Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day “Wreath”

Eco-Friendly Valentine's Day Wreath

You all know that I love creating “wreaths” from picture frames, so why not apply the same concept to a Valentine’s Day wreath?

What you will need:

1. An empty picture frame

2. Book pages or other recycled paper

3. Scissors

4. A pink crayon

5. Tape

6. Twine. If you can, use hemp twine.

How To Do It:

1. Using your recycled paper, cut out triangles to form the “love” bunting. I cut mine exactly how I cut mine in the Happy New Year Banner post.

2. Write the letters “l-o-v-e” on each triangle.

3. Then, color each triangle pink.

4. Attach your triangles to your twine using glue or tape. Again, please check out the Happy New Year Banner post to see how I attached them.

5. Tape your twine to your frame, allowing the triangles to hang.

6. You can also cut a large heart out of your recycled paper to add to the bottom.
