Valentine’s day is a great holiday for all things heart – from simple crafts, through lovely cards and art projects. But spreading love should be a “all around the year” thing.

This art project is fairly simple to make, and you can make it as an individual craft / art project or as a group / classroom one.

It can be made freehand or by using a heart punch. It can have the hearts carry a message. You can use colored paper, or have the kids each make their unique decorated and cut hearts. Many, many options.

This one works out as a super adorable classroom door decoration, with kids creating their own hearts and signing them – all nicely displayed on the tree.

Or Follow These Step by Step Instructions

Start with a sheet of white (or other color) base paper.

With a black or brown marker draw a tree. Draw branches.

You can also use paint and paint the tree on a canvas.

Take a sheet of color paper and fold it (roughly as shown on the picture bellow).

Cut out heart shapes (half hearts).

Don’t know how to make hearts? You can easily make a stencil (no skill required) by drawing a number 2 newt to the fold and cutting along the number.

To make the tree more colorful, use different colors.

Also make the hearts in different shapes (unless using a paper punch natraully).

Apply glue on the hearts…

…and glue them on the branches. One by one until you are satisfied with how your tree looks.

Other variations:

Instead of color paper, have the kids paint their own papers for the heart leaves.

Use a handprint for the tree.

Make this in largescale as a wonderful decoration for your home or for your classroom.

Write lovely messages on each of the hearts you glue on your tree with paper hearts art.
