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

To add on the flowers (again, to make the paper daffodil flower click here):

  1. Start with your first flower and wrap the stem around the circle as many times as you can go. I left about 1″ space between the flower and the circle so that later I could adjust the flower to go whichever direction looked best.
  2. Add in your second flower and wrap it in the same way.
  3. Keep on adding until they are evenly spaced around. I used 9 daffodils for mine.
  4. To fill in the empty spots, I cut out leaves (with the grain of the crepe paper going vertically) and then glued them to the stems of the flowers.
  5. Style the flowers by bringing one a bit above the circle and the next a bit below. Rotate around the whole crown so it looks more natural. Don’t be afraid to adjust the heads of the daffodils so that they face the direction you want them to go.

Now you’ve got a Valentine’s paper flower wreath (or a Valentine’s crown!) to make the holiday festive.

I have to give a big shout-out to Trisha Zemp who has been such a joy to collaborate with. Thank you!
