Do you enjoy decorating for Valentine’s Day? I’ve always enjoyed decorating for Valentine’s day, but since we moved into our house just over a year ago, I’ve had the itch to change up a lot of my decor. I’ve gotten rid of some stuff and made some new. I find when I pull out the decor for upcoming holidays that I’ve gotten rid of more stuff than I remember, LOL! I’m working on pulling out my Valentine’s decor this week, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share this Be Mine Valentine Wreath with you today. Paper is one of my favorite things to use on wreaths. It’s so fun and colorful and has great patterns for any time of year.

Be Mine Valentine Wreath Supplies:
- 12 x 12 Valentine Scrapbook Paper
- Red Glitter Thickers
- Minc Valentine Tags
- Minc Foil Applicator
- Reactive Foil
- Paper Trimmer
- Ric Rac
- Glue Gun
- Baker’s Twine
After you gather your supplies, start out by using the chipboard to create your wreath form. Then cut your paper into 1″ strips.
Then cut your strips into 4″ pieces. You should end up with several 1″ x 4″ pieces of paper.
Grab your stapler, fold one of your papers, without creasing it, and staple it to your chipboard.
Continue all the way around the outer edge, then move to the middle section and then inner section.
Your wreath should look like this at this point.
Isn’t the dimension so fun?! I love that paper can add such a fun texture an dimension to projects!
Next you’ll grab your glue gun and some pink ric rac.
Glue the ric rac on, covering up the staples.
Next, grab a couple of tags and some reactive foil for the Minc.
Run them through the Minc to apply the foil.
Apply the Red Glitter Thickers to your tags to spell Be Mine. Attach the tags together so they hang the way you would like them to.
Tie Baker’s Twine bows at the top of the tags.
Tie another Baker’s Twine bow, leaving the tails long, and attach it to the ric rac on the wreath.
Attach the tails to the back of the tags.
Now you are ready to hang up your wreath.
Depending on the paper you choose to use, it turns out so bright and colorful!
There are so many fun Wreaths you could make using this technique, as well as fun valentine projects using valentine paper.
This is a project that I shared previously on the Pebbles Inc. blog.Linking up to some of these parties.
