Valentine’s Day Decorating & Valentine’s Wreaths

Hello winter and hello Valentine’s Day! The beginning of the year can be a bit gloomy, but there’s no better way to perk up your spirits and your home than with Valentine’s Day decorating, and of course that includes stunning Valentine’s Day wreaths! We have lots of Valentine’s Day decorating ideas that will help fill your home with love, so get ready to take some notes!

Valentine’s Day Decorating Ideas: It’s Not Just About Romantic Love!

First, it’s important to reinforce that Valentine’s Day does not have to just be about romantic love. Around here, we like to celebrate love in general; love of friends, love of family, and spreading love and good cheer around the neighbourhood. We’re all about spreading the love around!

When you decorate the exterior of your home, you’re spreading love and friendliness to those in your neighbourhood. And when you decorate your home’s interior, you’re making your home feel more welcome and festive for your guests, but also for yourself. Don’t underestimate the psychological power of a beautiful home for you and your family. When you decorate for different holidays, you’re telling yourself that YOU are special enough to go the extra mile for, and that’s because you are! Seasonal decorating is a wonderful and often underestimated type of self care. It says: YOU ARE WORTH IT!

What Would Valentine’s Day Decorating Be Without Roses?

Roses and chocolate are synonymous with Valentine’s Day and, frankly speaking, we don’t think you should be without either! That’s why our ALL IN ONE UITC™ Signature Rose Kits are so perfect for Valentine’s Day! Hang a gorgeous DIY rose wreath on your door or give it as a gift made with your own two hands. Our kits are so fun and easy; you’ll get beautiful results every time!

We have a classic Red Rose, which is just so gorgeous. The red pops at a time of year where we really need more colour in our lives! We also have Yellow Rose and Winter Rose wreath kits available. Each is absolutely beautiful in its own way and will look terrific on your door, hanging on a fence or gate, or in the interior of your home.

If you’ve never made a DIY wreath before, our kits are perfect for you as they make the wreath making process so easy! Plus, the rose wreaths are just as beautiful for Valentine’s Day as they are for spring. In fact, you can enjoy these roses all year round and we promise you’ll receive lots of compliments on them. They’re just so popular! We send everything you need to make a stunning wreath right to your door, along with easy-to-follow instructions. And of course, there’s a video to refer to that shows you exactly how it’s done!

Valentine’s Day Decorating: Choose Your Colours & Materials

When brainstorming Valentine’s Day decorating ideas, remember to think about both outdoors and indoors. While a beautiful Valentine’s Day wreath would certainly look marvellous on your front door, wreaths aren’t just for outside! You can definitely hang a wreath in any room of your house. And a trio of wreaths can really make an impact!

The traditional colours for Valentine’s Day decorating are red, pink, and white. Don’t be shy about using generous amounts of white to offset your red and pink decorations. With the right amount of white, you can balance the entire design and really make your colours shine. A little bit of glitter, silver or gold, or even a bit of purple can also do wonders to elevate your red and pink decorations!

One of the keys for making your Valentine’s Day decorating come alive is to choose the right crafting materials. We’re big fans of various kinds of mesh, which can add a lot of volume and depth to your home decor. And don’t be shy about introducing some ribbon to your decor! These wreathing materials will add a fullness to your wreaths and other decorating that will make your finished creations look very lush and opulent.

At Unique in the Creek, we carry a variety of carefully hand-picked crafting and wreathing materials that Laurie chooses herself. Everything in our store is picked for a reason and you can be sure that Laurie gave it thought before she brought it into the shop. Click here to browse our selection now.

Valentine’s Day Wreath Ideas

Some of the best wreath boards for your Valentine’s Day wreath designs are the UITC Large Wreath Board and the UITC Character Board. Choosing the right board will give you a base for your creations and make the wreath making process so much easier and more streamlined. Once you’ve tried a UITC Wreath Board, there’s no turning back! These boards make wreath making so much better. You’re going to love them!

