How to Make a Tiny Hearts Wreath

This sweet little wreath is all you need to dress up a door or wall.  It is super simple to make using a recycled cereal box to make the form.

The hearts were made using my free pattern:

Materials Needed:
  • A cereal box or similar box for the cardboard heart form
  • Tiny crochet hearts (I used red, light pink, hot pink, and white--8 to 10 in each color)
  • Scissors
  • A hot glue gun
  • Ribbon for hanging
  • Packing tape

How to make your wreath:

First, cut out your form.  You can free hand it or here's a special tip...if you are a Cheerios fan, their box has a heart shape on it for you!  

Now fold your heart shape in half (don't worry about the crease, it will straighten out when everything is glued together), and cut along the inside of the shape (about an inch or so).  Now you have your form!

Now start gluing the hearts on, making sure to overlap them as shown as to not leave any cardboard showing.  Also make sure to mix up the colors for the best looking effect. 

There, all done!  Now time to attach the hanger...

I took some heavy duty packing tape and attached a piece of ribbon to the back. (you can see the cereal box here too--Cheerios!)

Now you have a beautiful handmade wreath for your door...I hung mine on an interior door in my house, as not to expose it to the elements.
