Heart-Shaped Arts and Crafts Animals: How to Make Them for February 14th
Heart-shaped animals for Valentine’s Day isn’t just about those February 14th chocolate packages from Russell Stover or other candy manufacturers. Rather, it’s about creatively crafting heart shapes on construction paper and then pasting them together into various animals — like this owl.
It helps to craft the different-sized heart shapes from an assortment of colored construction paper. The variations in color add texture and depth to the animals you create, as demonstrated with this friendly feline.
It is likewise a boon to purchase googly-eyes that have adhesive backs. They can then be placed onto your animal shapes to provide more character to your creation. Here’s another assortment of heart-shaped arts and crafts animals: the sea lion and its toy sphere, a raccoon, a good-sized fish, a panda bear, and a regal lion. The lion was enhanced by additional snips made to make its mane more life-like.
