Valentine Paper Heart Chain DIY

We finally took down the Christmas tree yesterday and the house looked so bare.
(if you look close you can see the Christmas tree on the back porch in these photos haha
and in the last one the wind blow the tree over haha)
heart valentine paper chain DIY
Eli and I decided to make Valentine's Day decorations :)
Saw this paper chain project and thought I'd give it a try!
It's a bit tricky for little ones (eli's 7 and it was difficult for him)
You have to hold 4 pieces of paper in place while stapling - I think it requires adult coordination. 
Valentine Paper Heart Chain DIY
You just need paper, scissors (or a cutter), and a stapler with a ton of staples ha! 
This would even be great for Christmas as garland on the tree! Need to remember that for next year!

So we chained a bunch and hung them in our back window! Turned out really pretty! 
If you make some, send me the link I'd love to see yours!

These are so cute! I've got tons of paper around the house so I'll definitely have to make these with Dallas.

I'm now inspired to take my christmas tree down! These might be a little girly for my boyfriend's tastes, but he'll have to deal with that or having the tree up until february, ha!
