Valentine's Day Craft: Clip Hearts

Clip Hearts

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

With these simple, message-bearing barrettes, Laura Stewart of El Mirage, Arizona, found an adorably useful way to tell the girls in her second-grade class, "We click!"


  • Craft foam hearts (ours are 3/4 inch and 1 1/4 inches across)
  • Hot glue
  • Click-style barrettes (also known as contour clips)
  • Scissors
  • Colored card stock
  • Marker


  1. Arrange two or three craft foam hearts as you like and hot-glue them together. (Draw and cut your own hearts, using our
  2. templates, or check your craft store for precut foam hearts.)
  3. Glue the hearts to the wide end of the hair clip and let the glue set.
  4. Cut a heart from the card stock. Write your message on the heart, then clip the barrette to it.

Suggested messages:

Valentine, we click!

Our friendship is "hair" to stay

I (HEART SYMBOL) your friendship
