Today we have a great little kids DIY craft idea perfect for Valentine’s Day – thanks to a guest post from PeekyMe.
- Cardboard (we used quite a sturdy cardboard so the heart holds its shape)
- Red and pink tissue paper
- Contact paper (2 sheets slightly larger than the heart)
- Red paint
- Paint brush
Layer some sheets of pink and red tissue paper (we folded ours multiple times to make it easy to cut bulk circles) and cut out small circles using scissors.
Draw the shape of a heart on a piece of cardboard and cut it out. Draw a thin border inside the heart and then cut out the inside of the heart to give you a frame.
Paint the heart frame, you might even like to use glitter or stickers to make it shimmer.
Once the paint is dry, place the heart on a sheet of contact paper so it sticks.
Stick down the circles inside the heart, overlapping some to blend the colours.
Take the second piece of contact paper and press it down on top of the heart. Seal all the edges and push out any air bubbles.
Cut around the heart to remove any excess contact paper.
Punch a hole in the centre of the heart frame and tie some string to hang.
A very sweet gift to give to a special friend who will love watching the sun shine through and light up the heart.
Not just a great gift idea for Valentines day but also Mothers Day, a birthday or just to show you care!
