Valentines Day Craft: Valentines Wreath

Now that Valentines Day has come and gone, what are you to do with all of those lovely, heartfelt paper expressions of admiration that we call valentines? Make a wreath for next year!

This super simple project will help preserve the sweet messages you’ve received, while putting you way ahead of the game for next year’s Valentine’s Day decorating:

Repurposed Valentines Wreath


  • Valentines.
  • Scissors.
  • Glue or tape.
  • Paintbrush and craft sealant (optional).


  • Use the valentines you or your grandkids received this year (or buy boxes of valentines on sale post-holiday), and cut them into heart shapes. You can cut out the design, the message or both.
  • Cut heart shapes of various sizes. You may want to first cut some heart shapes out of construction paper and then use them as templates.
  • On a flat surface, turn hearts face down and arrange into a wreath pattern.
  • Once you are happy with your wreath shape, use tape or glue to secure the hearts to one another.
  • For extra reinforcement, use a paintbrush to cover your wreath with a glue sealant (i.e., Mod Podge). Let dry.
  • Flip over and seal front side of wreath. Let dry.
  • Store for next year!
