Supplies Needed:

-Tissue Paper (I used Valentine’s colors- light pink, red, and purple)

-Clear Contact Paper

-Scissors

-Pencil

-Piece of Paper

-Scotch Tape

Directions:

1. Cut a heart template from your regular piece of paper. I folded it in half and free-handed half of a heart to make a whole heart when I cut it out (so that it was symmetrical. The heart was 2”x2” at the most.

2. Trace your heart template on top of your folded tissue paper and cut out. It’s up to you how many hearts you cut out, but I did about 30 in each color and it worked out great.

3. Cut a piece of contact paper and remove the backing. Then carefully tape the contact paper (with the sticky side facing you)  to a window on all sides.

4. Now is the fun part-sticking! You and your child can stick them up randomly. Don’t be afraid to let the hearts overlap- that is what gives it its cool effect!

4. Keep sticking until you fill up all of the paper.

5. You can leave it in a rectangle or cut the contact paper itself into a heart. Add some string and hang it on your window as a decoration if you choose!

That’s it!
