Article Body:
Valentine's Day is the day that we honor those whom we admire, our
boyfriends, girlfriends, and spouses. There is probably no other holiday
as full of excitement, romance, and sentimental value as Valentine's Day.

Reserved as a special day for our sweethearts, many people choose to add
home décor and furnishings to surround themselves with that sentimental
meaning behind Valentine's Day. You can create a homemade Valentine
wreath that can last from year to year and be proudly displayed upon a
wall or over the fireplace. There are many different crafts that have
patterns and you can easily find a pattern for the hobby of your choice.

First you will need to determine your hobby. Do you knit or crochet? Do
you like to work with clay? You can even create a gorgeous Valentine's
wreath simply by sewing and stuffing hearts together. You can cut out a
nice red heart patterned material and stitch hearts together. You can
also use various textured fabrics such as satins and silks, and use
pastel shimmery colors.

If you knit or crochet, you can find a heart shaped pattern and use rosy
colored yarns to create luxurious heart wreaths. You may find a pattern
that is made out of many hearts assembled into one heart shaped wreath,
or one large heart that is knitted or crocheted out of plush yarn.

One of the most popular materials used for creating a Valentine Wreath,
is the grapevine heart wreath. This wreath is made out of grapevines and
the vines are washed, soaked in water until they become supple, then
twisted into the wreath shape.

You can easily purchase a grapevine heart wreath at our local craft and
hobby store, or if you have access to grapevines, you can wash and shape
them yourself.   If you have other vines available, you can also try
using them.

After you have either purchased or created your wreath, you can then
embellish your Valentine's wreath with any item you choose. Equipped
with a glue gun and your decorations, you can then beautify your wreath
according to your liking.

If you are a sentimental person, you can choose to use items such as
pictures from cards, or other items and hot glue them to the wreath.
Little hearts, fabric cutouts, and small cupid figurines can add a lot of
beauty to your wreath.

So whether your talent is sewing, knitting, crocheting, or using a glue
gun, you can make a beautiful, personal and very sentimental Valentine's
wreath to treasure for years to come.
