Faux / fresh greens and flowers
Green and flowers, real or artificial, are great for decorating Valentine's Day as they look fresh and romantic. You can shape them as hearts or keep them in a normal shape by adding bows, beads, and bold fabric or paper hearts. To make the wreath more durable, stick to artificial greens and flowers.
Paper is the easiest material to make a wreath with. Take vintage Valentine's cards, playing cards, or paper hearts and attach them to a common wreath shape that covers all or part of them. It's up to you - it's easy!
Fabric or thread are also great for handicrafts. Make a pompom wreath in the shape of a heart - it's super easy, or cover the wreath with yarn and attach felt hearts. Use a nice vintage frame with some hearts hanging and bows added to decorate. If you want a rustic feel, make a heart-shaped wreath out of wooden discs and add a large bow. Happy Valentines Day!
