How to make a Valentine Ornament Wreath

Here is what you need:
  1. a glass of wine (if you are anal and will worry about bulb placement)
  2. Styrofoam Heart Wreath (DON'T buy floral foam)
  3. glue sticks and a glue gun
  4. Red Decorator Spray Paint (to color the foam wreath). I used red. Use whatever color you like best.
  5. about 50 different size Valentine color ornaments).
  6. Spray Glitter (or body glitter left over from Halloween).
  7. a small piece of ribbon to hang your wreath
Spray paint your foam wreath. You can use whatever color you like but keep in mind some paint will show between your bulbs.

* small bulbs are essential to fill in the gaps


Now, it is pretty similar to the Christmas Ornament Wreath Tutorial. Place your bulbs on the inside of the heart wreath. (Don't use your favorite bulbs on this part a lot of these bulbs will be covered up.) After you have placed your bulbs, use your glue gun to secure them in place. You will glue each bulb to the wreath AND, to the next bulb in place.
 
  
Repeat this process for the outside of the wreath. Use the same size bulbs all the way around the outside of the wreath. Use sturdier (not vintage-they break really easily) bulbs on the outside. (Again, don't use your favorite bulbs here).
 

Now you are ready to start placing your favorite bulbs (I find it is best to do this in the evening while you have {at least} a glass of wine. If you are anal {me} and tend to over think things {also me} you will have a hard time figuring out where the bulbs should go). Don't over think it! Place a few bulbs (not worrying about small gaps) and then glue them in place. You can fill in gaps with smaller bulbs at the end. When you finish placing all your bulbs weave your ribbon through, take two Tylenol and go to bed. 

Finally, spray your wreath glitter. This will really make it shine!

*Store your wreath at room temperature!
 Otherwise your glue will expand/contract and the bulbs will fall off and (possibly) break.  

  Happy Valentines Day!
