Valentine’s Day craft: string of hearts

Spread the love this Valentine’s Day with a simple decoration your family can make with paper, staples and string! The paper hearts for this Valentine’s Day garland are easy to assemble. If you have youngsters helping, be sure to let them practice pattern-making skills as you string the garland.

Valentine's Day craftSupplies

Colored construction or scrapbook paper
Scissors or paper cutter
Stapler
Single-hole punch
String

Instructions

Cut paper into one-inch strips lengthwise (cut size 1” x 11”).

Fold paper strip in half and crease (folded size 1” x 5”).

Bend the loose ends of your folded strip towards the middle and pull down (forming a heart shape) and staple into place.

Using a single-hole punch, cut through the middle and each side of the heart.

Thread finished hearts onto the string to create your garland.


This craft was created just for RAK by Bettijo B. Hirschi & Aimée Lowry, the Arizona moms behind family-style blog Paging Supermom.
