Here’s a way to make a pretty DIY heart-shaped wreath that’s so easy!
If you are having a hard time finding a heart-shaped wreath form in the craft stores don’t worry…there’s an easy trick to making your own form!

Step 1. Form Heart Shape
First, I cut a 60-inch piece ( 152.4 cm) of the grapevine garland with a pair of sharp shears.
I took the two ends of the grapevine and bent them down to form the top of the heart; then I secured them together by wrapping floral wire around tightly.
I squished the bottom of the grapevine together and wrapped it with the floral wire to form the point of the heart wreath.
The grapevine wreath wants to close on itself so I put a heavy board on top for a couple of hours to flatten it out.
Step 2. Add The Flowers
Now it’s time for the flowers!
A heavy container kept the wreath flat while I was popping in the flowers. (it will hang up nicely at the end…you’ll see!!)
I was going for a simple, pretty look on this wreath using pink and white flowers and some dainty greenery. The flowers I had on hand from a bouquet I bought at Michael’s last Spring.
I added one large pink flower as the focus for the wreath.
Here are a few links to similar flowers that you can use to make your own heart-shaped wreath (Updated on 1/13/22):
- Pink Peony Bush
- Coral Peony Bunch
- Rose Stem
- White Carnation Stem
- Lamb’s Ear Bush
- Grapevine Heart Wreath
- Grapevine Garland
Next, I tucked in a white carnation on either side of the rose followed by a lamb’s ear leaf.
Here’s a quick YouTube video I made for this wreath!

Ready To Hang Up!
I used the wire at the top of the heart to hang up the wreath on my front door.
It’s such a fresh pretty look…especially in January ( we can pretend it’s Spring, right??)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
