DIY Valentine’s Day decor that doesn’t break the bank. This wreath is easy and fun to make for under $5. Also makes for a fun craft to make with the kids!
It is time for a DIY Valentine’s Wreath for the door! Decorating for the seasons is a lot of fun but who wants to spend a fortune on changing out their wreath every couple of months? Not me!
A couple years ago, I bought a grapevine wreath that goes through a transformation every season. My goal is always to keep the price tag on these transformations as low as possible – typically under $5. I managed to make this valentine’s wreath for $3.50 (not including the grapevine wreath)!

How to make the Easy DIY Valentine’s wreath –
Step 1 – Start twisting the pipe cleaners into hearts. The hearts were twisted the same way we did for the DIY Valentine’s headband. Check it out for a full video tutorial on making the hearts.
Twisting into hearts was so much fun, my 5 year old joined in. I may or may not have simply surfed Pinterest on my phone most of the time….
We made a total of about 75 hearts. It sounds like a lot but took only about half an hour!
Step 2- Once the hearts are twisted and ready (sounds funky huh?!!), tuck them into the grapevine wreath.
It helps to roll up the bottom of the pipe cleaners around the finger to give it a curl. It makes it easier to stick them in the grapevine.
We added a bunch of hearts together like a bouquet and 3 hearts “flying ” out of the bunch.
Step 3- Add a pretty bow. I used a piece of pink tulle I had on hand.
We have our Valentine’s wreath ready for the door! I love the rustic feeling the grapevine adds to the cheesy hearts.
