Fun Jar Friday #34: Paper Heart Chain

Today on Fun Jar Friday~
Paper Heart Chain

This is not a new idea.  It's been all over Pinterest.  I just thought it was a fun, easy, festive fun jar addition and I was in the mood for a Valentine's activity! I have to admit, I tried making it with felt because I thought it would be classier.  

It was, quite literally, a flop.

So I did a redo in paper like every other blog told me to and it still looks cute!

All you need is come colored strips of paper (mine are 1"x5.5") and a stapler! Super doable, right?

First step, staple two strips of same colored paper together at the end.

Next, bend the unstapled ends over the staple but do not press folded.  Do not staple yet.

Add two strips of your next color so that the ends meet.  Staple.

Now bend the strips over again, add the new color, staple.  Lather, rinse, repeat until you run out of strips or the chain is as long as you want it!

See!  Super easy!  And look how cute it looks!  I just hooked each end around the ends of the curtain rod for an easy window decoration.  My oldest was a little concerned about it being up for his upcoming Pokemon birthday party but I assured him it could be removed.