The Large Wreath Board is the base for our roses and many flowers. If you order an All In One Wreath Making Kit you’ll receive a Large Board, or you can buy a Large Board on its own to start making your own unique creations.

The Character Wreath Board is also a popular option because you can affix a decal to the centre that includes a message, image, or greeting. This makes the Character Board a great option for many holiday creations. Click here to browse our Valentine’s Day accessories like decals, centres, and also wreath signs. (Wreath signs are also perfect for attaching to the Large Wreath Board.)

Here’s a beautiful example made on the Character Board –

You can also do something super fun and creative using the UITC Triangle Wreath Board like this Valentine’s Day gnome wreath!

In addition to beautiful DIY Valentine’s Day wreaths, you can also make a stunning centrepiece for your table. The UITC Small Wreath Board is the perfect base for a centrepiece. You can really let your imagination and creativity run wild to make something beautiful for your table!

Important Tips for Wreath Makers!

Hello, wreathers! This post is a long time coming. We have some very important tips for wreath makers so this post is for you…

If you’re an aspiring wreath maker, there are some really important tips we want to share with you. Whether you’re making wreaths as a hobby or you’re running a small wreathing business, there are things you should know about. So pull up a chair and let’s get serious for a few minutes. 

The fact of the matter is, you are creating beautiful, unique designs, and when you share beautiful things on the internet, there are always going to be people out there who are ready to steal them and claim them as their own. It’s a sad but true fact! It’s one of the realities of the internet and social media, so as creators, there are some steps you should always take to protect yourself. 

Watermarks & Copyrights on Wreath Photography 

Let’s talk about watermarking your photography. It’s super important that you add a watermark to your photos before posting them anywhere on the internet or social media. Your name needs to be visible on your photo, preferably blocking some of the actual wreath design. 

After having our wreath photos stolen several times, most recently by a company that tried to steal both our photos AND our entire UITC™ patent-pending wreath board making system (for real, it’s infuriating and exhausting), we’ve taken the watermark one step further and we’re now adding a copyright notice on each photo, along with our name. It might interfere with the view of the wreath in the photo but our goal is to make sure that no one steals it, and the copyright directly over the wreath is the most effective way to prevent stealing. 

Even in a private Facebook group, though people outside of the group can’t see your post, anyone in the group can download your photo, re-upload it themselves, and claim your design as their own. So you want to put your watermark/copyright on everything you post on social media, no matter what. This rule applies anytime you’re sharing your photos anywhere that feels safe—like on a private forum—in addition to times when you’re sharing your photos more publicly. Be cautious everywhere you share!

How to Add a Copyright/Watermark to Your Photos

There are free tools and apps like Canva that can help you with your watermark/copyright, and a lot of them are available for use on your phone. You can use a soft, slightly transparent white or gray to overlay onto your photo. Of course, you still want to be able to see the wreath, but the text should be clear enough to give you the proper credit and to prevent theft. Run your photo through one of these tools/apps before you upload it to the internet to make sure you’re covering your own back. 

Photo Tips for Wreath Makers

Now let’s also talk about the photography of your wreaths. We see so many beautiful wreaths every day, but a lot of them are not being done justice to by the way they are being photographed. The biggest culprit is dim lighting, although a flash on your camera is not the answer to this. A flash makes shadows and colours look very harsh and is not flattering to your creation. And dim lighting just makes it impossible to see and appreciate your work. 

The best way to photograph your wreaths is by positioning them near some natural light. The easiest way to do this is to take your wreaths outdoors, but if you can’t take them outdoors, put them near a window to take the photograph. Make sure that the light is illuminating all parts of the wreath and watch out for shadows. 

The background that you use behind your wreath is also important. A solid-coloured door or wall in a neutral colour works best, or a plain wood background can also work. Just remember; the darker the background, the more important it is that you’re using natural lighting on the wreath. 

