Valentines Decorations / December 28, 2018 / Cecelia Montgomery
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.
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.
