Valentine’s Heart Wreath

This Valentine’s heart wreath makes a really cute homemade Valentine’s decoration.  We made ours for our Great Grandma Nell, so she’d have a special Valentine from her great grandkids.  It’s simple to make.

You need:

  • colored card stock (we used light pink, hot pink, red, and white)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • a hole punch
  • ribbon
  • markers

Heart Wreath Instructions:

Start by free hand cutting ten hearts, about 2-3 inches tall.  We cut out one that we liked the shape of, then used it as a guide as we cut out the others so they’d all be identical.

Heart-Wreath-(1)

Arrange the hearts in a wreath pattern with the points facing inward and glue them together.  You can reference the sun pattern that is formed in the middle to help you get them even and properly angled.  Let it dry.

Then use a hole punch to make a small hole at the center of the heart that you want to be at the top of the wreath.

Heart-Wreath-(3)

Place a ribbon through the hole and tie it off to act as a hanger for your heart wreath.

Heart-Wreath-(5)

You can hang up it just like that if you’d like,

Heart-Wreath-(6)Or, you can make it extra special like we did by writing what you love about someone on each heart and then giving it to them for Valentine’s Day.  There’s an awful lot to love about our Great Grandma Nell.  We gave it to her early so she could hang it up in her cottage and enjoy it for all of February.
