Roses and Valentine Wreath.
This wreath was such a fun craft.
I love how it looks as though the dozen roses are accompanying a Valentine.
It only cost a few dollars and took about 10 minutes to create.
Note- when making these, if you want one at either end of a mantel, you will want to put the decoration on opposite sides (one left and one right).
Supply List for this Roses and Valentine Wreath

How to Make this Roses and Valentine Wreath
1- Hot glue 12 toothpick paper roses (5 pink and 7 red) or (7 red and 5 pink) onto a small wicker or willow wreath.
As you hot glue the bundle of toothpick roses, make sure they are layered so some are lower and others are higher up in the bundle.
Be generous with the hot glue so that they all are securely glued down.
2- Hot glue a felt Valentine at the base of the toothpicks to cover their stems and add interest.
See, super simple!
A tip in making this would be to be patient in gluing and arranging the toothpick roses. They can be a little hard to manage until you get a few glued down well.
I added one on each side of my Valentine’s Day Fireplace Mantel.
I glued the envelope and roses on the left and right sides so they would look balanced on each side of the mantel.
These wreaths were paired on the mantel with a slightly larger Valentine’s Pampas and flower wreath ; these wreaths also had the decor on the opposite sides.
Pairing the two wreaths together added further balance and interest in the display.
I hope this simple, quick and inexpensive Roses and Valentine Wreath gives you some crafting inspiration.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
