Lots of Love Valentine Crafts

 

Valentine’s Day is starting to creep into our minds.

Our thoughts are turning to Valentine’s parties and decorations. Our mouths are watering over thoughts of chocolates and candy hearts.

Today, I’ve steered my thoughts toward two tissue paper Valentine crafts.

Tissue Paper Valentines Day Heart Wreath

It all began with some lovely pink tissue paper flowers.

I cut my tissue paper into 10″ x 6″ rectangles and created stacks of 4 sheets of paper.

Begin folding your tissue paper like an accordion. Trim the ends into rounded curves and create a small slit on each side of the tissue paper “fan” that you’ve created. Don’t cut all the way through…just a small cut on each side.

You can use floral wire to twist around the center of the tissue paper. It will hold it together. The last step is to carefully pull each sheet of paper apart. The paper stands out and creates the look of a flower.

I made several of these lovely tissue flowers and began attaching them to a heart made from a wire hanger.

The result is a gorgeous pink tissue paper heart!

I hung my heart from a mirror in my living room. I added a cute red and white polka dot ribbon hanger.

 I had a few extra flowers so I decided to add a little “Valentine” to my kitchen.

 Because I have three windows, I was able to hang a flower in each window.

They are too cute!

I love red and pink and Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to use them both!

Creating paper flowers is an easy and quick craft. They can be used in so many ways. They can be used for holidays, parties, baby showers, weddings…and Mondays!

So grab your crafting supplies and start creating!

Happy soon-to-be Valentine’s Day!

    Beautiful!! Can you tell me exactly how you attached the flowers to the wire form? Did you use the wire that you used to make the flower?

      Thanks Angie! Yes. I just made sure that the wire tie was long enough to wrap around the wire hanger too. You could also use garbage bag ties. Have a great week.

        I used floral wire when I created the flowers and left the ends long enough to tie and wrap them around the heart shaped hanger. Hope that helps. Have a great day!

    These are fantastic! They remind me of paper crafts I used to do with my Grandmother when I was a little girl :-) I’m definitely going to make them, thanks for sharing!
