Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Valentine’s Day Craft Shapes

Staple the valentine tree PDF template to sheets of colored paper to cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Once you have the template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will have so much gluing and decorating their Valentine’s day Tree!

I recommend having a finished Valentine Tree so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. use your glue stick to glue the trunk of the tree to the top
  2. glue the hearts onto the tree
  3. decorate your tree however you want with markers or stickers
  4. optional: You can can even mimic conversation hearts by adding words to the hearts (“Cutie”, “xoxo”, “Love”)
  5. don’t forget to write your name on the back

And you’re finished!

This is such a fun and simple Valentine’s Day craft for kids. Gluing the hearts to the tree is so easy for preschool, elementary school, cub scouts or just a fun craft at home idea.
