Valentines Decorations / December 30, 2018 / Bobbi Oneil.
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.
They are made with salt dough and make great sculptures to have as keepsakes. Youll need: o 2 cups of plain flour o 1 cup of salt o 1 cup of water o oven o acrylic paint o knife o board o rolling pin o paintbrushes o baking tray o pen pencil or stylus Mix the two cups of flour into a bowl with one cup of salt and one cup of water with your hands until the dough is entirely moistened and sticks together. It should be like pizza dough easy to mold. Youll see the little grains of salt in the dough dont worry thats what it should look like. Roll out the dough into a sheet about a quarter of an inch thick. Then use your stylus pen or pencil to cut out a heart shape. Set this aside and roll out the dough again to cut out some smaller heart shapes. Once you have about three heart shapes in decreasing size you can press one on top of the other. Use a little water between the layers to act as a glue or paste.
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.
