Easy Valentine's Day Wreath (10 Minutes or Less)

I've got a simple holiday craft for you today. I wanted a cute new Valentine's Day Wreath for our front door, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on supplies. After a quick trip to Dollar Tree, I had the "main ingredient" for my wreath: tinsel. I. love. sparkle. (I am a bit of a magpie.) The store had a whole end-cap with different Valentine themed tinsel garland! I'll show you how to make one on your own...it should take less than 10 minutes.

Supplies:

-Wreath Form (styrofoam or natural is fine)
-4 or 5 tinsel garlands
-Coordinating Ribbon
-Scissors

Instructions:

*You may want to spray paint your wreath form beforehand. Mine was already spray painted white to blend with our front door, but the garland covers the form pretty well.*

1. Loop one end of your tinsel garland around the wreath form and tie in a knot. 

2. Wrap the rest of the garland around the form and secure the other end. Repeat with the other garlands until the form is covered. Add another layer of tinsel or hearts on a wire string. 

Your wreath will look like this:

I chose to layer two different ribbons from my holiday stash to hang my wreath:

I don't normally decorate for Valentine's Day...but I might this year. I saw those same wreaths the other day at Dollar Tree and thought "Hmmm...". Yours turned out cute (:

I don't normally do a wreath, but might attempt something similiar to yours this year. I am decorating the mantle and piano though.

Have a great week! =)
