This rainbow paper heart wreath is much easier to make than you might first think. Start by cutting long, narrow ribbons from colored paper and tie the two ends together to make hearts.

The first photo of the collage above illustrates the necessary material, namely: peat or recycled paper bucket, a small florist foam cylinder, a pair of scissors and an office stapler, glue, a paper straw, two cupcake boxes, a colored sheet of paper and an adorable photo of the child. Some kind of ballast (pebbles, multicolored sugared almonds, marbles, etc.) will also be useful.

The first step in its realization is to cut the floral foam to fit inside the cup. Then draw or paint a large flower on the colored paper, cut it out following the outlines and attach it to the paper straw using the stapler as if it is its stem. On the other floral side, staple one of the boxes and glue the cut-out round photo in advance in its center.

As an option, kids can paint the bucket in cool colors to make the result more fun. Finally, assemble all the elements you have already made by simply inserting the straw into the piece of foam and hiding the latter with the second white cupcake box. Don’t forget to add the “ballast” that will hold your photo holder upright, and you are ready to surprise mom for her party!
