Heart Toothpicks Valentine’s Day Craft

heart toothpicks craft for valentine's day

If I do a craft, it has to be quick. And easy. See also, foolproof. For being the creative type, my mind just doesn’t work in that way. However, there are some special occasions that call for the uniqueness that only one’s hands can create. Of course, Valentine’s Day is one of them.

You can always make a handmade card, which I love. Personally, Valentine’s Day is the one holiday where I would much rather have something personally made than bought at the last minute. I really don’t even need a card, however, just as long as the day is special and full of love. A little cheesy, I know, but that is what the day is for.

With these easy Heart Toothpicks, you can even spread the love around.

Heart Toothpicks Valentine’s Day Craft

Items needed:

  • Pink and red construction paper
  • Toothpicks
  • Scissors
  • Clear tape
  • Embellishments, your choice

There’s nothing difficult about these. Find some pink or red constructions paper and whatever way you prefer to decorate them a bit. My daughter happened to have some sticky gems lying around, so that’s what I used. Also, toothpicks, scissors and tape. If you’re on the Martha Stewart side, you may also want a file to file down the rough edges and make it look a bit neater. Kids aren’t going to care about rough edges, however.

Fold your construction paper in half and cut out 2 hearts. This is as hard as it gets.

Embellish one of the hearts until it’s just how you want.

Tape a toothpick on the back of the embellished heart. Fold another piece of tape to the back of the plain heart and attach. I’m sure glue would work as well.

These are cute as toppers in breakfast muffins or cupcakes. Or, since it’s a toothpick, you can make any food special on Valentine’s Day with these hearts. Be sure to get your kids in there to help, too! Have them cut the hearts out of the paper. That way, any imperfections aren’t imperfect at all when they come from our kids!

    This is a really fun idea. I know my kids would love to help – my 4yo is honing his scissor skills, so I bet he would love to cut out the hearts himself.

    My kids would love to make these! They love any chance they get to make a craft and if it’s a craft that goes into a cupcake afterwards even better.

    Those are sweet! And probably a lot cheaper than buying premade cupcake toppers.
