Mini Love Bunting Wreath

Mini LOVE Bunting Wreath {Dolen Diaries}

Valentine’s Day décor doesn’t always have to red and pink. They can be most subtle so if you say get super busy and it’s April and you still have them up they work. Not that I would ever do such a thing! Ha, ha! Yesterday, I shared a Mini LOVE bunting Valentine and today I thought it would be fun to show you a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to display them. Here’s house to make your own Mini Love Bunting Wreath…

Mini LOVE Bunting Wreath Supplies {Dolen Diaries}

You’ll need: ribbon {mine is from Hobby Lobby}; Mini LOVE bunting; and a grapevine wreath. *I needed two of everything because I was hanging my wreaths on the windows of the French doors in our dining area.

Before we get started let’s all pause a moment and take a closer look at this grapevine wreath. It’s only $3.00 in the Target Dollar Spot right now! Isn’t that awesome! Target is really upping their crafty game!

To start I looped the ribbon through the center of the grapevine wreath and held it up to the window to find the perfect length for the windows.

Once I had my length, I cut the ribbon and tied a simple knot at the top.

To attach the Mini Love Bunting, I simply threaded the twine around one vine and secured it with a knot. Repeat on the other end of the bunting. You could hot glue the twine to the wreath but I want to be able to switch out the bunting easily and the knot holds perfectly!

Now this wreath is ready to hang!

After hanging my wreath I decided that I wanted to add a bow on the top to cover the white hook a bit more. I had fallen in love with this striped ribbon at Hobby Lobby and they had two widths so I naturally bought them both.

I used the wider width for the bow and attached it with a silver twist tie.

Mini Love Bunting Valentines

Mini LOVE Valentine Buntings a perfect Valentine for your girlfriends! {Dolen Diaries}

I’ve always loved Valentines Day. As a child, it was SO exciting picking out the perfect little card set to hand out to all of my classmates.  Now as a mom it is fun to help my boys get their Valentines together. This year I wanted to get in on the fun, too! I wanted to give my friends a little something special just to say how near and dear they are to my heart so I decided to hand out Mini Love Bunting Valentines.  They are SO easy to make and who wouldn’t love to get one of these!?!

Mini LOVE Valentine Bunting Supplies {Dolen Diaries}

You’ll need:

White Cardstock; Scissors or a Paper Cutter; L, O, V, E Stamps; Black Stamp Pad; Vintage Photo Distressing Ink; Kraft Paper or Scratch Paper to protect your table; Stencil Brush; Black Felt Pen; Mini Hole Punch; Twine; Clear Plastic Bags; Stickers or Labels

Cut the white cardstock into 2″ wide strips then cut the strips into 2″ x 1.5″ rectangles.

Using a mini hole punch, punch two holes in the center-ish at the top of each card.

To keep organized, put together sets of 4.

Roll out some kraft paper to protect your table. Grab the distressing ink and a stenciling brush.

Swoosh the brush around on the ink pad and then swoosh it in circular motions around the edges of the card.

To make them a little gift you’ll need to wrap them! I got these adorable little labels in the Target Dollar Spot and the clear plastic bags at Michael’s for just a couple of bucks.

Oh how I love them!!

I gave them to all the girls in my Bible Study on the first day of our winter study because I just couldn’t wait until Feb. {We are doing Priscilla Shirer’s Gideon study just incase you were wondering!} I figured everyone might like to display their buntings before actual Valentine’s Day anyways. My girlfriend, Kate, is leading the study and when I told her I was giving everyone a Mini Love Bunting Valentine she brought these adorable mini clothes pins to clip the buntings to the fronts of the book that everyone would be getting that day. It made our first day back to Bible study extra special!
