Paper heart wreath D.I.Y!

Recently I’ve been into crafts/D.I.Ys and I’ve found that doing them has kept me relaxed and calm. I’ve just finished this ‘Paper heart wreath decoration and it was super easy to do and it looks really cute so I decided to share it with you guys!

Step one – Choose some different paper with patterns that you like, I just used some wallpaper samples that I picked up from my local decoarting shop.

Step two – Cut your paper into strips! I did mine about 11 inches long and 2 inches wide. The amount of strips you cut depends on how big you would like your wreath to be. I did 10 but I only used 8 as I only wanted a small wreath.

Step three – Fold your strip in half.

Step four – Bend in the top 2 pieces to create a heart shape and glue it into place

Step 5 – Repeat this with each of your strips untill they are all glued into a heart shape. Leave them to dry for around 5 minutes.

Step six – When all your heart shapes are stuck into place and have dried, glue them together on the top corners of the hearts.

Step seven – Repeat step six untill all of your hearts are stuck together forming a circle shape.

Step eight – Tie some yarn to the top of your wreath, looping it through two of the hearts so it hangs evenly. Hang it on your wall, and you’re finished!
