Lacing Hearts for Valentines

If we had to sum up this Lacing Heart Craft in only a few words it would be “simple, cute, & fun for all ages”.  These hearts are perfect for kids to create and there won’t even be a mess when they are done!  Gotta love crafts like that…  Great “Make & Take” kids craft (no drying time required).  Add a loop for hanging hearts on a branch in a vase (adorable), attach a thin ceramic magnet to the back and display on a refrigerator, or add to gift bags.  Personalize Lacing Hearts with Sharpie Markers and give as gifts for Valentine’s Day.  These Lacing Hearts are sure to be just as much fun to make as they are to give away!

Directions for Making Lacing Hearts:

1.  Using an opened up paperclip (or other item of your choice), push out the pre-punched foam holes around the Lacing Heart Shape.
