Paper Curls Valentine Wreath Paper Curls Valentine Wreath

A wreath covered with paper curls bursts with Valentine's Day color and spirit. Lovely over a mantel or on a door, this valentine wreath is easy to construct.

Tightly wrap 1x6-inch strips of patterned paper around a pencil to curl. Glue the end of each curl into a loop. Hot-glue the paper to an 8-inch foam wreath form. Repeat until the form is covered. Lightly brush liquid adhesive over the paper curls, and sprinkle with glitter. Print a Valentine's Day sentiment on patterned paper, back it with a felt circle, and add a white stick for a paper lollipop embellishment.
