Cupid’s Arrow Heart Wreath

Cupid's Arrow Heart Wreath from Farmhouse38.comI’ve still got a few more Valentine’s Day projects and goodies to try to squeeze in before it’s here! This one is a natural companion for the Cupid’s Arrow Garland. Same little arrows (see how to make them here), all clustered together on a DIY wire heart wreath.

Once you’ve taken a look at the other post and learned how to make the arrows, all you need is some raffia-covered wire from the floral section at the craft store, and a hot glue gun.

I cut three lengths of the raffia wire, approximately 70 inches in length (the finished wreath is about 18 x 18″). I then twisted these three pieces into one. At the middle of the length of twisted wire, make a bend, this will be the point of the heart. Now neatly twist together the loose ends and proceed to shape the wire into a heart form.

Make sure you double-check that the ends are secure.

If need be, bring in a second pair of eyes to make sure your ends are secure.

Now, glue your arrows into place. It’s as simple as that (once you’ve handmade about forty arrows–no biggie!).

And there you have it!

If this wreath is going outside, hit the whole thing with a good coat of poly just to help ensure it holds up.

That is all for now-carry on!

    Very cute project! Might have to try that next year. The dogs look like the jury is still out on their opinion!

    I got to this late since everyone in my house was down with the flu. I couldn’t accept defeat so I dragged myself to the new Papa Murphy’s Pizza place and bought two heart shaped pizzas for Valentines Day. That was all she wrote!
