The feast of Saint Valentines Day is fast approaching. I thought this year I would like to make something fun with the kids to decorate the house. After the Christmas decorations come down each year the house feels a bit empty. So I thought why not make a fun wreath with the kids. So I came up with this super simple but fun craft. The best part is that it helps the kids learn their scripture verses too. I used a black and white printer but if you have access to a colour printer your craft could be even prettier!
Items Needed for this Craft:
- 1 piece of regular paper and 4 sheets of coloured construction paper
- Pencil Crayons or markers
- Print out of these sweet free scripture valentines cards from Country Charm by Tracy
- optional (stickers)
Step 1: Gather all your supplies and print out of these sweet free scripture valentines cards from Country Charm by Tracy
Tip:I enlarged the cards before printing them, so that they we easier to read.
Step 2: Cut out your Valentines scripture cards
Step 3: Fold a piece of regular paper in half and then fold it in half again. Draw half of a heart (approx. the size that you want your hearts to be but keep in mind large enough so that the scripture cards can still be glued on. Tip: you can place half the scripture card on the heart to make sure it will fit.) and then cut it out. You will have two hearts – test to make sure the scripture heart fits in the heart to give it the effect you would like.
Step 5: Glue the hearts together so that they form a circle/wreath.
Step 6: Glue one Valentines scripture card on each heart.
Step 7: Let your child decorate their Saint Valentines Day Wreath with sticker, glitter, markers, etc
Step 8: Admire your child’s wreath, hang it up and then read the scripture verses together.
My kids had a blast making their own wreaths. We have hung them on the same wall as our Saint Valentines Day Scripture Verse Count Down craft!
It is easy to make and looks sweet on the wall.
