I don’t do a lot of decorating in my house for Valentines Day but I do try and get into the spirit of the holiday in small ways. While I am not running out to Target to buy heart covered shower curtains or Cupid decorated plates, I do like to find an easy Valentines Day craft or two just for fun. A few weeks ago I purchased some (affiliate link—>>>) Valentines Day scrapbook paper and have been trying to decide what to do with it. I came across an easy Valentines Day craft idea on Pinterest that I thought would be simple enough for even my ‘uncrafty’ self to accomplish! All you need is a few simple supplies that can all be found online or at your local craft store. It takes only minutes to make each of these 3 dimensional hearts and you can make them whatever size you want. Make several different sizes and string them up in your window for a simple Valentines Day mobile!
3 Dimensional Paper Hearts for Valentines Day
Valentines Day scrap paper or any kind of white/pink/red paper that you have decorated
Yarn, string, thread or ribbon for hanging
Fold each piece of paper in half and cut out a heart shape. Starting on the fold, cut a shape that resembles half a heart as shown below. When you unfold the paper, you will have a symmetrical heart shape.
Open up each heart. You will need 3 to 6 hearts shapes for each 3 dimensional shape you want to make, depending on how you want it to look.
Fold the hearts in half again, making sure the part you want to ‘see’ is on the inside.
Glue the back pieces of the hearts together….one half of one heart will be glued to one half of the other heart until all your heart shapes are used.
Let dry. Use a hole punch to make a hole in the top of the 3D heart
Thread your ribbon through the heart and your easy Valentine’s Day craft is done! Hang it up and enjoy!
