Hearty Valentine's crafts

Heart-shaped activities are something that my kids absolutely adore, and they start making them as soon as we undecorate the Christmas tree. In one of the previous posts you  have already seen some of our hearty crafts, and this year we have a few completely new ones:

1. Simple Valentine's garland

This cheerful heart-shaped garland was made ​​in the same way as the one with Easter eggs. We cut out the cardboard hearts, and glued colorful pieces of collage paper on them:

 When everything was dry, it looked like this:

In the end we hung the hearts on a decorative ribbon and had a colorful decoration for The Hearty  day, as my girls call the Valentine's day:

2. Pen decorations

In a post about pipe cleaners' crafts, you have already seen how easily they are shaped into a heart, so we put them on different pens as a decoration:

3. Heart-shaped wax crayons

I won't pretend this is my idea, since it's been spreading along Pinterest way back before I joined it.

We have collected the remains of wax crayons and sorted them in a silicone mold which we then heated in a microwave oven, at the strongest temperature for about 8 minutes.

It was quite hot when it was over, so we left it to cool before removing from the mold:

This is how they looked like on the bottom side:

The Older quickly noticed that the hearts lined up in this way really remind her of trefoil, which can be a great St. Patrick's Day craft:

4. Hearts with bottle caps and buttons

These hearts were made ​​in the same way as our bottle caps Christmas tree. We sorted them in a heart shape and then used a glue gun:

5. Heart shaped cookies

We also made some heart-shaped biscuits, but they quickly disappeared and we only have this picture from an early phase of their preparation:

If you need more inspiration, see our Valentine's board on our Pinterest profile.

I wish all of you to have a lot of hearty crafts and warms hugs in each of the next 365 days, not only on February the 14th ;)
