We did a really fun project this morning. I didn't really have much time to prepare so I quickly cut hearts out of cardboard. I didn't even trace the heart first. I thought rustic hearts would be just fine. Then I cut and ripped some scrapbook paper in little bits. I used mostly pink with a little white/multicolored thrown in. They would like great in lots of colors. That is just what I had on top of my pile. The kids brushed Mod Podge (which I learned is non-toxic) on the cardboard. Then spread with scraps. They really needed help to get the cardboard covered. Then they brushed another coat of mod podge on. I did the last two coats (after each one dried - I waited about 15 minutes) because I already had everything cleaned up and didn't want to clean again. I let the kids pose with them without the ribbon because I had a feeling that they would try to rip the ribbon off. I have a ton of ribbon but only one that I would look okay with the hearts. I tied the ribbon in the loop and duck taped it to the back of the hearts.
I love that my kids love to make crafts. I might enjoy these projects more than they do and I certainly love how they make the house look. We just hung these a little while ago and Luke keeps smiling at them.
