Gluing the paper to form the heart shape

To form the first heart, put a dot of glue on the end of one strip of paper. Sandwich a second strip on top. You can go ahead and do this with all the strips ahead of time to make assembling the wreath easier.

  1. I’m not going to let my 9 year old use a hot glue gun, and I hate using one myself. So I’m going to find another way to put this together–maybe a permanent glue stick or something.
