Happy Valentine's Day!
This is a simple project, just staple 2 paper strips of card stock together at the top, flipped over to form a heart, then add another 2 strips below. Repeat. I cut my 8 1/2" x ll" card stock into 1" strips. Find colored card stock here -->> You will need card stock in any color. Make your wreath all one color or several colors in a pattern.
Create a heart with 2 strips.
Keep adding hearts until you have created a long strip of connected hearts then wrap them around to create a circle. Staple the bottom to the top to create a wreath. You can make the wreath as large or as small as you need!
This is a beautiful heart wreath that can be made in any color for any occasion!Use all different colored card stock including metallic for a beautiful Valentine's day wreath.Make simple heart ornaments by creating only one heart and hang it from a string. Hang them from a tree, a chandelier, or add them to a wreath.

    How do you keep this from drooping and forming a huge oval instead of a nice circle?

      You could glue this to an embroidery hoop, for 1 idea.

      they are about 8” x 1”. A regular sized piece of card stock or construction paper cut into 1” strips.

    What is the strip shown in the first direction step, that seems to be holding the two loops together?

      Hi Nancy,

      That one is just a heart ornament, not part of the wreath. I took a small strip of cardboard with a hole punched in it and put a paper loop on either side to form a heart.
