- Cut a piece of baker’s twin and make a loop with it. Use tape or glue to secure the loop to the back side of the Valentine wreath, in the top center.
- Punch out the picture of your child’s face with a 2.5″ circle punch.
- Use the glue to secure the child’s photo in the middle of the heart.
- Begin gluing the conversation candy hearts around the photo until all the space is full. Let dry completely.
That’s all there is to it!
This Valentine craft is so simple and if you need to adapt it to even younger kids (think toddlers or preschoolers), you can have the cardboard hearts cut, painted and ready to go.
You can also choose to skip painting the cardboard heart and just leave it brown.
If you’re a teacher and you’re planning on making this heart wreath in your class, it would be an adorable Valentine’s gift for the kids to send home to their parents!
If you’re a parent and you are helping the kids make this Valentine craft, I’m certain Grandma and Grandpa would love getting one too.
Either way, it’s a fun craft to occupy the kids and get their creativity flowing.
