Who remembers our heart-shaped topiaries from a few years ago? Well today we have a brand-new design for you that I absolutely adore. Instead of using copper wire, Meagan used some natural vine wire to make these crepe paper heart topiaries. The leaf pattern is also very different and less uniform, giving them a bit more life and character.
Along with our leaf pattern, we have a video tutorial for you to watch below. If you have any questions, just ask!
We heart these topiaries
Although we made these crepe paper heart topiaries for Valentine’s Day, I like the idea of using them as year-round home decor too. Personally I’m going to put them in my kitchen! But they would also look beautiful in a living room, dining room, or home office
To get started on this project, check out our tools and materials list. Then download our SVG file or printable template. Each download includes the leaf pattern and a heart to help you shape the vine wire once you have glued your leaves on.
Because there are so many delicate pieces and little leaves to cut, we recommend using a Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 for this project. However, you can always cut your crepe paper by hand using our template. If you are using scissors, keep in mind this will make it more of an intermediate project, whereas with a cutting machine it will be a lot easier to make.
Crafting tip: Once you’re done crafting your crepe paper heart topiaries, you can make them different heights by simply cutting your vine wire shorter. We always like a little variety, but this part is up to you!
