I thought I would get a little bit festive this year for Valentine’s Day and put my crafting skills to the test. I decided to make a paper heart wreath. This was very simple and didn’t take long to make at all.
What you will need:
How to make the paper heart wreath
- Choose your card stock. I only had solid colors but patterns would be super cute. Make sure to your paper has either the print or color on both sides. I chose to use a pink and white. The 12 x 12 card stock makes for easy cutting.
- Cut your paper into stripes that are 2 x 12. I cut a total of 8 stripes, 4 of each color.
- Fold your stripes in half, then curl the ends together to form the heart shape. Use your glue dots to glue the ends together. Use 2 or 3 glue dots.
- Lay your hearts in a wreath shape on the table to get them arranged properly. When you have it arranged the way you like it, use the glue dots to join the hearts together. Use about 2 or 3 glue dots.
- Once you have your hearts glued together, it is time to add your ribbon. Cut your ribbon to the desired length. There is a couple of ways to attach your ribbon. I fed the ends between the glue dots and tied a knot. Another way you can attach the ribbon is by using the glue dots.
Now you have a completed wreath! I thought it turned out super cute and was fun to make. This would be great activity to share with your kids as well.