Get to know the camera settings on your phone. Phones have pretty amazing cameras these days so you can probably take a very good photo with your camera phone with a little practice. Every phone is different. Have a look at the settings to make sure you understand your phone camera’s capabilities. Google your phone details to get a full understanding of what it can do. For most phones these days, you should be able to find some helpful free tutorials on YouTube that can teach you how to maximize your camera settings and take better photographs. 

Lighting & Post Production Tricks

Even if you’ve taken a pretty good photo, you can take things one step further to make the photo look clean, fresh, and professional. If you’ve ever noticed how nice and uniform some Instagram feeds look, it’s often thanks to the purchase of lighting presets. 

In the last few years, some photography pros have started to offer special lighting configurations that you can add to your photography to make them look more professional. There is usually a one-time cost to access these presets and then you follow the steps on your app or phone to improve your photos. This is how you can start to get a magazine quality or “editorial” look to your photos. One example is 123Presets. You’ll see that they offer a wide variety of lighting “looks” that will brighten and refine your photography. Another easy app that’s designed more for selfies but can also add finesse to your wreath photos is the Lensa app

Earlier we talked about the risk of theft, but it’s actually great to have your wreaths shared on social media… just as long as you’re getting the credit! The more beautiful your photos, the more people will be attracted to your creations. Whether you’re selling wreaths or making them as a hobby, the right kind of appreciation in the form of sharing, likes, comments, and pins is well deserved. Protect your work so that no one claims it as their own and take bright and beautiful photos so that you can enjoy all of the attention you deserve!

Facebook for Wreath Makers

You know we’re big fans of Facebook in a lot of ways. We’ve built a huge community there with over 38K of you joining us on our Facebook page and we love to stay updated with you there! But in other ways, it’s not actually the best platform for wreath makers. (And don’t even get us started on Facebook’s constant changes!)

Sharing your photography on your personal Facebook profile means that your privacy settings determine who can see your content. Certainly share your photos with your friends, but don’t expect the reach to go too far. Maybe that level of intimate privacy is okay for you, but once you’ve put your watermark/copyright on your photos, don’t be afraid to share your creations more broadly!

You can reach a much broader audience for your wreath creations on Facebook if you have a “page” or share in a group. We encourage you to share your creations in our Facebook group so we can see them! Our group is very supportive but it’s still always better to be safe with a watermark on all photos. As long as you are supportive and friendly, we invite you to join!

Instagram Tips for Wreath Makers

Let’s also talk about Instagram for a moment. Instagram is a great place to showcase your work. It can even act as a bit of a portfolio for wreath makers, provided you have a public account rather than a private one. Make sure to use lots of hashtags so that people who would be interested in seeing your work can find it. Here are some of the hashtags that we use: 

#UITC #uniqueinthecreek – use these whenever you use our boards!

Also: 

#Imadethis #makersgonnamake #wreathsofinstagram #wreathmakersofinstagram #wreath 

#DIYwreath #wreathmaking #wreathing #wreathmakers #wreaths #wreathmaker #wreathdesigner #wreathdesign 

#homedecor – and specific hashtags related to the holiday or season

#DIY #craft #crafting #homedecor #DIYhomedecor #oneofakind #OOAK #handmade #craftersofinstagram #decomesh #decomeshwreath #diyproject

Since you can use up to 30 hashtags on Instagram, you may as well use lots of them to widen your exposure. And be sure to always tag @uniqueinthecreek on Instagram when you use our boards so we can share your work in our Stories! (We just can’t share images from private accounts because of the way the privacy works, but still tag us so we can see what you’re doing!)

There’s a lot more you can do with Instagram to be seen, like using stories, IGTV videos, and Reels to broaden your reach. But we don’t want to overwhelm you so that’s a topic for another blog post.  

Pinterest Tips for Wreath Makers

Have you ventured into the world of Pinterest? If you’re not posting your gorgeous wreath creations on Pinterest, you’re missing out! Pinterest is like a non-stop 24/7 candy shop for crafters. It’s a great place to show off your work!

