Paper Heart Art

Paper Hearts -Paper & Fox

Paper Heart Art

This is a super easy and really pretty Valentines Day Art project.  My  5-year-old approves, and he is a hard sell when it comes to anything that can be classified into “girl art”… like hearts.


  • Origami Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun/glue sticks
  • Canvas
  • Card stock Paper

I created a heart template out of card stock paper. I folded  various colors of origami paper in half.

Using my heart-shaped template, I cut out lots of paper hearts.

Paper Hearts

I used  many different colors and ended up with about 30 paper hearts.  I am sure I will find a use for leftover hearts.

I could have measured and marked where I wanted to place the hearts on the canvas, but I didn’t.  I eye-balled the spacing of the hearts, and arranged the layout of the different colors.

I placed a tiny dot of  hot glue on the center fold of each heart and attached it to the canvas.

The final piece is a clean and simple  that would be great to display all year, not just valentine’s day.

    I’m not crafty at all, but we’re having a baby in April and I’ve been looking for ways to decorate her nursery that take hours to craft. I love how simple this is! (BTW, I work with David at Belk and he said it would make your day if we visited and commented on your blog. And as a fellow blogger, I’m all about making another blogger’s day.) I’ll be back to visit later. :)

      I meant “that don’t take hours to craft.”

    Cute. I did a similar project with folded butterflies cut from paper. But, I painted the paper with watercolor paints first. I think that technique would work beautifully here as well!

    I stumbled across your blog through I love this craft idea! So whimsical and do-able. Pinned for next Valentine’s, or just anytime I need some hearts on the wall (you never know).
