Valentine Paper Heart Wreath
Just for the love of paper crafting... I made this fun Valentine wreath for inside my door. It occurred to me that I always have festive holiday wreaths that I see only for those few seconds when I am running through the door. Inside wreaths are holiday eye candy and less calories than the Valentine's chocolate I am anticipating from the hubby!
Begin by cutting 36 strips of double sided paper 2"x12".
Choose which side you want to face out and then glue the ends together, gently molding/pinching into a heart shape. Repeat 36 times! You can use stick glue or adhesive however, if I was doing this again I would choose hot glue.
Adhere 5 hearts together to form a "flower."
Make 6 "heart flowers"
You will have 6 single hearts left over for filling in at the end.
Lay out the "heart flowers" and adhere the tops of 2 hearts together.
Continue around the circle until all 6 "heart flowers" are connected.
There will be a space between each "heart flower"
Adhere a single heart in each of those spaces.
Add a heart embellishment to the middle of each "heart flower".
Run a ribbon through the top 2 hearts and tie a bow.
Happy Valentine's Day!
