More Valentine hearts

Two for one today. Stuffed paper hearts and candy cane hearts.
First the stuffed heart:
We made it with patterned and solid paper, shredded paper, string/ribbon, and a hole punch. I cut out two hearts, one on the patterned paper above, and a second of the same size in solid red. I held the two hearts together and punched holes around the edge. I cut long lengths of 1/4" red satin ribbon and jute.
To lace it, I advise punching two side-by-side holes at the bottom and lacing it up like a shoe, with one half of the ribbon on each side of the heart. Then you can hang it by two ribbons which meet at your hook. I started and the top and worked my way around one side. Also okay, but then I had to tie it off at the top of the heart and string it up with the single ribbon left. Does that make any sense?
Whichever way you choose to lace it, stop part way around to stuff the heart. I let the kids help me shred paper in advance and then they helped stuff it into the heart. I tied it off and hung it up with our other garland.

Second, the candy cane hearts. I used this tutorial at Make and Takes for shaping the candy canes. Then I hung them each by their own ribbon, but grouped them together. Ours are hanging vertically, but I'm sure you could tie them together and hang them horizontally.

More from our Valentine heart garland sampler tomorrow!

Every year I'm reminded of how much I like Valentine's Day decorations, but then I quickly forget. I wish I had some of the stuffed hearts to hang around the house.

And the worm families would be nice too. :)

What a great idea to saving money by using candy canes. I see them in the store at .25 cents a box and think Christmas is done (I don't want to save them for next Christmas) but you helped me realize that you can use them after Christmas also!

To hone logic, supported with open minds and a lot to learn. For logic that is already extensive, balance it with humility
