It is the month we celebrate LOVE! Love is in the air. Love is in the flowers. Love is in the chocolate! Chocolate always says, “I love you!”
I saw this wreath on Pinterest and thought I would make one to decorate my door with. I will have to use it inside because it is so light the slightest wind will blow it off the door, and then Mojo will think he has a new chew toy.
He would not feel the love if he chewed up my wreath!
God gave us a Valentine’s.
Isn’t that great!!!
You could make this wreath with either scrape material or paper. I used scrape material, so I will give you the directions for that. If you use scrape paper just use mod podge to glue it onto the cardboard.
- Some scrape material or paper
- Heat bond (if using material) or mod podge (if using paper)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- cardboard (any thin cardboard will do. I used a tissue box, cake mix box and a white gift box.
How To Put It Together
Make heart patterns out of scratch paper. I made three different sizes.
Apply Heat Bond to material following the labels directions.
Trace the hearts onto the Heat Bond the cut out hearts.
Lay the cut out hearts on the cardboard. I positioned mine down before I took the paper off the back to see how many I could get on the box.
I really cheated this next step. We happened to have had pizza (frozen) for dinner the night before, so I used the circle piece that came under the pizza. I laid a large plate, as best I could, in the middle of the cardboard and traced it. Then I cut out the center circle to make the wreath. If you don’t have a pizza circle, you can use a large piece of cardboard and popcorn bowl and large plate to make your circle. It there is a bend in the cardboard, be sure to brace it with duck tape so it won’t bend and break the hearts off the finished wreath.
It’s a great project to do with kids or grandkids! Have fun making yours!!!
