A Child Craft Valentine Idea

We've got a child craft Valentine Idea that will literally win your hearts over. Grab a regular hanger from your clothes closet and start holiday crafting! With our easy's a snap, or should I say, snip?

Crepe paper, scissors, pencil, glue and colorful ribbons are the provide the base for this Valentine craft.

Add some red and pink construction paper and you're on your way! Kids will be able to practice scissor cutting skills to cut out a bunch of hearts.

All the rest is just glue and string...and a good place (front and center) to hang this holiday decoration.

Child Craft Valentine

Let's take a look at the supply list and get started! Enjoy!


  • An ordinary wire clothes hanger
  • Crepe paper (we used pink)
  • Pencil
  • Colored construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Colored ribbon


    1. Cut the crepe paper into 2-inch strips.

    2. Wrap around a wire clothes hanger until completely covered.

    3. Choose three colors of construction paper.

    4. Use a template to cut out a lot of hearts (we used a cookie cutter).

    5. Fold the hearts in half (make a good crease).

    6. Place one heart on the table, fold side facing upwards.

    7. Put glue on one side of the heart.

    8. Glue a second folded heart to one side of the first heart, matching center lines.

    9. Take a third folded heart and glue it to the remaining side of the first heart (again matching center lines).

    10. Lay the yarn (or string) along the center line and glue in place.

    11. Glue the inner flaps of the second and third hearts together, enclosing the string within the flaps.

    12. Repeat these steps until you have a string of as many hearts as you want.

    13. Tie to the hanger, alternating with streamers of colorful ribbons.

    14. Now go and hang your new child craft valentine!
