In Craft Tutorials, DIY and Make-Do tutorials

If you’re looking for an easy-peasy Valentine paper heart chain that you can make with your kids, look no further! All you need is some colored paper strips and a stapler. My 9 yr old had a blast making these. Just be sure your stapler is kid friendly.

Click on over to Craftzine for the full tutorial, plus how-to’s for 2 extra variations made out of felt!

This little felt ornament uses the same technique as the paper chain, and it’s no-sew! (I used the stapler here, too…shhh!)

This felt garland uses felt balls and hearts strung on a clear cord. Check out the details at Craftzine for a trick to easily make 10 hearts at once. You’ll need a sewing machine for this version.
Seriously, these are so fun and addicting to make!
