There are so many choices for designing Valentine decorations from a wide selection of supplies. Then again, usually all that’s readily available are some pieces of construction paper and plain white sheets of paper. That’s all you need to have, though, to come up with some delightful paper craft Valentines day decorations. Here are three project techniques for Valentines Day decorations:
Project Solution #1
Accumulate sheets of colored construction paper; it doesn’t really have to be just red or pink. Use as many colors as you’d wish. Crease the sheets of paper into quarters, and trim them up. Flip each quarter piece in half; create a half of a heart on to each so the center of the heart is the fold.
Cut each heart out, and mount or tape them all over your home similar to how paper snowflakes would be placed. The variety of colors adds a totally different perspective to this classic paper craft. When hanging them up, possibly consider doing so in layers or by slightly overlapping the hearts.
Project Solution #2
Comply with the same details above, and put the hearts aside. Bring sheets of plain white paper and cut them into snowflakes making use of all different styles (use your creative thinking. Place the hearts over the snowflakes, and trace around the rims.
Cut the snowflake so it meets over the heart, and glue them together. You could also cut the snowflake so it is a bit smaller to bring the heart a framed look. Display the hearts around your home, on mirrors, on glassed over wall hangings, and from lighting.
Project Technique #3
Design a basic paper chain using red, pink, and white. Alternate the colors in a layout that pleases you. There’s no right or wrong way to execute this. Suspend this with additional Valentines day decorations like the paper hearts mentioned above.
Consider suspending the hearts from the chain, itself. As an added perspective, cut large hearts out from pieces of decorative scrapbook paper. Punch two holes in the left and right side of each heart, and string ribbon or twine through to generate a heart paper chain.
You can try this using colored construction paper and plain white paper, as well. The construction paper and plain white paper does perfect for those excited in adding their own drawings, doodles, and embellishments to these Valentines day decorations.
These basic paper craft projects are a outstanding strategy to sit down and bring in basic Valentine decorations strategies to young children. Not only can you integrate fine motor skills and use of adhesives into the lesson, but you can appropriately nurture children the account of Valentines Day and why people like producing Valentines day decorations to hang in their homes.
This is also a fabulous strategy to bring a bit of added romance for couples enjoying their first Valentines Day together. Look into writing messages on each heart before hanging them up to further add to this gift for your partner. Children engaged on this project may also want to add special messages on each heart before suspending them up as well, which adds an additional learning aspect to this fun project.
