Valentines Decorations / December 28, 2018 / Francisca Mccarty
Punch two holes in the left and right side of each heart and string ribbon or twine through to create a heart paper chain. You can do this using colored construction paper and plain white paper as well. The construction paper and plain white paper works great for those interested in adding their own drawings doodles and embellishments to these Valentines day decorations. These simple paper craft projects are a great way to sit down and introduce basic Valentine decorations techniques to young children. Not only can you incorporate fine motor skills and use of adhesives into the lesson but you can effectively teach children the history of Valentines Day and why people like creating Valentines day decorations to hang in their homes. This is also a great way bring a bit of added romance for couples celebrating their first Valentines Day together.
Take sheets of plain white paper and cut them into snowflakes using all different patterns (use your imagination). Place the hearts over the snowflakes and trace around the edges. Cut the snowflake so it fits over the heart and glue them together. You could also trim the snowflake so it is slightly smaller to give the heart a framed look. Hang the hearts throughout your home on mirrors on glassed over wall hangings and from lighting. Project Idea #3 Create a simple paper chain using red pink and white. Alternate the colors in a pattern that pleases you. Theres no right or wrong way to do this. Hang this with additional Valentines day decorations like the paper hearts mentioned above. Consider hanging the hearts from the chain itself. As an added twist cut large hearts out from pieces of decorative scrapbook paper.
