Hang a Heart

 Gather a piece of poster board (ideally pink, white, or red), clear contact paper (shelf paper), tissue paper (ideally pink, white, and/or red), ribbon or yarn (ideally pink, white, or red), scissors, a hole punch, and a pen.

Draw a heart shape onto the poster board and then draw another heart within it.

Cut the heart out by cutting along both of the lines.

Roll out the contact paper sticky side up and lay the heart on it.

Cut the tissue paper into squares and then place them on the contact paper inside the heart.

Then place a second sheet of contact paper over the top of the tissue paper, sticky side down, and cut out the heart.

Punch a hole at the top of your heart and attach a piece of string for hanging.

Ta-da! You have your very own heart sun catcher to hang in your window for catching sun rays. Every time we look at this heart, we can remember that Jesus loves us so big!
