I promise these are super easy to make and also super fun! Your kids are going to love this and want to make over and over again! Not to mention – you can save these and reuse over and over and over again – year after year. You can hang these inside your house and on the trees out front (just be careful and mindful of rain!).

Supplies for Valentine’s Day Craft:

Puzzle from the dollar store (or you can use an old one that you have at home, too!)

Red or pink paint

Thick card stock

Ribbon or string.



Glitter (if you dare)

*As you can tell – you probably have most of these items at home. This is what I love about doing craft projects that are easy.  I don’t have to be outside hunting down different items.  I can easily look at a list and know that I have everything at home – right at my fingertips!

How to Make our Valentine’s Day Puzzle Craft:

  • Cut out a heart out of the cardstock, approximately 3” width at the largest point.

  • Pull out some puzzle pieces that are already different hues of pink or red. Then take out others and flip them upside down to paint.

Sheri McShane
Hello All. My name is Sheri. I am a working mother of 3 pretty darn fabulous little boys. I’m trying very hard to handle the stresses of working, being a mother, being a wife, keeping house, and finding the time to just laugh and enjoy life. A few things you should know about me: I’m an iced-coffee addict, I love to organize, and I love my wine. I am also a master at fort-building and being the belly-eating monster. Fitness and healthy eating habits are important to me so you may hear a little about that too. Here you will read about my daily musings and of course my venting, wine glass in hand. Hope you find something you can relate to. Cheers. If you’re a crafty kind of person, come visit me over at The Crafty Collaborative. Here you will find a group of us ladies reviewing and test driving all the fabulous recipes and DIYs we find on Pinterest. We’ll let you know if they’re worth diving into.
