A heart wreath is the perfect way to decorate for Valentine’s Day. Plus, it’s really fun too. This project does involve scissors and a stapler so make sure all your little crafters are being supervied.
What you will need:
- construction or scrapbook paper
- yarn or string
Start by cutting your paper in long strips. Thickness is up to you. Be sure to cut each strip the same size. One strip will make a single heart. Depending on how big you’d like your wreath to be, you’ll need anywhere from 10 or more strips. But keep in mind, the bigger the wreath the more floppy it will hang.
Once your strips are cut fold each in half. Make sure to press on the fold to make a good crease.
After all the strips have been folded, bend the 2 ends inward to create a heart shape. Grab your stapler and connect the 2 strips. Tada, you’ve just made your first heart. Continue making hearts until you’ve reach the amount you want. When you are overwhelmed with all those hearts, begin to staple them together. Place them side by side and staple at the top and the bottom.
Continue around until you have the size you want and connect to make a circle of hearts.
Connect the other end of your yarn or string a few hearts next to it. And that’s it. Find a fun place to hang your wreath. We ened up with some really big wreaths! We had to make one into a heart garlin.
Kid’s love to decorate for holidays and this is an easy and inexpensive way to do just that.
