Valentines Decorations / December 30, 2018 / Mara Beasley
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.
There are many ways in which you can decorate for this holiday. Of course the colors of the day include reds pinks white and other similar tones. You can even make a wide selection of these from the kids construction box. Here are some ideas to help get you started. The Bulletin Board Need to decorate a bulletin board? Fill it with flowers and hearts in the color scheme mentioned. Make sure to put a fun border around it and possibly put hearts of all shapes and sizes throughout it. Include some pictures of family members of the students in a class for a great look. You can also ad a fun saying or slogan to it. Make it something quirky like "Be My Valentine" or make it religious such as "God Is Love." In the background do something unique.
Head to the candy aisle and have fun! Allow each party guest to frost their cupcakes themselves and add their own decoration. Consider picking up some "to go" boxes so guests can take home extra cupcakes to enjoy when they return home. Use hearts cut from pieces of construction paper punch a heart shaped hole in the top string a piece of ribbon through each before filling each box with cupcakes. Write the name of each party guest on to the heart so their boxes dont get mixed up with someone elses by mistake. This box display also acts as yet another Valentines day decoration opportunity for the party. Valentines Decorations make a great accent during that special time of year and you can create these easy decorations for the home or the classroom.
