Tissue Heart Picture

A visitor named H. Marie explains how to make this cool picture that has a stained glass effect. You can use larger hearts and make a picture similar to this one, or use small hearts and these techniques to make a Valentine's Day card.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Cut a variety of heart shapes out of tissue paper. In a small container, mix one part glue with one part water. Use a paint brush and spread a thin coat of glue on a piece of white construction paper. Arrange the tissue paper hearts on the glue as desired. Make the hearts overlap each other. If you are using a very large piece of paper, work in small sections.

Once your hearts are placed on the glue, add a thin coating of glue over the top so the hearts are completely covered. When done, set it aside and let the glue dry.

When the glue is dry, trim the white paper around the hearts. Leave about 1/4-inch of white showing around the edges. Mount your heart picture on black, pink, or purple paper using glue. You picture will be ready to hang up once that glue is dry..
