Scrunchie Crepe Paper Valentine Heart DIY

Here's a fun, quick and easy Valentine project you can make on your own or with the kids.  

Just take a piece of crepe paper, roll it around a dowel rod on one side and then on the other side do the same, making sure your rolled paper rods come together in the center.

Stand the rods up and from the bottom, start pushing down on the paper with your fingers, crushing it together until all of the paper is crushed .

Remove the sticks from the paper and you have what I would call  crepe paper scrunchies! 

Now ready to make whatever you want!!!

One cool thing about these scrunchies is that they can be expanded a bit - by pulling them out and or glued together to make them longer! 
To make the heart, I glued the end together and pushed and glued the center down, forming a small heart.
Then, I rolled more crepe paper together in different colors .  .  .

crushed down together and .  .  .

glued one end together to make the scrunchie longer and then wrapped & glued them around the smaller hearts.  .  .  .
forming an adorable larger heart!

Imagine making several of these to place around your home for Valentine's Day decorating, or use in gift giving on wrapped presents, or you can do as I did, and glue a scrunchie covered stick to the heart and place in a potted plant or flowers .  .  .

Either way, this scrunchie crepe paper Valentine heart is sure to be a hit!

Take a little time to enjoy


Happy Crafting!
