Paper Heart Wreath Craft Template
Hearts are such a cute and fun shape, it seems every child just loves them! I know mine do.
The hearts can be tricky for little hands to draw, so our template provides them for you. Every heart will be just the right proportions! The cutting and gluing required are great fine motor practice, and choosing colors is a lesson in design.
I know when we get started making any type of craft, my kids don’t want to stop! If that happens to you, we’ve got you covered. For more Valentine themed crafts, check out the Heart Stitch Craft or the Heart Handprint Craft!

Not quite ready to join our email list where we share free and paid products and fun ideas? That is ok! Purchase the template below!
- Use a store-bought wreath base or cut a round wreath base out of cardstock
- Select different shades of pink and red colored craft papers for the heart wreath. The template includes several different sizes of heart shapes, use as many as you like. Trace the heart shapes on the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely.
- Select two hearts of different sizes and colors. Fold the smaller heart in half vertically and unfold it again. This will leave a crease and both sides of the heart cut-out will be lifted up.
- Attach the creased small heart to the middle of a different-colored larger heart. (Optional – add another, even smaller heart to the top for an extra layered look)
- Repeat the previous two steps to create more heart patterns.
- Arrange the heart patterns on the wreath base with the points facing the middle of the circle.
- Use craft glue to attach the hearts to the wreath base.
- Fill the entire wreath base with heart patterns.
- Attach a ribbon loop to the backside of the wreath base to complete the craft
Tips & Tricks
- Let your child choose the colors. They don’t need to be limited to red and pink.
- Precut the hearts for younger children whose scissor skills aren’t yet refined.
- Use a glue stick if you’re worried about a mess
- If you don’t have any card stock, cut the wreath base out of a cereal box and paint or color it with markers
Celebrating love is so much fun! Use the heart templates from this craft to make piles of hearts and use them to encourage loving acts of kindness!
Each time your child does something nice for someone else they can collect a heart or leave a heart for their family member to find. Or you can just hide the hearts all over your house and send your kids on a heart hunt!

Glue the small heart in the middle of a colored big heart shape.
Prepare more heart patterns. You can add 3 layers of hearts for each heart pattern if you want to.
Start to arrange the paper heart patterns on the wreath base. Apply craft glue to attach the hearts on the wreath base.
You can keep the pointy edges of the hearts towards the center of the wreath base to make them fit nicely on the base.
Fill the entire wreath base with the heart patterns.
Attach a ribbon loop on the backside of the base to complete the Paper Heart Wreath.
