Valentine Craft Stained Glass Heart Materials:
- Tissue Paper (pink, red, white)
- Construction Paper (pink, red, white)
- Clear Contact Paper
Stained Glass Heart Valentine Craft Directions:
To create these pretty stained glass heart widow hangings for your Valentine craft, you will need start by cutting pink, red, and white tissue paper in approximately 1/2 to 1 inch squares. Note: a little goes a long way.
Fold a sheet of construction paper in half and cut out a large Valentine craft heart. You can open the heart to check out the shape. Refold it to make any adjustments.
While the paper heart is still folded, make a parallel cut about 1″ inside the heart. This will give you your window frame. Save the inside paper heart cutout to make a smaller version.
Open the Valentine craft heart and center it on a piece of contact paper.
Place the squares of tissue paper inside the paper heart on the contact paper. Be careful not to go over the edge of the window frame.
When the Valentine heart is filled with tissue paper, place a second piece of contact paper over the whole thing. Be careful not to get air bubbles.
Cut away the excess contact paper. If you leave a little bit of contact paper around the edge of the heart it will stick together better.
You can now either tape your stained glass hearts in a window or use a hole punch at the top of the hearts and hang them with string. Enjoying making this easy Valentine craft with your kids!