When you create a pin with your beautiful photo that’s been watermarked, always be sure to add a descriptive title. Then be sure to also include a thorough description of your wreath. Our Pinterest specialist, Courtney, recommends that you add four hashtags (optional) with additional details, for example: #wreath #ChristmasWreath #ChristmasDecor #crafting. 

If you’re selling your wreaths and you have a website, put in a link that leads to your listing (this is your URL) to drive customers to buy your beautiful UITC wreath creation! We have a lot more to say about Pinterest so stay tuned for a whole blog post dedicated to wreath maker tips for Pinterest coming in the new year!

Bringing It Home

A quick mention about Twitter. This platform is less for creators and more for news but it still has a nice wreath community. On Twitter, you get a maximum of 280 characters in total. That’s not a lot of text but you can squeeze in some of the same hashtags we’ve mentioned above for Instagram and Pinterest to help your work be seen.

So there you have it folks, some of our most important tips for wreath makers for protecting your work and getting it seen safely on social media. And remember, while you’re here you can pick up all of you’re wreath supplies here. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch via info@uniqueinthecreek.com

Decomesh: Will the Fray Ever Stop?

Decomesh is an amazingly versatile waterproof plastic-based material and is one of the biggest industry design materials in the wreathing world. Decomesh comes in hundreds of colours, textures, sizes and styles; it is literally one of the most adaptable tools a wreath maker has and it can be used to create just about anything one can imagine. At Unique In The Creek™ the majority of our wreath designs are made using some form of decomesh and while it isn’t the easiest material in the world to work with, we love using it and have prepared tips for making the most of your decomesh by preventing fraying on your edges and completed designs. 

As with any project you undertake, preparation is key. One of the most important steps in creating a gorgeous wreath is making sure you’re ready to create. Have a plan, have your supplies and materials pre-cut and neatly organized, ready to attach to your board / frame. Because decomesh is a weaved material, the less you handle it, once it’s been cut, the better. Now, I know that sounds impossible but, if you have the steps and materials for your creation prepared ahead of time, you know exactly where your decomesh is going and the positioning; hence cutting down handling time. Think hot potato!

One of the most important tools for any wreath maker is their scissors or rotary cutter. A sharp cutting tool is simply a must have; not only will it cut down on accidents from dull tools slipping, it prevents sloppy edges on your decomesh ensuring clean lines with precision cuts. Sharpness is perhaps the biggest factor in reducing fray while preparing decomesh, the duller your tool, the more uneven the edges of your decomesh will be and the more they will fray. We’ve prepared a video on how to cut decomesh with a rotary cutter HERE.

Another practice that has become quite popular in the wreathing word is burning or melting the egdes of decomesh to “seal” them altogether. While these methods are guaranteed to completely prevent decomesh from fraying, they are not without issue. Burning / melting methods, because they are using a source of heat, produce toxic fumes as you are basically burning plastic. It is an absolute must that you use some sort of ventilator if you choose these methods and complete the burning / melting in a well ventilated area. We recommend using the bag sealer method at UITC™, this method melts the edges of your cut decomesh to seal it and prevent fraying, we have prepared a video on using one safely HERE.

Another way you can prevent fray is to “hem” the edges of your cut decomesh. That means folding over the cut edges and sealing them with glue or some sort of adhesive that will keep the edge of the cut decomesh from fraying. This method works wonderfully for sealing decomesh but, it is time consuming and can be visible if you are not extremely careful with the amount of adhesive you use in the “hem”.

Last but certainly not least, the quality of the decomesh you purchase is also imperative in preventing fray. Basic deco polymesh will fray more as there is less material in the weave to keep it together. Higher quality or premium decomesh will have more material woven throughout it and that alone will help with fray prevention in keeping the edges together once they are cut. Not to mention, better quality mesh produces a more polished finished wreath.

Decomesh is one of our favorite tools despite its challenges! We hope you’ve found this information helpful, we can’t wait to see what you create! Happy wreathing!

The best Christmas crafting for adults always leaves you with a feeling of deep satisfaction with the gorgeous results of your efforts. 

