Valentine Hearts Hearts and Crafts

Valentine - a person singled out as one's sweetheart on Saint Valentine's Day

Here's a neat way to show someone you care - make them a Valentine paper mache heart! This fun, easy craft takes a bit of time to make but it's not too difficult and the results can be kept forever.

What you Need:

  • Paper mache paste
  • Newspaper or newsprint cut in strips
  • Heart shape balloons [any size]
  • String
  • Red and White craft paint
  • Valentine ribbon [optional]
  • Other Valentine decorations [optional]
  • Heart shaped sponge [optional]
  • Paint sealer
  • Paint brushes, scissors, glue
Before you can create your Valentine hearts you will need to make a batch of paper mache paste. Be sure to allow to cool first before using.

Tip: Using newsprint rather then newspaper for paper mache is much cleaner. You can get newsprint without ink at your local newspaper office. Ask for a roll-end. There may be a charge for it.
