Valentine’s Day Heart Wreath Tutorial

by katie

Today, I have an awesome little tutorial that you can do in no time to jazz up your home for Valentine’s Day. It’s even simple enough for children, however, I suggest adult supervision. I chose to place these crafty hearts into a wreath, but they will look awesomely fabulous as a decorative banner, too!


This craft is super easy and can be made with things you might already have in your home.

Supplies:

  • Stapler
  • Construction Paper or Cardstock
  • Ruler
  • Craft Knives/Tools (Thanks DIY Lifestyle Magazine!)
  • Scissors
  • Colored Paper Clips or Glue

How to Make the Heart Wreath:

First, lets start off by cutting the papers into strips lengthwise the width of the ruler like pictured below.

You’ll need 6 pieces of paper (2 of each color) for each heart. This wreath required 11 of each color to create 6 hearts.
Take whichever color you decide to start with for the inner heart. I opted to use pink. Place two pieces on top of each other and staple at one end. Pull the pieces apart and bring down. This will cause a loop in the paper and give you your heart’s arches. I made this the smallest of the hearts so I trimmed the excess paper when I had the right size. I temporarily stapled this heart together so I could move onto the red heart. I continued to do the same for the red one and positioned it over the pink one, trimming it also to size.
You may need a helper to hold them together while you get the white one going or you could staple the red to the pink. I had the best helper ever! In the picture below, you can see how she’s holding both hearts together.
Once you have the white one in position, it should look something like this. Staple all three hearts together and continue making hearts until you’re done. (You could either remove the staple placed in the pink heart or leave it. It doesn’t matter though.)
When your hearts are done, arrange them in a wreath form. I used paper clips to hold them together for an easier alternative. You can barely see them! 🙂 You could glue also. It took roughly a half hour to complete this project once I got going and my daughter loved to help. 🙂
Here’s the finished look!
Stay in the loop!

I love this. I made some hearts like this with my students, but we didn't make them into wreaths.
