After the holiday decorations come down, I always feel the need to simplify my decor a bit and let my home take a nice long exhale. That doesn’t mean that I don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day. Instead, it means that my Hearts Day Decor is simpler, low-key, and less fussy.

Tissue Paper Heart Craft

Gather These Supplies

  • Mod Podge Sparkle and Mod Podge Matte
  • Assorted Squares of Tissue Paper
  • Parchment Paper
  • Heart Template
  • Glass Vase or Jar
  • Foam Brush
  • Scissors
Tissue paper, Mod Podge Sparkl, silver silvers, and a foam brush

Step 1: Cut your tissue paper into squares. Apply a layer of Mod Podge Sparkle over your parchment paper, and lay down squares of tissue paper, overlapping slightly.

When layering the squares, you’ll probably need to add a bit more Mod Podge to make sure the squares adhere well.

This is so fun for the kids, too, it’s impossible to do it wrong. Once dry, apply another thin layer of Mod Podge over the entire project. Let dry.

Step 2:Once completely dry, take your heart template (I just cut one out of cardstock), and trace a heart over your tissue paper. Cut out.

Step 3: Carefully peel the parchment paper backings off of your tissue paper hearts.

You can decorate with your hearts as-is, and string onto some twine to create a garland, or hang from your windows to create fun suncatchers!

Step 4: I decided to create a fun vase out of my heart. I took a vintage glass bottle, used some Mod Podge Matte, and adhered the heart to the center of the bottle.

That is really cute. I love your "it was only a smile" sign. Could you tell me the rest of the saying? I couldn't read it all and it seems magical.
