Creations, Ribbon Heart

Here is a super thrifty, fast and easy, DIY that anyone can do


silver ribbon heart



All you need is a wire coat hanger and some ribbon or fabric strips…

Untwist the neck and use your hands or pliers to bend and shape into a heart.  You can keep the hook or straighten the wire and wind it around the top part of the heart.  Either way, once you add the ribbon it will be concealed

I found this ribbon 75% off after Christmas, but you can also use strips of fabric, an old sheet, just about anything





Cut a bunch of 12 inch ribbon pieces or fabric strips


coat hanger heart


Tie them onto the wire in 1/2 knots

Endless possibilities here… add red for a traditional Valentine look, or black,  for sexy drama… pure white would be heaven for a baby’s nursery, or make one using the bride’s colors  for a shower or wedding

I loved the plain silver, but decided to add the pink and sea green chevron ribbon

    What a festive Valentine’s wreath and easy DIY Jenna! I *heart* the idea for a wreath for the door for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner!

    Such a good idea, Jenna, and an actual craft I think I can do!! I especially like the idea of hanging a wreath on the back of each dining chair. Thanks for sharing this! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  5. Jenna, I am not a very good crafter, but I think I can manage this sweet heart wreath! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love this, Jenna! I’m all set with the hanger from making a heart wreath out of my pink pom-pom scarf. After Valentine’s last year, I put the scarf back in my closet. I’m actually wearing the scarf today. So, the “hanger heart” is empty and waiting for this perfect wreath…and I have scraps from a lavender sheet that was ruined in the laundry, and I used a huge block for the bed skirt I published recently. I don’t normally leave links in comments, but I want to personally invite you to Meet Me on Periscope tomorrow morning. I hope to see you there!

  7. This is a great idea and I must say looks easy enough that could do it! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Jenna, that’s cute and very easy looking! Thank you for sharing.
