Simple Valentine’s Day Decorations

I have seen 3-D heart decorations on Pinterest and I LOVE them!  I decided to give them a try with cutout foam hearts that I purchased at the Dollar Tree.

This would make a fun kids craft.

You will need heart cutouts (3 for each decorations), something to decorate the hearts with…I used streamers, yarn or string, and a glue stick.

The first thing you will need to do is decorate the hearts.  I chose to use streamers, but you could decorate the hearts with anything of your choosing.  If you use glitter glue, you will need to let it dry prior to gluing together the hearts.  Next you will glue half of 2 hearts together.  I used a glue stick because it stays together quickly.

At this point, you will place your string or yarn into the crease of the 2 hearts.

Be sure the yarn is centered at the very top center of the heart, where it forms a “v”.  Next, you will put glue on the entire 3rd heart, and glue it to the open area of the 2 hearts already glued together.  This will form the 3-D effect.  Be sure to line up the edges and press firmly at the center point.

Let your hearts dry and hang them for decoration.  Have fun!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
