Today we’re sharing an easy spiral flower heart craft. We typically don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day, but this was such a fun project to make, and depending on the colors you use, you could leave it up all year long.
This project is part of the 2016 Valentine’s Day Blog Hop hosted by Creatively Homespun. At the end of this post, you’ll find 19 more fun Valentine’s Day themed ideas so be sure to stick around and check them out.

We created a template for the heart simply by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting it out. We also made 3 different size circle templates to make the flowers.
We lightly traced the heart onto the canvas using a pencil to give us a guide for placing the flowers. We then cut a bunch circles out of the card stock, making sure to do different sizes of each color.
Next, we made the flowers. Taking each circle, cut into the end and cut a spiral into the center, leaving a small portion at the center to act as a base to glue your flower together and sit flat.
Once all of your spirals are cut start curling the end of your spiral. We used our round nosed pliers to help with the curling. Just start at the end and keep curling until you get to the center. Then let go of the spiral and it will unravel a bit to form your flower.
Next, pick up a flower and pull back that little center portion. Put a little glue on the center portion with a glue gun, then gently push all the spirals onto the glue. Try to make sure all the spirals are touching the glue so the flower holds together nicely.
Once all your flowers are glued together you’re ready to hot glue them to your burlap board. We started with the three largest flowers and filled in from there. Try to make sure you don’t have too many of the same color right next to each other. It’s best to move the flowers around and get a good idea of where you want them to go before you start gluing.
After the heart was complete, we wrapped jute string around the left side of the panel and tied a little bow on it. And lastly, we traced the word Love onto the bottom right corner and painted it in with white craft paint.
