DIY Army wreath for Valentine's Day

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this wreath I made! Since I will be spending yet another V-Day without my hubby :( I thought I would make one of these for our door! My side of the heart is SO me, lol Hot pink, damask print, flowers and BLING!

You need 1 ACU top, or about 1/2 yrd of acu fabric and 1/2 yrd of coordinating fabric. I used Pinking shears to cut my strips to prevent frays ( i think it looks better too) but you can use regular straight edge scissors too.


Pinking shears or regular scissors
ACU material
coordinating material
Wire wreath frame

Cut your strips of fabric 2in by 6in... You need ALOT of them, dependingon how full you want your wreath.

Okay, I couldnt find a heart shaped frame, but i did find this heart wreath with garland on it at the craft store, so I simply cut off the garland and Voila! You can see the back of the frame in this pic.

Once the garland is off, just start tieing your strips on one at a time. I just did a single knot and thats it!!

You can add any type of embellishment you would like, I added my hubbys name tag and some fabric flowers :)

Enjoy! Happy Crafting!


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Wreath You Made!!! But Im NOT The Kind Of Person Who Is That Talented To Make One! Do You Make These To Sell? I Would Pay You Good Money If You Could Make Me One!

  2. How did you do the cute little flowers?

  3. I was wondering how big your heart frame was. I have found lots of different sizes, but wanted to make sure that the 1/2 yard of fabric would be enough! I would also love to know how you did the flowers! We are thinking about doing this at our FRG meeting, since our guys will be gone for V-day too!
