Weekend Fun: Heart Wreath!

Weekend Fun: Valentine Wreath!
February is International Friendship Month, and what better way to celebrate than by welcoming your friends and family with a heart wreath? Hang it on your door, make some hot chocolate, and cozy up with a good book about friendship like the beginning reader classic Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel, or Kate DiCamillo’s Newbery Honor book Because of Winn-Dixie in which a young girl discovers new friends because of the dog she rescued. Take a walk in the Hundred Acre Wood with Pooh and his friends in the classic Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne.

Extend the fun with a hearty craft!

How to Make a Heart Wreath

What you need:

  • 1 paper plate
  • Assorted scraps of paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon

What you do:

  1. Cut out the center of the paper plate, leaving just the outside rim. TIP: Fold the plate slightly and make a snip in the center to start.
  2. Punch a hole in the paper plate rim. TIP: If you don’t have a hole punch, poke a pencil through to make a hole. Put the plate on a mouse pad to make it easy to poke through.
  3. Thread the ribbon through the hole and tie it off so that you can hang the wreath when it’s finished.
  4. Take a scrap of paper and fold it in half.
  5. Starting near the top of the fold, draw a large letter “C” that ends in a point at the bottom of the fold (see photo below).
  6. Cut along the “C” line.
  7. Unfold the paper and see a heart!
  8. Make lots of hearts in different sizes from different papers.
  9. Glue the hearts around the rim of the plate, overlapping sizes, until the rim is covered with hearts.
  10. Hang the wreath on a door in your house.
