Take a few toilet paper rolls and paint them the color you like. I choose pink, red and purple.

You only need to paint the outside of the cardboard rolls.

Let the paint dry, and you are ready to keep crafting.

Flatten the cardboard roll and cut it into slices.
You can make 4-5 pieces in each roll.
Try to have the same thickness for each piece.

Take a piece of cardboard, and invert one of the fold to create a heart shape.

Cut a piece of twine rope of a few inches and fold it to make a loop.

Put a dot of glue on the top of the heart, in the fold. Place the rope ends in the fold and press to glue.

Repeat as many time as you like to create several heart ornaments. You can hang the ornament as it on a branch if you like, or keep crafting to make a garland.

Cut a piece of rope of 2-3 feet and pass the heart ornaments through it.

You can also add a few beads on the rope if you like.

And done, hang your Valentine´s garland where you like.

If you like changing decor at each season, I suggest you use these little things.

It will save your wallpaper and avoid you to struggle with scotch tape pieces on the walls.

Another way to use the cardboard hearts is to make some vertical ornaments to hang on windows or door handles.

The steps to make the heart shape are the same as above. Once you have a few cardboard hearts, glue them on top of each other to create a heart chain.

Put a dot of glue on the top fold of the first heart. Place the bottom tip of the second heart on that fold and press to glue.

Repeat as many time as you like.

I glue 5 hearts together and I alternate the colors, red and purple.

Take a piece of rope, fold it to make a loop and glue the rope ends in the fold of the top heart.

Make the loop large enough to be able to pass it around the door handle.

To add a nice finish, you can glue a tassel on the bottom heart.

You can also pass a few beads on the rope if you like too.

And done, you have a nice heart ornament you can hang anywhere in the house.

I hope you enjoyed crafting for Valentine´s day with me.