What’s great about DIY Christmas wreath making is that it’s both fun and easy with just the right amount of cleverness and surprise.

Because some things should really be fun for adults too, right??? Christmas Wreath Making is one of those things!

You’ll find videos on upcycling  paper gift bags for decoupaging on our character board, decomesh prep and cutting tutorials and a full tutorial on all the Petal Techniques Laurie uses!

Value Mesh – this is a more economical material with a loose weave. It frays a lot but, it comes in a wide array of colours and is perfect for rustic flowers. Because of the loose weave, if you are using this with our boards, you should double it up to prevent the board from showing through or prep your board with a like coloured spray paint. This mesh is perfect for Ombre Designs as the layering of colours hides the loose weave. It is also waterproof and durable. Sometimes it can be a little stiffer but, it will hold shape well. This mesh is great for ruffles, cruffles, poofs and curls.  It also works well as a filler to add color, with added ribbon tails and bows.  And this mesh works great for Flower Designs that use folded petals like the Startrek PetalGerbera PetalCarnation Petal.   

Border Mesh – this is a value mesh that has a border around the outer edges, it comes in a wide array of colours and multiple colours in one. It is best suited for making ruffles, it is not an ideal material for flowers or for poofs. Not ideal for petals designs because of the border but, works well in a Ruffle Petal for our Christmas Tree, or a Carnation. It’s also great for Character Board Designs

Foil Mesh – this is a value mesh and is best suited to poofs ruffles, cruffles and curls. It is not ideal for flowers unless you seal the edges or use for a layered design like the Ombre Flower Or Sunflower.

Two Tone Mesh – this mesh can be value and it is best suited toward Ombre Flowers and Roses. It doesn’t usually come with foil and it will say two tone on the package. It is a great way to give colour and dimension for Flowers.   Orange/gold is perfect for fall flowers and pumpkin wreaths and blue/green is perfect for Lighthouse and Beachy wreaths and Peacock designs. The apple/moss green most popular for leaves, it adds life like dimension. Can be sealed in various ways.

Wide Foil Mesh – this mesh is metallic and the foil is double the size of regular foil mesh.  This mesh can be sealed but the foil will have to be cut manually, it will not melt. It is not suitable for flowers as the main material but it is great for poofs, ruffles, cruffles and curls. 

Wide foil mesh in matte – the stripes in this mesh are dull, it is not shiny but offers great coverage. It isn’t a value mesh but, it is a lower priced mesh for the quality. This mesh can be sealed and it makes gorgeous fall roses. We also love it in the Gerbera and Daisy flower design. 

Deluxe Foil Mesh – UITC™ Favourite! This mesh is a very showy mesh, it’s very sparkly all over.  It is all foil and has no gaps in the weave, you can even skip a row on the rose design it’s so full.  This mesh is more pricy so you don’t want to cover the mesh. This mesh is not suited to poofs, it is ideal for the Rita Petal and in one of Laurie’s favourites. It doesn’t seal well due to the foil but, it is durable with not fray a lot. It makes beautiful Poinsettias and is very popular with the Rita Petal design, the sunflower petal and the poinsettia petal. It is available in a wide variety of colours, solids and pattern designs are available. 

Poly Jute Mesh – this mesh is plastic and has strips of burlap running through it. It is best suited to rustic designs, it has no foil and is not sparkly. It is available is a wide array of colours. This mesh can be sealed, you have to cut the burlap parts manually. Natural is most popular, it has a burlap look. Great to use as a wreath base, poofs, ruffles, curls and cruffles. By adding ribbon tail bows with attachments/signs it is great for the UITC Scarecrow, pumpkins and Autumn décor inspired wreaths. It is available with stripe and wide stripe color patterns as well as some with metallic stripe patterns.

