Let’s make a Valentine photo wreath DIY! This wreath is so fluffy and bold, it certainly makes a statement about love!

My good friend Jennifer Perkins is a spokesperson for Treetopia, a company that specializes in ginormous and gorgeous faux holiday trees and wreaths. The bummer is Treetopia is now out of business for direct to consumer shopping, but you can still find their products on Amazon and in national retailers.

When it comes to trees – Jennifer is like me in that we see EVERY branch as an opportunity for embellishment. So imagine how excited I was when Jennifer invited me to make a Valentine’s wreath!

The wreath we each were sent was 36″ and very pink and very fluffy!

I knew I wanted to make a shadow box but had to think about the engineering aspect and the weight. I opted for a large embroidery hoop. I inserted glittered canvas (yes, I just happen to have it on hand).

Here is the trick, I put the right side of the fabric facing out the back side to make a recessed area.

I trimmed off the excess and glued crepe paper around the inside to hide the hoop.

As far as the inside of the shadow box, I couldn’t decide! Finally I opted for a fabric wreath I found at Target. Perfect size! I used Tacky Glue to affix it to the canvas.

Then I added a painted milagro heart in the center! I used Aleene’s Tacky Dots to stick the metal to the canvas.

See? It’s all coming together! For the actual wreath decorations, I decided to use photos of me and Patrick. I used Picmonkey to make them each the same size.

I picked up some mini-glittered clothespins to attach them, and I made little paper roses to fill in.

First I hung the shadow box, like this.

Then I hung the wreath on top. Then I put it all together with some other goodies.

Don’t have a pink wreath? Use a white or red one one from Christmas. You can even spray paint a green one.

  1. One of my favorite V-Day Memories is from way back, when I was in the 1st grade. A boy from my class brought me a red rose to my house after school. It was such a sweet surprise! It still makes me smile!

  2. My favorite valentine memory is when I got my first handmade valentines from the kiddos when they were in nursery school. They melt my hear every time I see those scribbles and scrawls.

  4. Love the wreath! I made a wreath similar to the felt heart wreath & I think I’ll try to frame it out with another larger wreath.

  5. One year my husband tried to surprise me and cook sesame chicken (my favorite dish)–long story short, he completely burned the meal and almost started an apartment fire and we ended up having to order a pizza instead and laughing the night away.

  6. I USED to get chocolate and jewelry for Valentines day. Used to. So sad. Now I’m not his valentine anymore. Just his cook and maid. Whatever.

  8. My favorite Valentines Day memory is with my children when they were small, now theyre grown and gone. I would make them heart shaped hamburger patties, it was a fovorite, with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy and lots of sweet treats! And a valentine with balloons for each one, I sure do miss those days.

  11. My favorite memory is when my children were little and fixing out all those Valentines for school! I had boys so it was a little less frilly than I would have loved but they had so much fun and then the ones they brought home, they would sit down and tell me all about the person who gave it to them. I miss those days, now 36 and 30 years later!

  12. Love how you turned your wreath into a shadow box. Super cute idea and love the hearts, roses and pictures you added to it. The sparkly clothes pins are the perfect touch also.

  13. Love the wreath! Today’s my boyfriend and my second anniversary. 🙂 Just under two years ago, on Valentine’s Day, we had only been dating a week. I wasn’t sure if we’d do anything to celebrate since our relationship was so new. But on V-day, he showed up at my place with a basket full of mini DESSERTS from Whole Foods! Hehe. Clearly it was meant to be. 😉
