Paper Heart Wreath Tutorial for Valentine’s Day

Paper Heart Wreath Tutorial

Pin it here.

 

Here’s a fun project I did with the Bible club girls this past Friday. It’s simple and sweet!

Supplies needed:

  • 8 ½ x 11 red and pink heavy cardstock
  • stapler
  • paper-cutter
  • ribbon

 

1. Cut strips of paper 1″ wide and 8 ½” long using a paper-cutter. You will need 4 pink and 4 red strips.

2. Fold each strip in half and cut along the crease.

3. Layer 4 strips of paper as pictured. Two pinks sandwiched between two reds.

9. Continue this pattern until you are finished. Your heart chain should look like this.

10. Connect the two ends to form a circle. Shape the red and pink strips to form hearts. Then staple together. {This step is a little tricky, so you may need to help younger crafters.}
