Valentine Paper Heart

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.
