Supplies for a Valentine garden craft


Instructions for Valentine craft

Paint a piece of chair foam for the base to hold the flowers


1. Cut a piece of chair foam to the desired size for the base.

  • Use pinking shears if preferred to make a crinkled edge.

2.  Paint the foam green.

  • We combined blue and yellow paint to make green since we only had a neon green on hand and it didn't seem to suit this craft.
  • Mixing paint colors is another learning opportunity for kids!


Cut paper with scalloped edge scissors to make petals and leaves


3. Cut out green and red heart shapes with edger scissors to make petals and leaves.

  • Cut the green hearts in half length-wise to make leaves.

4. Paint craft stick stems with green paint, or color them with green markers or crayons.

5. Glue the petals and leaves to the stems.

6. Make slits in the foam with a craft knife (grownups can do this) or make snips in the foam with scissors (kids can try this).

7. Insert the flowers.


Why wait for spring to plant flowers? Make a Valentine garden today and enjoy!
