|Before you take down your artificial Christmas wreath and stow it away for another year, check out today’s DIY tutorial on repurposing your wreath after Christmas. In a matter of just a few minutes, we take one of our artificial Christmas wreaths and transform it into a show-stopping Valentine’s Day wreath.
Supplies You’ll Need:
Step 1: Flatten The Artificial Wreath
For the purpose of this wreath, we want the pine branches to be as compact as possible. Flatten all of the individual pine branches going in the same direction to protect them. These compact needles are also important because they will help grip the stems of the artificial roses used in the next step.
Step 2: Add White Roses
Position 5 or six large white roses around the wreath. Evenly space your flowers as you work. Simply position the stem of the flowers into your wreath, hiding the stem among the pine branches.
Step 3: Add Red Roses
With your white roses all securely in place, start working in an abundance of artificial red roses. Enough red roses should be added to provide dense coverage over the pine needles. Continue working your way around the wreath, ensuring the foliage is covered and the roses are evenly distributed.
Step 4: Insert Baby’s Breath
With all the primary flowers in place, it is time to add the finishing touches. A handful of baby’s breath stems around the edge will add an extra layer of texture and color to your finished Valentine’s Day wreath. This is the final component that will help cover up the pine foliage.
Step 5: Hang Your Wreath
Now that you have placed all your floral elements and given them a final spruce-up, the only thing left to do is hang your wreath and start enjoying its beauty. This wreath can be hung on your front door, over your mantel, or as part of a larger photo wall gallery.
Today, we transformed an artificial Christmas wreath into a Valentine’s Day arrangement, but the method we used could be applied to any artificial flowers you may like. Instead of roses, consider doing this same project with hydrangeas, peonies, or tulips. If you love roses but want a softer look, consider using pink and white roses instead of red and white roses.
