Easy DIY Tulle Valentine’s Day Wreath
Inspired by Craftionary:
- Styrofoam wreath: 12” to 14” would be ideal, but pick a size that works for you. Circular or heart-shaped wreaths work well for this project.
- Two rolls of tulle in the colors of your choice — red and pink is always a classic combination.
- A 13” box edge flap (or something similar) to prepare the tulle.
Step 1: Create your tulle strips
For this design, you’ll need several 13” strips of tulle. Rather than measuring and cutting each individual piece of tulle, we’ve figured out a handy shortcut: the box flap. Wrap the tulle around the flap and secure it using an office clip or clothespin. Cut the tulle along each edge of the box flap, and there! You’ve got all the 13” tulle strips you need.
Step 2: Tie, tie, then tie some more
Tie two strips of red tulle around the wreath and double knot them. Then, take two strips of pink and do it again. Repeat this pattern all the way around the wreath. Make sure you tie the strips close enough together that the foam underneath doesn’t show.
Step 3: Fluff and finish
Once the foam is covered, fluff the edges of the tulle until they’re full and even. Then, add accents – beaded wire or puff ball trim should do the trick. Use a red-and-white polka dot ribbon to hang the wreath, and you’re finished!
