Eco Valentine Crafts: Decorations for Kids

Valentine Decorations for Kids

It’s awfully fun to to spread the love with heart-shaped decorations on Valentine’s Day.  You can go the traditional and elegant route with doilies and pink tissue paper, or try something a little more offbeat.  Here’s a perfect Valentine-themed project for a play date, classroom activity or family craft night.   It’s open-ended–pick out whatever papers, beads and other materials you want, and create Valentine ornaments to hang all over the house.

DIY Paper & Bead Valentine Ornament Project

What you’ll need: sturdy paper, thread, beads.

  1. Thread a needle (if you’re using small beads) and tie a big knot at one end.
  2. String some beads.
  3. Glue two hearts together with the thread in between.
  4. String more beads.
  5. Repeat as many times as you like, leaving enough room to tie a loop at the top.
  6. Hang your lovely ornament from your mantle or attach it to a special gift.  If you make several extra-long ones, you could even fill up an entire door frame–perfect if you’re hosting a Valentine party!
