Make a heart paper wreath

Craftvalentinesheart

Share the love and have fun creating this easy-to-make paper wreath. It’s a great project for kids to try too! For a quirky spin on the idea, get colourful with mint and silver paper instead.

You could use this garland as a centrepiece for a romantic dinner. Sprinkle the table with rose petals, put the paper wreath in the middle and set the mood with candles.
