Paper Hearts

Updated: Jan 23

January and February have always been a combination of snowmen and hearts for me; I love the two together!

I know Valentine is part of that love of them as well!

It also can be a New England thing. I grew up in that area and then moved to Texas about 35 years ago. So I just know I love putting both of them together, especially during the winter months after the Christmas season.

Here's a simple guide to creating hearts with minimal supplies that are likely at your fingertips:

Supplies needed:

  • Scrapbook paper

  • Decoupage rice paper

  • Hot glue

  • Elmer's glue or Mod Podge

  • Scissors

  • Diamond dust glitter

  • Embellishments of your choosing

  • Some stuffing

I made two hearts, one with scrapbook paper .

The other with beautiful Decoupage Central Rice paper.

  • Draw out your heart by folding the paper and drawing on the fold for a perfect, even shape on each side.

  • Cut out two hearts from each paper.

  • Use hot glue to join both sides together, stuffing a little with poly filler before sealing the opening.

You will only need a little of it .

It looks adorable already!

  • Choose your embellishments and glue them on. For a rosette, coil a thin piece of material, glue as you roll, and add a button in the center.

I also added some thin strips of material behind it before I glued everything on.

I took my brown ink and added a little bit to the heart to make it a little grungy. You don't have to do this if you don't like that look.

For the other heart I used the rice paper and did the same steps . I did punch out some hearts from this corrugated piece of cardboard.

I love using these ... it's what comes around my coffee .

This pinch works really well I'm so glad I got it !

These hearts are so cute!

I did use my Elmer's glue and added a little bead of glue around my heart and sprinkled some glitter!

I love that sparkling effect!

I embellished them with some buttons.

So there you have it so simple , so budget friendly but yet so beautiful!

These budget-friendly hearts can be used to fill a dough bowl, hung with twine on a year-round tree, or strung together for a whimsical garland. Get creative and enhance your home decor without breaking the bank!

I hope you give these a try !
