A Valentine Wreath Kinda Thing...

Pin It

I really wanted to make some kind of Valentine wreath, but I didn't want to make another paper wreath.  So a kept trying to come up with some other kind of cute wreath not out of paper, but in the end I decided to use paper and not wreath.

It was really fast and easy.

To make one you will need seven 12X12 scrapbook papers. 4 for the white layer, 2 for the heart layer and 1 for the dot layer.

You will need to cut the papers into strips.  Four 7X12 inch strips for the white, four 4.75X12 inch strips for the heart   layer, and two 2X12 inch strips for the little one.

Fold them accordion style.  It is best if you flip the paper over so it is wrong side up and then fold it up.  Like the accordion up on its side.

Tape the back side together...

so they look like this.

Push the middle down and hot glue the centers.

Then I glues the yo yo things together, glued a cupcake paper to the stack, and then I glued a cute little thing in the middle.

To finish it off I glued a cute little bow to the front to hang it with.

I like that is it not your average wreath.  When my husband got home from work I asked him if he thought it was cute or if it was weird.  His response... "Can it be both?"  I guess I good with that. :)
