Valentine’s paper flower wreath

Valentine’s Day is creeping up, so you know that I’m going to exploit it with as many crafts as I can muster over the next few weeks. Though I’m all for a holiday that promotes love, I’m a little less into the idea of the mushy and romantic parts and more into showing people that you care. In fact, wouldn’t it be helpful to give the world one big giant Valentine? “Wait…note to self…how to make a giant Valentine to give to the world…”

You’ll Need:

  • Scissors
  • Wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Crepe paper in shades of pinks and whites
  • Daffodils
  • Glue gun

Instructions:

 To make the circle:

  1. Form a circle with your wire. I sized it to the shape of my head and then allowed about 5 extra inches.
  2. Wind these 5 extra inches around the circle shape many times.
  3. Cut a piece of crepe paper about 1″thick and about 3′ in length going against the grain of the crepe paper. I had mine folded so it would go faster (see pic)
  4. Stretch out the crepe paper with your thumbs all the way down.
  5. Glue the end of the paper around each other to start it and start tightly winding around the wire.
  6. At the end, glue the end piece tightly.
