Valentines Decorations / December 30, 2018 / Hester Higgins
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.
Thats all you need though to create some beautiful paper craft Valentines day decorations. Here are three project ideas for Valentines Day decorations: Project Idea #1 Gather sheets of colored construction paper; it doesnt have to be just red or pink. Use as many colors as youd like. Fold the sheets of paper into quarters and cut them up. Fold each quarter piece in half; draw a half of a heart on to each so the center of the heart is the fold. Cut each heart out and hang or tape them throughout your home similar to how paper snowflakes would be hung. The variety of colors adds a different twist to this traditional paper craft. When hanging them up consider doing so in layers or by slightly overlapping the hearts. Project Idea #2 Follow the same instructions above and set the hearts aside.
It matters what you want youre party to be like. Starting with your invites you can go a little different you might be able to find some pre cut cards in the shape of a heart. If you cant find them then maybe just plain red cards will work. Using any cursives fonts will work for the writing for the cards. From there you are going to start with the party are you going for something bigger then at your average party. Hearts and red and pink are things that are the main decorations. Yet if you want to try something different you can go with a different route. Maybe instead of using both pink and red for your Valentine decorations you can use one of those colors at the main color. From there maybe you can add a white accent like white roses for the tabletops.
