Hanging Hearts!


Here's a super easy Valentine's inspired craft! 
Hanging hearts!


First make some heart templates.  Cut out hearts of varying sizes.


Trace onto cardstock...one big one and one slightly smaller...in 3 sizes, (and 2 of each size...a front and a back)
Cut them out...


and sandwich some tissue paper in the middle...put glue around the heart and press...


Put some string in between all the hearts...for hanging and you should end up with a little something like
THIS!


Don't be limited by red and pinks...go crazy with your colours...these are easy and really pretty to have hanging around the house...I think I'll keep them up until spring...we're deep in the heart of winter here and I need all the colour I can get!!

Happy Heart Making!!!

  5. Ahahaha! I just ran this post past my boys as an idea of what we might do tomorrow morning. The 12 yr old thought they were lovely and a great idea, the 6 yr old wanted to do them as long as we could use only a palette of black, and the 2 yr old said they were too girly!
