Have any red or neutral colored Christmas ribbon? 🎁

If so, grab a wire hanger and make a CUTE heart shaped wreath for a quick Valentine’s Day decoration! I noticed this pretty burlap style ribbon with red berries on it purchased around Christmas in my ribbon stash and decided to try and make a heart shaped wreath with it! ❤️


DIY Wire Hanger Heart Wreath

Supplies Needed:
  • Unravel a wire hanger. Shape it in a heart with the middle of hanger being the point at the bottom of heart, and the ends making the top of heart.
  • Weave ribbon using one end of the hanger, making large ruffles. I kept my “ruffles” about every four inches or so.
  • Move the ribbon down the wire and continue the ruffles all the way down the entire heart. For a fuller effect, use lots of ribbon and push it together so you can’t see the wire.
  • Note: It’s hard to know exactly how much ribbon I actually used since the roll was already over halfway used, but I’m guessing maybe 12-15 yards?
  • Reshape the wire into a heart if needed and use pliers to twist ends of wire hanger together. Manipulate ribbon so you can’t see any of the wire.
  • Hang wreath by tying additional ribbon to wire on each side of heart.


I LOVE how this wreath turned out!💘

It was about a 20 minute easy project, and FREE since I had the ribbon.

Money Saving Ribbon Tip: Around the holidays, Costco has amazing prices on high quality ribbon such as the one pictured, about $6.99 for 50 yards! I like to stock up by buying neutral colors and use it all year round for gift wrapping and craft projects. A nice bright white ribbon goes with most wrapping paper!

    The dollar store has heart shaped wire wreaths too

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

    So cute! I’m such a visual learner. Does the ribbon have a hole in it and you just put the wire through it? Wish there was a video, I would love to do this!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      The ribbon I had on hand was more like a burlap material that the wire went through easily. A red burlap ribbon would be awesome as well for this. 👍

    Joan Crawford would hate this wreath. 😉

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      LoL yes she would.

    Lina, I’m very grateful for the post. It was exactly what I was missing. Just created my own wreath and it turned out great. Wished I could post a picture. I had already purchased a book from my hubbies favorite pastor and a couple pair of socks. So I will write on the charcoal board “I love you from your head to your toes” and hope it will make him smile.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh my gosh so cute! You’re quick and so thoughtful 😀

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great idea! And jealous I didn’t get one! Lol Have fun 👍👏

  14. Kaylan

    Love this! I got like 20 rolls of large ribbon from one of the michaels grab bags. I was wondering what I should do with all this ribbon. This is perfect! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

    I bet this would even be cute with strips of crumpled newspaper instead of ribbon, for a super-thrifty version. Possibly spray paint it when done to give it a little extra structure and color/sparkle.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh fun–I also think leftover strips of burlap fabric too! Thanks for stopping by.

  16. Kristi

    Wow Lina! What a creative idea, yet inexpensive and cute! I bought this exact same ribbon at Christmastime, so I guess I know what I’ll be doing today! Lol….Thanks so much for all your great ideas and recipes!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ah yay! Thanks so much Kristi! ❤️
