We threw a fun Kids Valentines party for a few of the girls friends. They had so much fun creating these adorable little flowers with their friends.
How to make DIY Heart Flowers:
- Start by covering the table with a roll of brown paper.
- Make your a heart potato stamp ahead of time. Potato stamps work best when the cut end of the potato is dry before printing.
- Individual stamp pads were made for each of the kids. Check out our tutorial on how to make your own re-usable stamp pad. We used yogurt lids, white felt and tempera paint to make ours.
- The kids then used a simple potato stamp, to cover the paper with stamped hearts.
- Once the stamped hearts were dry, the kids cut them all out.
- I helped the kids punch a hole in the corner of each heart.
- They used about 4-5 hearts for each flower. String them onto a pipe cleaner. give the end of the pipe cleaner a little twist to hold all the hearts in place.
