Hearts, hearts, hearts. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love ’em. My daughters do too, but it’s one of those chicken & egg things – I’m not sure if they naturally like them or if I’ve influenced them to like them. Regardless, we do a whole lot of crafts and art around here with heart shapes. Last week, Little C and I made a book page wreath and it was her idea to make it into the shape of a heart to display on our mantel for Valentine’s Day coming up. I never thought I’d be working on a Valentine’s Day mantel design, but the fact that Little C loves V-Day so much makes me excited for a lovey-dovey mantel too!
One of my goals this year is to shoot more video tutorials, so Little C and I filmed ourselves making this wreath, and it’s my first video on my brand spanking new YouTube channel! Yes, I finally figured out how to make one of those. Hooray for accomplishments! I’ll try to post a new video each month, so please don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments below which tutorials you’d like to see in video form. I defintely want to re-do my infinity scarf video tutorial as well as make a video on how to make these baby slippers.
For this heart shaped, fluffy book page wreath, you’ll need:
- a piece of cardboard big enough to cut out the wreath base (I used two that I glued together)
- a stack of pages ripped out of an old book (approximately 9 x 5″ size)
- a glue gun
- a TON of glue sticks
- ribbon or lace to hang the wreath
That’s it! Now, here’s our video tutorial on how to easily make the wreath. I hope you enjoy it & thanks for watching!
