DIY Tissue Paper Hearts
February 10, 2016 7:47 pm | by

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday — one that’s filled with lots of sweets and love! During this time of year, I always try to make a festive craft with my little one that we can display around the house and admire! This year for Valentine’s Day, we decided to make DIY Tissue Paper Hearts that look like stained glass!

This is something that’s super easy to make, great for any age and adds so much color into our house. Aside from this craft being a bonding experience, it also promotes fine motor skill use and independence. Here’s how to make these fun little hearts!

Here’s what you need to make your DIY Tissue Paper Hearts:

  • Tissue paper (any color)
  • Clear contact paper
  • Red construction paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors (for parent)
  • Tape

How To:

1. Cut tissue paper into small pieces. You are somewhat replicating a stained glass window so feel free to cut shapes, hearts and whatever else you prefer!

2. Lay contact paper out and let your little one glue the tissue pieces to the paper. My little guy loves to use glue so this was by far his favorite part.

3. After gluing, let paper dry.

4. Carefully fold contact paper in half and cut out as many hearts as you can. You are more than welcome to draw the hearts and cut them out that way as well.

5. Next, do the same with the red construction paper and then cut the middle to make a border for your hearts (see picture).
