Valentine Triple Wreath

January 22, 2015




I am not a fan of a naked front door. I always have something pretty and seasonal to decorate the outside of my home and welcome guests. During late January and early February, I go for red. By this time of winter, I find myself craving color.

Luckily, with Valentine's Day on the horizon, I have the perfect excuse to whip up something super bright and festive! This year, I decided to add a triple wreath to my bland entryway. I totally fell in love with the one I had on the door for Christmas, I figured why not replicate the style.

I am very happy with the way it turned out. I started with three dollars' worth of faux flowers and a bit of floral wire to create these mini wreaths.


Initially, they were decorating candles in my kitchen, but with the addition of a little rustic twine and some ribbon, I transformed them into a fabulous Valentine triple wreath.


To see the initial mini wreath tutorial click here.

I just looped the pink ribbon around the floral wire, connecting two wreaths and hot glued the ribbon to secure it. I usually tie the ribbons on my triple wreaths, but this wreath was so delicate, I had no where to hide a knot, so glue was the way to go.


I have to say that it looks just as pretty inside my house as it does outside, but like I said, no undressed doors, so it's out.


I must tell you though, as much as I rant that I do not do faux flowers, I miss them in my kitchen...suddenly my candles look naked and that's not good either.

Looks like I'm off to the dollar store again.

What's on your front door?

  1. Hi Kim, wow that is so creative of you! I guess I should make some kind of valentine craft as I usually don't believe it or not! LOL!

  2. Maybe you could crochet some red and pink rosettes and hearts and fasten them to a twig wreath! :) I bet that would be very pretty!

  4. Hi there Kim! Now that is such a money-saver and great way to recycle one lovely decoration to another. From bobeche decorations to wreaths...and I really like the three small wreaths together. I have nothing on my front door yet, but I think I'll take my heart-shaped grapevine wreath (if I can remember where I saw it!) and embellish it with little red roses. Great idea!

    Have a wonderful Friday! Anita

  5. I totally agree, Kim. Now your candles will be naked and that's not a good thing! Such lovely little wreaths. Now I must make something to go on my front door. I picked up some tinsel heart wreaths at DT, and will now tie pink, white, and clear plastic strips on them for more body. Tomorrow, maybe that is what will be on my front door!

    Thanks for your lovely flowers to remind us of Spring!

  7. I hope so Lynne! I live in a beach community and during summer it is abuzz with friends and neighbors. In the winter, everyone seems to hibernate, all activity is planned! Boo! I like the summer drop ins! ;)

  8. I have to say Anita, I really liked them on my candles...so now they are there, as well!! I bet your front door will look very festive, ready for your big celebrations!! :)

  9. Hi Kim! Yes, you have given me an idea. I rarely put up decorations for one-day holidays, but a heart wreath is a great idea for any day. I think I'll attach a nice long ribbon to blow in the wind! XOXOX

  11. Ah, the teaser is revealed. It looks very nice. I am glad that the candles are getting the flower treatment again. There is nothing right now on my front door. My house is kind of weird in that the parking is on the north side and the front door (the door that enters into the living room) is on the south. There is no sidewalk up to it so no one ever uses it. We did paint it yellow when we started painting the house last fall and so I am thinking that it will be cute decorated with spring colors. Looking forward to your next project.

  12. You are so clever! I love this idea and I feel the same way about a naked front door.

  13. Thanks Lorri! We have the same situation over here...no one ever uses our front door. It does face the street, so people do see it, but everyone comes through the kitchen slider and there's no way to put anything festive up over there. :)

  14. Thank you, Susan! The front door thing is part of my decorating OCD! ;)

  18. I love it!! I did not guess this, I was thinking something for your table when you asked in your previous post. :-))
    I really love it and I love the PINK ribbon.
    Have a great weekend,

  19. Very pretty! I guess it's time to get our the glue gun and make something for the front door now that January is just about over.

  20. Kim, so pretty. I love the red. I took my Christmas down, and I don't have anything at the moment!

  21. So that's what you did with the floral rings...very pretty! :)

    My back door has a pine wreath with pinecones...very plain. The front door has a twig wreath with silver berries...a Xmas gift from the son and DIl. It's nice for this snowy time of year here.

  22. Thanks Deb! Your silver berry wreath sounds like a perfect fit for winter! :)

  24. Thanks! I love that glue gun...so many possibilities! :)

  25. Thanks Carla! The table huh, I bet I could lay that wreath down on the table, on a runner and pop candles into them for a centerpiece! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

  26. Thanks, Vel! Glad you like it! :)

  27. Very pretty. I like the simple white bow and the bit of twine. Pretty pink ribbon, too. Nicely done, Kim. Nothing on my the entry door of our apartment. It really isn't seen and, honestly, I have a hard time getting excited about decorating here. I am collecting inspiration photos and ideas for our new cottage though. xxx ~ Nancy

  28. That looks so pretty, Kim! I've been wanting to do a triple wreath of some kind for my front door -- just haven't decided exactly what I want to do. I liked the roses as candle rings, too.

  29. So cute!!!
    I don't care for 'naked' doors either, but I get sooo lazy about it!
    (And did I read that you're missing your faux flowers?!!! WHAT?! hahaha. Am I rubbing off on you... even across the world?!) =)

  30. I know it's hard to get excited about your surroundings when they are temporary, Nancy. I am sure that you must be itching to move forward with your place! I hope that project is moving along! :)

  31. Yes Rachel ~ apparently your reach is cross continental! Those fake dollar store roses have been perched on my front door and my kitchen buffet...and I am loving them! ;)

  32. I love the triple wreath look, Carol. My first one was the rustic Christmas wreath. I used smaller wreaths and it just looked so sweet on the door that I had to replicate the look. Thank goodness Valentine's Day gave me a reason! ;)

  33. It is, Kim. I'll be sharing an update this week. :)
