Make a fun pink and red heart wreath that says “I love you!” This is a fun and easy valentine craft, and you get to use paper straws!
I had amassed quite a large collection of straw last year when I decided to make this craft. Yep – I’m one of those people. Every time I’d visit the store, I’d see a box of paper straws in some color that I needed to have. They were just calling my name!
I realized I had enough red and pink to make a valentine craft, and that’s how this wreath was born. It’s a pretty easy craft so you can make it with children (though you’re definitely going to want to operate the hot glue gun).
It also uses Mod Podge Sheer Colors AND glitter. How can you lose?
Paper Straw Heart Wreath
Gather These Supplies
- Wood heart plaque
- Mod Podge Sheer Colors – Pink
- Red, White acrylic paint
- Tissue paper – white
- Paper straws – red and pink, one box each
- Thickers adhesive letters
- Silver glitter
- Hot glue gun
Use your Mod Podge Sheer Colors to decoupage down the tissue paper squares. Look at the tint it adds to the project! Paint red around the outer edge of your heart plaque and let dry.
Once that was done, I used hot glue to adhere my straws to the back. I did have a bit of a snafu – I wasn’t putting them on correctly, so I had to cut a little heart template out of the tissue paper to help me! It might help you, too.
