The easiest way to make symmetrical hearts is to fold the construction paper in half. You can either cut them freehand, or use one of our heart templates. We have both half heart templates and whole heart templates.
- Red, white, pink and/or purple construction paper
- White glue
- Length of string, ribbon, or yarn
You will need to cut out AT LEAST the following:
However, there are many ways to combine the hearts for whatever look you like. You may want to cut out a variety of sizes and glue them together for a layered look. At the very minimum though, take each of the heart pairs and glue them back to back with the string/yarn in between. Leave a space
between each pair on the string/yarn. Then you can decorate each pair of hearts any way you like. Glue on several layers of many different size hearts. Decorate with bits of ribbon or candy hearts.
- 2 very large hearts
- 2 large hearts
- 2 medium hearts
- 2 small hearts
Hang from the ceiling or on a wall. If you want to give this to mom as a gift, wrap a few candy kisses in plastic wrap and tie them to the bottom of the string/yarn.
