Valentine’s Day Felt Conversation Heart Craft

I love how pretty these felt hearts look when finished. The best part? Kids of all ages can make them!

Preschoolers can practice fine motor skills by using a cotton swab to dip into the glitter glue and “paint” over letters, traced out for them by an older sibling or adult.

Elementary school age children can practice spelling and writing. They can also practice tracing and cutting using our printable heart pattern, available in our printable library.

Six different colored felt hearts (pink, orange, purple, green, yellow, and white) with words written in glitter glue (BFF, Love You, Cutie, Be Mine, XOXO, Sweet) with candy conversation hearts spread out around them.

When all of the conversation hearts are dry, hang them on the wall or place on your desk to turn these into cute Valentine’s Day decorations.

Another option is to create a lovely homemade heart banner or garland.

Just add a length of twine to the back of the hearts with scotch tape or use a needle to thread the twine through each heart and hang when finished.

These felt hearts also make great homemade gifts. Let the kids give them to friends and family as a fun and easy DIY Valentine.

Plan a fun afternoon creating these cute conversation hearts made out of felt and enjoying stained glass heart sugar cookies! Maybe include a plate of cookies as part of the gift too.

These conversation hearts are lightweight and can easily be added into Valentine’s Day card for a sweet surprise for your friends and family to receive in the mail.

Felt Conversation Heart Craft Supplies:

How to Make Felt Conversation Hearts:

Print out the heart template (file 124 in our free printable resource library.) Cut out the heart patterns to trace on the felt.

Please note: The template includes a couple different sizes. The medium size was used for the hearts in these photos.

Trace the heart onto the felt. I recommend using an air soluble disappearing ink for tracing, especially on the white felt. 

Washable markers also work for tracing. Just be sure to make sure the trace lines are on the back side of the felt.

Cut out the felt hearts.

Now it’s time to decorate! Use glitter glue to write on each felt heart.

Squeeze a light amount of glue to spell out fun conversation heart sayings. Examples include:

  • Cutie
  • Love You
  • XOXO
  • BFF
  • Sweet
  • Be Mine
  • You Rock, etc.

Allow time to dry before hanging, making a banner, or including inside a card.
