Grab a few basic supplies from your craft stash to make this cute scrapbook paper heart wreath for Valentine’s Day!
We aren’t too big into celebrating Valentine’s Day, but I still enjoy decorating a little for the holiday! I love seeing the pops of red & pink around the house, especially since it’s been so dreary around here lately. And this fun, little scrapbook paper heart wreath definitely adds a little cheer to our kitchen!
Way back when, I used to do a lot of scrapbooking, and I still have a weakness for buying cute paper even though I don’t get around to scrapping as often as I would like. So I’m always on the lookout for fun projects that I can make with scrapbook paper…that way it gives me a reason to still buy it!
This paper heart wreath is a quick project, especially if you use your Silhouette or Cricut to cut out the hearts. It is always a fun project that the kids can help make! Or even have them make a smaller scaled version for a Valentine’s Day craft project.
Scrapbook paper heart wreath
- scrapbook paper in a variety of prints and colors
- Silhouette Cameo or Cricut
- heart template (if you don’t have a cutting machine)
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- chipboard or cardboard
- 3D pop dots (optional)
Start by drawing a large circle on a piece of chipboard. Then draw a smaller circle inside to create the wreath form. I like to use a bowl for this part to help draw circles. Otherwise I end up with oblong shapes or ovals.
Cut out the wreath form and set aside.
Now to make the hearts. I used my Silhouette to cut out different sized hearts from each piece of scrapbook paper. You could also use a cookie cutter to trace hearts or print out different sized hearts to use as templates.
Once all of the hearts were cut out, I started placing them on the wreath form to get a sense of how I wanted to set them up before actually gluing them down.
I decided to go with a base of the largest sized hearts and then add smaller hearts on top in clusters to create my wreath. Using a dab of hot glue on the back of each heart, I started filling up the wreath form.
And to give the wreath a little bit of dimension, I used some 3D sticky dots to make a few of the smaller hearts pop out.
Once I had all of the hearts glued on, I attached a loop of ribbon to the back of the wreath. A super simple project that can be personalized with different colors and prints, or even shapes!
