This turned out really cute, and was so simple!
I've seen ornaments hung like this around the holidays, so why not hearts for Valentine's day. To make it a little more crafty, and to add some small motor skills to the project, we made snowflakes from the cut out hearts.
What you need:
Construction paper (we used pink and red)
Yarn or ribbon
1. Cut out squares from the construction paper - 1 square for each heart, we did 4
2. Stack the squares on top of each other and fold the pile in half, then cut out the heart shape (making half a heart so that when it's unfolded, it will be uniform) - now all of your hearts should be the same size and shape.
3. Fold each heart in half and then edge to edge to form a cone like shape.
4. Cut out small pieces from the edges in any pattern.
5. Open it up and there's your heart snowflake!
6. Measure out a piece of yarn for each heart that you have - all the same length. Thread a piece of yarn threw one of the holes in the heart, and then tie around the top of your window treatment - or where ever you'd like, and that's it.
We did 2 pink and 2 red hearts, alternating in our windows. It's a nice and subtle Valentine decoration that's fun to make :)
Did you try this one out? Let me know, I love to hear back from everyone!
Thanks for stopping by, and please come back again tomorrow for another project.
