Last year I made tiny watercolor hearts. This year I made my watercolor hearts in the same way, but instead of tiny ones using a heart punch, I used a cookie cutter to trace the heart shape. Not as quick and easy as a punch, but it still allowed me to see the pattern that would be on the heart shape. This project is perfect for children of all ages. Even preschoolers could paint and then see their work made into heart shaped watercolor masterpieces.
My birch branch with white twinkle lights started out as decoration for Thanksgiving, then Christmas– I’m still loving the extra light, so it will be around at least through Valentine’s day!
I used a small heart shaped hole punch, but any hole punch would work. Twine that’s a little wax coated makes it easy to lace through the holes if this project is for little ones.