Fabric Mesh – UITC™ Favourite! Laurie loves this one for Roses! This mesh is very poplar right now, it really will work for any Flower Design. It’s expandable, soft and bonds well. It is very similar to poly jute with a much tighter weave. It can come with foil and does not seal well, it tends to get stuck and frays really badly. It is available in a wide variety of colours and metallic options. Overall it has beautiful color saturation. Popular in yellow for Sunflowers and red for Poinsettias, works great for poofs, ruffles, cruffles and curls. Also available as stripe fabric mesh or buffalo check fabric mesh. The main difference being the direction of the jute that runs through the mesh.  Stripe is more of a straight line and check looks more like a square pattern.

Snowball Mesh – this mesh has snowballs or rounded balls within the mesh weave pattern. This mesh is not completely solid.  This mesh comes in a wide variety of colours. White is very popular with the snowman and Mr And Mrs Claus Designs on the UITC Character Board. It’s perfect or poofs, cruffles, ruffles and curls.

Snowdrift Mesh – this mesh is similar to snowball mesh, the snowballs are connected all the way around the mesh and it is more solid.  This mesh is very popular in the winter time and makes gorgeous winter Flowers and the UITC snowman and mr and mrs clause designs. It is a very pricey mesh, you can alternate with another mesh of he same colour to save money in designs where you use this mesh. You can heat seal this mesh and is available in a wide array of colours. 

Tinsel Mesh – this is a value mesh and can have a border strip of tinsel at the ends or throughout.  You can seal it, cut the tinsel manually if it doesn’t quite melt. It’s not an overly popular mesh but, it has a lot of great uses and is easy to work with. Full tinsel mesh has the fuzzy tinsel foil running all the way through the mesh usually as a strip or stripe pattern. It’s great for poofs, ruffles, curls and cruffles. This is a great mesh for Halloween Designs. Tinsel border mesh has the fuzzy tinsel strip on the ends and is a newer mesh not readily available but the most common right now is the halloween colours with fuzzy tinsel.

Poly Deco Mesh – this is a plastic mesh.  It is cheaper than poly burlap and has a tighter weave. It seals well with various methods. It is similar to regular value mesh but, is a much better quality. It’s available in lots of colors and is a very popular mesh. It can be used for petals, poofs, cruffles and ruffles. Great for your base mesh in your wreath and adding ribbon tails, bows signs and attachments. It is great for most petal folds and Flower Designs.  Some of the lighter colors are thinner, consider doubling your mesh or adding an extra row of petals.

Poly Burlap Mesh – this is a plastic mesh that is very thick, has the burlap look but is plastic and waterproof. It also seals well and sealing is recommended, as it frays very badly.  After your flower is finished it is highly recommended to also seal your flower by spraying with clear gloss sealant krylon or rustoleum brands are popular. This gives extra protection from the color fading. This mesh is most popular with the UITC Sunflowers and is perfect for the sunflower petal, Dean Michael Petal and the Rita Petal and is popular with the Sara Flower as well. We do not recommend this mesh for roses as it is too thick. It comes in a variety of colors and is available in a few patterns. However, at certain times of the year and during holiday seasons poly burlap is very hard to find in specific colors and sells out very quickly.

Metallic Net Fabric Mesh – this is a brand new style of mesh, it’s very light weight and will not fray. It is available in a wide array of colours but, it’s only in 9.5” instead of 10. It’s very shiny and would be great for a Christmas Tree on the Triangle Board

Poly Burlap Check Mesh –  this is a large poly burlap weaved mesh. Similar to window pane mesh and is a little pricey. It is very thick and durable and the weave resembles a wide basket style weave. It seal well using various methods and is gorgeous as an accent petal in the Sara Flower design.

Window Pane Mesh-  this is very similar to poly burlap check. It’s a little less stiff and is a cheaper version of poly burlap check mesh. 

Burlap Deco Mesh-  this is very similar to poly jute mesh.  It has the burlap look with jute running through the plastic. It is a softer look and look and is very popular in the Denim Blue. It’s very hard to find this mesh in metallic and it does not seal well.  Good for poofs and ruffles but it frays really badly.  This mesh comes in solid colors, checked colors, wide and thin strips and buffalo check pattern.
