American Patriotic Heart Pin

Kids can create these hearts to wear on the 4th of July or simply to show their patriotic spirit anytime.They will have fun creating the wads of paper to glue and is a fun classroom project that requires minimal time and material. Another idea is that kids can create such hearts showing off their school colors at pep ralleys or sporting events.

1. Print out a heart you like or use a cookie cutter heart and transfer the shape to the cardboard and cut out.
2. Draw 3 straight and even sections down the front side of the heart using pencil and ruler.
3. Tear each colored tissue paper into small 1 inch pieces and create a wad with each piece. Add a good amount of glue to the first area you wish to fill. Adhere the wads next to each other filling up the spaces and making sure not to leave any openings.
4. Start now with the next color on the next section and repeat step 3.
5. Complete the last section with the 3rd color and repeat step 3 again.
4. Cut a thin strip of cardstock or cardboard. Turn the finished and dry heart over, lay the pin in the center, and insert the strip through the pin and glue it to hold the pin in place. Let the glue thoroughly dry before wearing.
