Valentine Heart-Shaped Wreath

Valentine Rose Wreath

To make a Valentine’s Day heart-shaped wreath you will need:-

1 heart-shaped oasis

50 dried or fresh rose heads in a colour of your choice

ribbon to suspend the heart from


Tie a ribbon around the centre of the wreath and secure with a bow.

With a sharp pair of scissors simply cut the dried or fresh rose stalks to 4cm from the rose head and insert into the oasis until no area of the oasis can be seen.

I do have an alternative method just for dried rose heads, using a coat hanger and a pair of tights!  This post is entitled Heart-Shaped Christmas Wreath, and was filed in December 2010.

David Austin Rose Jubilee Celebration

For something really special that doesn’t cost the earth why not spoil your loved one with a rose plant from the rose Guru, David Austin.  David Austin, is one of Britain’s premiere rose breeders offering over 900 varieties of english rose.  He also supplies incredible floral bouquets too. 

If you particularly like the fragrance of rose, do try Jo Malone’s English Pear and Freesia scent which has a base undertone of rose.  This beautiful fragrance is available as a scent, bath oil or scented candle.

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and my husband’s favourite treat is clotted cream fudge.  Burley Fudge is a wonderful company based in the New Forest producing gourmet fudge for even the most discerning fudge lovers!!!

Happy wreath making!
