Valentine’s Day is coming! Let’s spread the love this month and get crafty!

As you’re gathering treats for your sweetie, and lovies for your kiddos, here’s a fun simple project to make at home, consisting of hearts, hearts, and more hearts! So, without further ado, here is the Hanging Valentine Flower Project!

-red/pink construction paper
-fun patterned paper


  1. Divide construction paper into 4 even strips (I would suggest making the strips from a horizontal or ‘hot dog’ oriented paper)
  2. Cut the strips, being careful to keep them as even as possible.
  3. Fold each strip in half
  4. Gently curve the edges of the fold back  to the crease of the fold, creating a heart shape.
  5. Tape the bottom the heart, making sure the middle crease is connected to the tape as well. Do this for each strip.
  6. Now that you have four little hearts, begin taping the sides of the hearts to each other, using double sided tape or a folded piece of tape. Do this until all the hearts are connected.
  7. Take the first and fourth heart and tape them together in such a way that the hearts resemble a circular accordion, or, oddly enough, a flower.
  8. Draw and cut a 1” heart shape from a piece of patterned paper that coordinates with the color of your flower.
  9. Glue the small patterned heart to the center of your flower.
  10. Attach a ribbon, one end in between the second and third ‘petals’, and the other end between the eighth and first ‘petals’, so that the flower hangs evenly.

**Alternate idea:  if you have some thin, sturdy wire available, attach to the back of the flower to create a stem for your flower! Make a whole bouquet!**

Enjoy, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
