Easy DIY Paper Hearts

easy paper hearts

I started making these hearts last weekend, and my seven-year-old quickly joined in, making them as quickly as I had been and hanging them from the second window in our kitchen.

These are so fun and easy, and you could use them for window decor, garlands, mobiles and more!

Supplies:

  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • paper cutter, optional (I like this one!)
  • string
  • tape

Directions:

Cut your construction paper into thin strips.

Fold each strip in half with a sharp crease.

Create a sticky loop with your tape (to make double-sided tape!) and tape the end of the string to the end of one strip.

Using the picture above as a guide, fold the end with the tape in toward the inside of the “v” in the strip. Fold the end of the other strip in as well. Carefully align the ends and press together tightly.

The string should extend out of the top of the heart so that you can hang it.

Variations:

  • Use varying lengths or widths to make different sized hearts.
  • Leave the string off and use a needle and thread to sew them together side by side (use a bead or pompom to help space them apart).
