Valentine Crown of Hearts
Crown your king or queen with this easy-to-make Valentine Crown of Hearts for Valentine’s Day or any other loving occasion. You can replace the heart with any shape you wish for other occasions, such as birthday candles or stars.
Trivia: The classic picture of two swans facing each other with bills touching is a very popular one for Valentines, and this forms a heart shape between them. They are actually smelling each other’s breath to remember who’s who (swans can appear identical and sometimes get confused, just as we confuse them).
Several colors of construction paper
Glue, tape, or staples
For this Valentine Crown of Hearts cut strips of construction paper 3-4 inches wide. You will need to measure the child's head to determine how many strips you need.
