Heart Window Decor

G-man is 3 years, 1 month old


I’m loving tissue paper after we did the Mitten Suncatcher and so I thought we’d try a similar idea to make a heart for our front window.

What You Need:

colored tissue paper (we used red and pink)
contact paper

What to do:

1. Cut the tissue paper in 1 inch squares.
2. Cut contact paper to whatever size heart you want to make
3. Have your child stick the tissue paper squares onto the contact paper

4. When done, cut a similar size contact paper and press it onto the top of the other one
5. Fold it in half and draw a half heart shape


6. Cut out heart and hang in window. An inexpensive window decoration that your child can be proud of. While making this my 3 year old said “Mom, this is so beautiful”.


When he gets a little older, I think it would be fun to do several of these in different sizes and colors and decorate the whole bay window!

On a side note-today the kids got Valentine’s from Grandma and Grandpa in the mail and just in case they check this, here they are opening them. They were so excited to get their own mail. My 18 month old took 5 minutes to get the envelope open and he would NOT let me help him. :-)
