Tissue Paper Heart

Tissue Paper Heart Decoration

I can’t believe how quickly this year is going!  Winter usually drags on while I stay held up in my warm home cuddled under a blanket wishing for warm weather to arrive.  That tends to make the days go slow.  But for some reason, maybe it is the bit of warm weather we just experienced or the extra sun we had shining today, but for some reason, I feel like this year is flying by and Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it!  Like TOMORROW!

One of my favorite bits I added was a really cute Tissue Paper Heart decoration that was really simple to make and turned out super duper cute!  And the best part is that you can easily recreate something similar for your own home if you want!  I am excited to show you how.

Supplies needed to create this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Extruded Heart
  • Red Tissue Paper (or color of your choice)
  • Wood Plaque (Optional but fun!  I found the one I used at a local craft store near the wood letters.)
  • Scissors
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun & Glue



You will begin by cutting red tissue paper into small squares, about 2″ x 2″.  Then you will take one square of tissue paper at a time, grab the middle and hot glue it onto the foam heart.  This will create a fun flowery design on your heart perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Continue doing this until the entire heart is filled with tissue paper.  (I only did the front and sides because I knew I would be gluing the back onto a board.)

If you have a wood board or plaque, you can use glue to attach the finished tissue paper heart onto the board.

Display and you’re done!  I had this really fun arrow jewelry stand that was perfect to hang my heart on for Valentine’s Day!  This whole project went together really quickly and easily.  And you can choose a different color of tissue paper or even mix and match colors to make this your own!
