- Select a piece of cardstock in a colour of your choice.
- Place a ruler on the card and use a pencil to lightly mark every 1 inch along the edge of the card.
- Then, draw straight lines across the card connecting these marks. These lines will create strips that are each 1 inch wide.
- Use a pair of scissors or a craft knife (if you are comfortable and it’s safe to do so) to cut along these lines, creating individual strips.
Repeat with Different Colored Cards:
- Choose additional cardstock colours according to your preference for the wreath.
- Repeat the process of marking, drawing lines, and cutting to create 1-inch strips from each colour.
- The number of colours and strips you need will depend on the size and fullness you want for your wreath.
Folding a Strip into a Heart Shape:
- Take one of the strips and fold it in half to find the midpoint.
- Unfold it and then bring the two ends to the centre crease you just made, forming a 'V' shape at one end.
- Fold the ends down and bring them to meet at the bottom point of the 'V', creating the top curves of a heart.
-Adjust the folds until you are satisfied with the heart shape.
Securing the Heart Shape:
- Once the heart shape is formed, use a stapler to staple at the bottom point where all the ends meet.
- This will secure the heart shape.
- Ensure the staple is firmly in place and not obstructing the overall heart shape.
Arranging the Mini Hearts:
- Lay out all the heart shapes you’ve created in the order you prefer.
- You can create a pattern with the colours or arrange them randomly, depending on your design preference.
Stapling Hearts Together to Form the Wreath:
- Start attaching the hearts together by aligning the edges of two hearts and stapling them where the points meet.
-Continue this process, adding hearts one by one and stapling them together at the points until you form a complete circle or wreath shape.
Cutting the Twine:
- Take a piece of twine and measure a length that’s long enough to hang your wreath.
- Cut the twine with scissors. The length will depend on where and how you plan to hang the wreath.
Attaching Twine to the Wreath:
- Tape one end of the twine to the back of the wreath at the top.
- Stretch the twine across to the opposite side and secure the other end with tape.
- Make sure the twine is tight and secure so that the wreath can hang properly.
Final Touch - Hang the Wreath Up:
- Once the twine is secured, your heart-shaped wreath is ready to be displayed.
- Hang it on a door, wall, or any place of your choosing to add a decorative touch.
