Another Valentine Craft: Mini Valentine’s Button Grapevine Wreath


Mini Valentine’s Button Grapevine Wreath

I found these darling little heart shaped buttons at Hobby Lobby the other day and just had to get them to make a couple of these wreaths.

I had made one with regular buttons and it came out super cute so I knew this one would be darling too – and it is!  This was a hard craft to get  good photo of – the Glitter Mod Podge creates tons of sparkles on “film”.

This can also just as easily be a Christmas or other holiday ornament. Keep an eye out for the Mardi Gras and Easter wreaths in a post coming soon.

Materials:

  • Mini grapevine wreaths
  • Red rick-rack
  • Glitter Mod Podge
  •  Mini glittery foam hearts

Costs:

  • The buttons are $1.99 a package.  I bought 2 packs because I wanted to use them for several crafts.
  • I had the grapevine wreaths, rick-rack, Mod Podge, and tiny white buttons on-hand.

Instructions:

  1. Attach mini hearth shaped & round buttons and mini hearts with Glitter Mod Podge and let dry.  Drizzle the Mod Podge over the wreath and attach the buttons randomly.
  2. Suspend a couple of heart shaped mini cookie cutters with narrow white ribbon and tie on the wreath to dangle down in the center of the wreath.
  3. Next tie some red rick-rack on the wreath and make a bow.
  4. Add a couple of homemade heart shaped sugar cookies to the top of the wreath (punch a heart shape from tan craft foam and then a smaller one from white or red craft foam and glue together.).
  5. Display your wreaths:  Suspend from a curtain rod on ribbon or fishing line.  Attach a ribbon to either side and use as a curtain tie.  Tie on a wreath or garland.

ALTERNATIVES:

  • Wrap the wreath with lace before gluing on vintage buttons in assorted colors.
  • Use mini shells in the place of buttons.  Add a gauzey gold ribbon.
