It’s time for another Rock Your Knock Off Tour!  This time the projects shared are Pinterest inspired.

My wreath was inspired by one that I pinned from Plow and Hearth Catalog.  You can find the pin here and if you aren’t already a follower on Pinterest, I invite you to do so.  (I love pinning!)

Plow and Hearth Wreath

Plow and Hearth’s wreath costs $44.95 without shipping.  My version cost just $1 since I had all of the supplies on hand except for the foam core board that I purchased from Dollar Tree.

 

I started making my wreath by drawing a large heart on white foam core board.  I then cut the heart out and  painted it red using paint leftover from this end table makeover.  After the paint dried, I applied spray adhesive and Martha Stewart Crystal Coarse Glitter.

Pinterest Inspired Valentine Project How-To

 

The vintage valentines that I used for this project were all found with a quick search on Pinterest.  You can find them all here if you’d like to use them for your own project.  I copied each valentine to a word document and then printed them on card stock.  After cutting them out, they were glued to the hearth with glittered Mod Podge.  I used glittered Mod Podge for more bling.

Vintage Valentines for Wreath

 

After completing this wreath I hung it on my pantry door but didn’t really like it there.  Then it went to the screened porch where I would see it a lot but it clashes with my brick.  I’ll either use this over my mantel or it will go to school where I know the kids will adore it.

  1. Your wreath looks great! I am going to check out Dollar Tree to see if I can get the heart foam core. It would be fun to use it to make Valentine’s for my kids. Thanks for sharing! Stumbled and pinned.

  2. This wreath turned out great, Paula! I love the vintage look to this wreath.

      Thanks, Vanessa. I can’t wait to see what the kids say tomorrow when they see it hanging on my classroom door. Hopefully they will think it’s neat!

  3. This is so cute Paula! What a fun way to keep Valentine’s Day cards too (or just an excuse to buy ones)! Printing them out was also a great idea and a free one too! I bet your kids at school would love seeing this! Or maybe you could bring a blank one and they could fill it up!

  4. This is really cute, Paula. I’ve got some vintage valentines too and think maybe I need to make a wreath to hang them on. So fun!

      You’ve reminded me to dig out the few vintage valentines that I have. I usually display them this time of year using old flower frogs.

  6. What a cute wreath and I love your $1 version! Those vintage Valentine’s are adorable. 🙂

  7. That is adorable, I love the vintage cards so cute! You did a fantastic job!

  8. Paula, this is adorable! I’ve always love the vintage cards. I never thought about making a wreath from them. It reminds me of hanging Christmas cards on a string across a doorway. Jeanette

      Thanks, Jeanette! Now I’m thinking about making a valentine vintage card garland since you reminded me of hanging Christmas cards across a door. That would be great for my mantel.

  9. I adore your vintage wreath! So cute..I had to read all around the whole heart..I’m such a pushover for vintage:) Good job!

  10. Very sweet, Paula! Perfect for Valentine’s Day! XO

  11. I remember when my Valentine’s looked like this in elementary school….this makes me want to bring it all back somehow. I LOVE your version, and the cost is right up my alley.

  12. Paula this is such an adorable wreath! I had never seen the Plow and Hearth one before but I can see why it inspired you. I would have believed that you used real vintage Valentines – they look so real!

  13. That is adorable!! What a great way to reuse things. My Mom would love this in her room – she uses that style! #SCBH2015
