Directions

  1. First, you will have to download, print and cut the heart template. You can also draw your own heart if you prefer.
  2. Next, trace two copies of the heart on the recycled brown paper bag.
  3. Use scissors to cut out your hearts. If you have small children, make sure they are using safety scissors.
  4. Paint one of the hearts different shades of red, pink, white or purple. Allow your child to get creative with their heart. This will be the front side of your puffy heart craft. You can add glitter but that’s optional.
  5. Staple the sides of the hearts. Work your way around the edge, stapling a half inch apart. Leave some space at the top and possibly the sides.
  6. Finally, stuff your heart with polyester fiber fill then staple it until it’s completely sealed. If you are not a fan of using a stapler for this project, use a hole punch and thread yarn through the holes instead. You could also use double sided adhesive roller.
