I always notice the pretty paper straws at the store, but I’ve heard they are not great to drink out of. When I was at Walmart the other day, they were just putting out Valentine’s Day stuff and I saw these cute heart straws. I bought a couple packages and had an idea, but my original idea didn’t work out. That happens sometimes with crafting, but you just keep thinking and something magical happens. Kids will love creating this picture frame Valentine’s Day craft for kids! It’s perfect for the classroom, class parties, elementary or preschool, and makes a cute gift for parents.

Cutting the paper straws for an easy Valentine's Day Craft for Kids

Let’s Create a Paper Straws Valentine’s Day Craft for Kids

The first step is to cut the straws in half to create the picture frame. Cutting the straws can either be done by the students or precut by an adult depending on the age of the child. I used my new craft mat and it was so easy with the ruler on the side.

Cut a piece of card stock, just a little bit bigger then the square shape of the straws so about 5.5 by 5.5. You can make the card stock any color you would like.

Glue the straws onto the edge of the card stock and a glue stick worked great! That’s why this makes a great classroom party craft because the kids can glue this easily.

Add embellishments to the corners of the straws. I used foam glitter hearts from the Dollar Tree that I already had. They are not adhesive so I used hot glue. For the classroom I would use self-adhesive heart stickers.
