch loops on each side.
Next, use your 1.5″ ribbon to yet another 12-inch tail and a 6-inch loop on each side.
Now take your 1.5″ ribbon and make a 12-inch tail and (2) 5.5-inch loops on each side.
With your 2.5″ ribbon, make a 12-inch tail, scrunch in the middle and add it to your bow with the tail going up on the left side.
Finally, take one of your 1.5″ ribbons and make a 12-inch tail and a single 5-inch loop on the left then cut the tail.
Using a pipe cleaner, place it in the center of your bow and tie it off nice and tightly.
Add your bow to your base and secure it.
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.
As the last step, 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. Done!
That’s it! It looks like a lot of steps, but the process is really very easy. Are you ready to make your own? Grab your supplies and go get started!
