I have a special guest today sharing a fun, Valentine’s Day craft for kids of all ages – an Origami Heart Wreath. My daughter is an origami ninja and when she heard I was looking for a new idea for a Valentine’s Day Wreath, she volunteered and started folding an assortment of origami hearts. She then created her Origami Heart Wreath. Whether you’re crafting with one or a group or a troop, this is a fun Valentine’s Day craft for kids of all ages!
To make an Origami Heart Wreath, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” wreath
- Origami papers, 6” and 3”, in assorted colors
- Acrylic craft paint in pink
- Nylon thread or monofilament
- Glue dots
- Tools needed: Scissors; stiff bristle paintbrush; craft pin
To make an Origami Heart Wreath:
- Paint the outside and inside edges of the wreath and let dry.
- Fold 15 Easy Origami Hearts from the 6” square origami papers.
- Following the same tutorial, fold nine Easy Origami Hearts from the 3” papers.
- Arrange your hearts on the wreath, and attach them to the wreath with adhesive dots. If needed, fold additional large or small hearts.
- Optional: Fold an Origami Heart with Wings. Cut a 6” length of nylon thread or monofilament. Tie one end of the thread around a straight pin, and tape the other end to the back of the heart. Insert the pin into the top, inside edge of the wreath. Add a dab of glue to hold the pin in place.
- Knot together the ends of a 3” length of ribbon. Pin and glue to the back of the wreath for a hanger.
Thank you for the tutorial! This is the second tutorial my daughter has shared with Crafts ‘n Coffee. A few years ago, she also shared her Peeps Summer Beach Party Wreath. Most recently, my daughter worked hard to create the directory pages that make it so easy to find new and favorite crafts and decor, no matter what the occasion.
Can you believe it’s already February? And almost Valentine’s Day? Standing in line at my local craft store yesterday, I realized that I was buying supplies for Valentine’s Day, Easter, July 4th and the fall season! Not to mention the Mardi Gras ideas I’m mulling over (and may not have time to share). What? You do that, too, right?
