We're pulling all the stops out this Valentine's Day, and this adorable heart craft is just one of our projects! 

You won't believe how easy it is to put together! Kids will love the process -is simple and quick- and you'll love it too because this time around, there's no paint involved. A completely messy-free craft!

The stripy pattern looks amazing, and it creates such a cool visual effect thanks to the heart shape! You can organise the paper straws horizontally or vertically, whichever way you (and the little ones) like better.

We chose to go with red and white paper straws to keep up with Valentine's Day colours, but any colour will do, especially a pinkish hue!

STEP 3: Put together your design

Once all the paper straws are neatly flatted, it's to add them to your heart template. Start by trimming them using scissors and fill the template's heart shape.
