You’ll love this bow wreath!
I love a simple wreath. Well, let’s face it, I love pretty much any kind of wreath. Wreaths are my favorite. But there is something so pretty about a simple wreath. So this Valentine’s Day I wanted to create a simple, pretty bow wreath. And I thought it would be fun to combine the texture of satin, along with a polka dot print in this Bow Wreath!!
So here is my Satin Bow Valentine Wreath. I love it’s simplicity and under-statedness (is that a word???) I also think it would be a pretty wreath to put in a little girl’s room or a nursery!
And another fun fact about this wreath is that you can switch out the bow. So in case you want to use it for a Spring wreath, you can add a yellow or tuquoise bow later for a completely different look!
This is a less than 1 hour project.
Here’s how to make your own Interchangeable Bow Wreath:
1/4 yard of material for the bow
1/2 yard of material for the wreath
Hot Glue, Glue Dots or Pins
- Cut your wreath fabric into 4-inch side strips
- Wrap the fabric onto your wreath form, gluing or pinning the strips onto the back so the fabric looks continuous on the front of the wreath.
- Then create the bows. There are three different components in the bows. The first is the back part of the bow. I took two pieces of material and cut out a long strip with the ends with two points. I sewed those pieces together and left an opening at the center, so I could flip the material through. The center of the back will be covered up by the front part of the bow.
- The second part was the front part of the bow – which is basically a big rectangle. I folded the rectangle together until the sides touched each other, with the right sides facing inwards. Then I sewed the edges together at the top and bottom. Then I flipped the inside out so the right sides faced outwards.
- Then I sewed a 4 inch tube of material for the center of the bow. Once that was done, I wrapped the center of the bow around the large rectangle and the outer edges of the bow, making a bow shape. And then I hand-stitched the back of the bow to the center to keep the bow shape in place.
And here’s another simple bow wreath I made a few months ago – I still love it!

I love this wreath, and I love how it is neutral so you can switch it up! So creative. the color combination is beautiful.
How did you hang it?
Thnaks so much! On the back of the wreath, I hot glue a little length of ribbon, with a dab of hot glue on each end, so I could use it to hang the wreath up!
