Craft Difficulty Rating: Average

You Will Need:

  • Paper plate

  • Ribbon

  • Pipe cleaner

  • Construction paper

  • Foam letter stickers

  • Decorative items such as buttons, sequins, beads, etc.

  • Scissors

  • Glue

  • Pencil

  • Hole punch

Instructions:

  1. Trace a heart in the center of the paper plate with a pencil. Have an adult cut out the heart by poking a hole in the center and cutting around the shape of the heart. This is the basic design for your wreath.

  2. Glue a piece of construction to the bottom of the plate over the heart, so that it fills the cut-out area.

  3. Add decorative items to the wreath by gluing them down. I used beaded hearts, but you can make it look any way that you like.

  4. Using foam letter stickers, spell out "I Love You" on the bottom of the wreath.

  5. Make a bow out of ribbon and glue it to the top of the wreath.

  6. Make a hole with a hole punch and string a pipe cleaner through to make a loop to hang the wreath.
