Dollar Tree Heart Box Valentine Wreath
Run to the Dollar Tree store TODAY and buy the Valentine plastic heart boxes—10 for a dollar! You’ll need 2 packages to make this wreath. It is fast, cheap and easy to make. And looks adorable! What more could a girl want?
This project came together so fast, it even amazed me!
You’ll need a base for your wreath. I wanted a very narrow, almost invisible look, so I used the rim of an aluminum pie tin I saved for crafting–it’s a larger one, 10″ from edge to edge. (Hint: Aluminum dishes have all sorts of crafting uses, so you might want to hang on to them!)
I had already used the center, so here’s what it started out looking like.
Then I cut the side edge like this.
And ended up with this. (You could use heavy wire for this project, too, which I considered).
I purchased 2 bags of heart boxes at the Dollar Tree ($1 each!)
Then all I did was hot glue them to the pie tin. ***HINT: When you get to the last 4-5 hearts—-dry fit them because you’ll need to maneuver them around so that they all fit on the pie tin wreath form.
They’ll look like this.
Next you’ll use white glue and some white glitter (I used the most inexpensive kind, which is generally found in the children’s crafting section of craft stores).
Use a sponge brush to apply white glue to the tops of the hearts and then sprinkle with glitter. It’s like a little glitter party! And you know how much I love glitter!
Then what you end up with is a charming Valentine Wreath that cost practically nothing to make. So make one for your best friend, too!
I can do that! And you can, too!
