A Wooden Heart Shaped Wreath
You can find this at the Dollar Store for less than five dollars. There are many colors to choose from and you can have fun. Make sure that the heart is a wood or plastic base. We want to easily weave small lights through out the heart and we need a sturdy heart to hold in the lights.
Buy a small pack of tiny lights from The Dollar Tree or The Dollar Store. For under $3, you can choose what color of lights you want for your craft. Note that different color lights will have a different effect on your craft. A different light color can completely change the look of the heart so have fun with the light color! In the pictures, we picked a simple white light. They also have blue, red and yellow.
If you do not have a hook on your front door, you may want to use a plastic hook to attach to your door to hang your heart wreath.
If your heart wreath does not come with a ribbon, just add any ribbon of any color that you like. Let your creativity shine!
STEPS To Your Heart Craft
- Take the small lights out of the packet, slowly weave the lights inside and out from the right hand side of the wreath to the left hand side. Be sure to put a light on in every section so each side of your wreath shines equally and you have no dark spots.
2. Carefully turn the heart craft over and secure the battery pack on the back of the heart craft. Try to place the battery pack inside of the heart so the pack does not stick out. Put in the AA batteries and close the pack. You’re almost done!
3. If it is not already there, tie a ribbon from the top of the heart wreath in a hoop so it could be hung.
5. Turn on the batteries and enjoy! Your wreath is beautiful.
