I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: tiny things are just plan cute.

And these tiny Valentine wreaths are no exception.They’re quick and easy to make, and pretty much look adorable wherever you put them.

Although clearly, I’m partial to hanging them around the neck of an animal figurines you may have around the house.

Psst — before I show you how to make these cuties, enter your info below for my VIP group! I’ll send more of my very best ideas straight to ya.

Valentine Crafts to Make Together

Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily my favorite holiday but it’s sure a fun one to craft for!

Whether you’re making Valentine decor, gifts for somebody you like, or just class Valentines, it’s a sweet time of the year to be creative.

I took a moment to link a few of the best things (IMO) from our Valentine library for you below! Be sure to pin your favorites so that you can find them again easily.

And if that’s not enough Cupid vibes for you, you might as well snack on some Conversation Heart Popcorn or Valentine Rice Krispies treats while you get crafty!

Supplies You’ll Need

Tiny Wooden Hearts. These little wood hearts are so fun for crafting; I’ve had a supply of them for over a decade and have used them in lots of different ways.

Red Craft Paint. An acrylic craft paint is perfect for this project. It goes onto wood nicely and will yield a beautiful, saturated color.

Paintbrush. I keep brushes from this set on hand to use on painting projects for both me and the kids.

Krazy Glue or Glue Gun. I used Krazy Glue on these particular Valentine wreaths (this formula is great on wood and dries quickly). If you don’t have it on hand, a glue gun will work too.

Ribbon or Cord. I had some leftover gold cord from Christmas, but this would be pretty with any ribbon you like!

How to Make Mini Valentine Wreaths

  1. Start by deciding how many wooden hearts you’ll need in your wreath (or multiple wreaths). I made two, one with mostly red hearts and one with mostly natural wood hearts.
  2. Paint the front of any wood hearts that you’d like. We show red here, but choose your favorite color and go for it!
  3. Once the paint has dried, lay out the bottom layer of your hearts in the size and shape of your wreath. Each wreath will have two layers of hearts. In our bottom layer, we have 11 hearts and in our top layer we have 9.
  4. Once the bottom layer is laid in place, put a small amount of glue on the back of another heart and lay it across two hearts from the bottom layer. You’ll continue using the hearts on the top layer to adhere the hearts on the bottom layer in place, overlapping them so that they hold together.
  5. If you’d like to make a wreath like ours, adhere one unpainted heart to the top layer of your wreath as an accent. In a similar fashion, you can make a wreath of plain wood hearts with a single painted one.
  6. Allow all glue to dry and set.
  7. Adhere a small length of cord or ribbon to the back of your wreaths for hanging. You can also adhere a pin back instead, to make the wreath wearable.

How to Use Your Valentine Wreaths

I sprinkled a few of these around our house as decor!

They look very sweet hanging from cabinet handles, around the neck of a bottle, or strung in front of a mirror.

You could also gift these around the neck of a wine bottle — so fun!

Alternatively, just affix them to the front of a Valentine card with a little washi tape and they make a lovely and thoughtful handmade gift.

Have fun! xoxo

  1. Tiny things ARE cute! I wonder why we think that?! I don’t mind, either way! I absolutely adore the red wreath, it is so incredibly vibrant and just screams love 😍 I think I’d have these hanging off my doors all year long just so the house feels more filled with love and happiness; as that’s what I want my house to feel like all the time! These really are great, you never fail to make something wonderful – or, “lovely” 😉
