Valentine Paper Heart

Pin It




If you can make a paper heart out of a strip of paper then you can make this heart wreath. I know I saw this idea some where...probably Martha Stewart. Here is my version.

Construction Paper cut into 1" or wider strips
glue
paper clips or clothes pins
small hole punch or awl & string to hang it

Leave a comment if you don't understand. I'll try to clarify for you. Now I skipped most these steps after the first few hearts. Once you get the hang of it you can just go ahead and fold, glue attach & clip as you build your chain.

Fold strip in half / glue outsides together

run a glue line across each edge / pinch top to base of heart and paper clip together until dry

Glue the base of each heart into the top of the next heart / paper clip / make 2 equal length chains.

Glue together at base / paper clip. Glue together at top to form heart. Glue one final heart to top / paper clip. Punch hanging holes in outer hearts ( I punched them in the top white hearts.) String floss or ribbon to desired length & hang.

Hey Kim,
I love this craft idea... I'm going to try it with the boys although I know it will start out with all of us doing it and then slowly it'll just be me... I'll send you a picture of it when it's done.

I love your craft blog... it's awesome idea to share!

Give hugs and kisses to the girls,
Leah
