Show a little love with this easy tissue paper heart

To get in the spirit for Valentine’s Day, spend a winter afternoon with your kiddos creating tissue paper heart wreaths. With supplies you likely have at home, each heart will be unique and bursting with love!


  • Tissue paper (pinks, red, white, purples, etc.)
  • Glue
  • Cardstock paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon, optional


  1. Fold your piece of cardstock in half horizontally. Draw half of a large heart. Then draw another half heart inside the larger heart. Try to make it about 1 to 1 ½ inches in thickness. Cut out the heart.
  2. Cut the tissue paper into 1 ½-inch square or rectangle shapes.
  3. Wrap a piece of the cut tissue paper around a pencil eraser and dip it into glue. Then stick it to the heart cardstock. Repeat with varying colors of cut tissue paper until the heart is covered.
  4. Allow to dry, then display around the house. Punch a hole near the top for the ribbon to hang if desired.
