Did you know you can buy Christmas bulbs now at 75% off? Stock up on some for this gorgeous Valentine's Day heart wreath. It's so cute that you can even use this year round!

Go grab those clearance Christmas bulbs and check out how you can make this fun wreath!

What you will need:

Christmas bulbs (about 55)

16” heart frame


Hot glue gun & glue sticks

This is the heart frame I used. You can find these at the Dollar Tree. They come in two different sizes so I chose to use the large one asthe frame wires are closer together which makes this project easier.

Begin by adding one bulb to each side of the heart frame. Use lots of hot glue to stick them on.

Then, continue glueing the bulbs around the wreath. I did use the high temperature on the glue gun for this process. I added the glue low on the bulbs so you wouldn't see it from the top.

Then I made a bow to add to the wreath.

I also hung some hearts from the wreath using twine.

Now, finally tie some twine to the top at the back from the first bar to the other side bar. This will make sure it's straight when you hang it up. Watch the video below for more details and tips.

Part 1: How to glue the bulbs on.

Part 2: Making the bow and finishing the heart wreath.

I just love how it came out! I can use it for Valentine’s Day or change the bow and use it all year round.

Let me know if you give it a try!

    I call these ornaments not bulbs. Bulbs are the ones on an electrical cord that light up

      Just to educate you that is not correct you’re referring to a LIGHT BULB. I’m referring to a bulb ornament

    Very pretty.

    One suggestion - before attaching the ornamental balls to the frame, hot glue the metal hangar collar to the ball. I had to do that with my Christmas wreath because the balls would fall off with the slightest breeze.

    Good job.
