While it might be stating the obvious, nothing quite says “Valentine’s Day” like that classic heart shape. To give the official mascot of this frilly, love-filled holiday its 15 minutes of fame, we set out to create an armload of DIY mini heart piñatas — one for each of our guests at a pre-holiday Saturday soirée. They were the perfect little DIY way to share the love this Valentine’s day!

- Kraft paper cut into 2″ x 1″ strips
- Heart shaped stencil (we used a cookie cutter)
- Masking tape
- Craft glue
- Tissue paper
Using your stencil and pen, trace the heart shape onto cardboard, and then cut the shapes out carefully with a pair of scissors. You’ll need two heart shapes for each piñata you want to make.
