Simple DIY Valentine wreath

I love searching my local dollar store for holiday decorations. This latest trip, I found a wire heart wreath frame that I knew would work well for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t think the green of the frame would work for my idea, though, so I first spray painted it with a can of Rust-Oleum Metallic Silver.

I found a mixed bag of pipe cleaners at Hobby Lobby that included some metallics I really liked. I bought 3 bags to make sure I had enough of the metallic ones to go around the wreath, and vowed to save the other colors for another project one day.

I cut the pipe cleaners in half and twisted them onto the form. I started with the silver on the inside, bending them this way and that.

The next layer was the lighter pink. I wanted it to have an ombre feel to it when complete.

Here it is, halfway finished. AS you can see, I didn’t twist them so closely together that you couldn’t see the wire frame anymore. I liked having it peek through.

This was a super simple craft and I had my girls help me with it. I will say, our fingers were stained slightly pink when we were finished!

I love how fun and bright it is. It’s the perfect size to hang on the hall tree next to our front door and it cost me less than $10 to make!
