Valentine’s Crepe Paper Ruffle Wreath

Does anyone else feel a little let down after taking down all the holiday decor? I was in a total “funk” last week missing all my Christmas decor and just not feeling creative or inspired at all.  I knew I should get started on some Valentine’s Day projects but had no motivation.  Then, yesterday, my sweet husband took my boys outside to play in the snow and I had a glorious few hours of solo crafting time.  I found a roll of pink crepe paper in my office hoard and was inspired to make this cute little ruffle wreath and am head over heels in love with how it turned out! This bright pop of pink was just the thing to snap me out of my winter blues and get me pumped up for Valentine’s Day!

Before you start, get comfy because it’s going to take a bit to finish the wreath-I actually took about two hours to make mine but I was making some sweet treats at the same time so I was crafting in the kitchen in spurts-it would be faster if you didn’t stop and start like I did.

Start by cutting a pile of strips of crepe paper between 8-10 inches long.  Accordion fold the crepe paper in a fan shape as you see above.

When you get to the end of the last bit of the wreath tuck the last pieces under the first sections.  Pat yourself on the back for making such an easy and beautiful wreath!

  2. I LOVE that wreath, such a cute idea. I hate the look of the house when Christmas decorations are taken down. I am also the mother of 3 boys (all a lot older than yours). They tease me a lot about all the decorations I put up for Christmas but I know they expect it too. Thanks for sharing.
