Create an inexpensive hanging heart decoration from a brown paper bag or brown craft paper. You could also use a white lunch bag, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, or construction paper to create your hanging heart. Embellish it with whatever items you have on hand.


Approximate Time: about 30 minutes



  1. Cut 2 scalloped hearts from a brown paper bag or craft paper (the kind used for mailing) that measure 3 1/2 inches wide by 4 inches long.
  2. Two scalloped hearts.

  3. Pull cotton balls apart to flatten them and use as stuffing for the heart.
  4. Cotton ball stuffing on one heart.

  5. Place the cotton in the center of one of the hearts and glue the other heart on top, aligning the scalloped edges so they match up.
  6. Gluing heart on top of stuffing.


  7. Decorate the heart using a ribbon bow, some ribbon flowers, and pearls.
  8. Ribbon bow added.
    Ribbon flowers added.

  9. Use a hole punch or scissors to create two holes at the top center of each of the two rounded edges of the heart.
  10. Thread wire through one of the holes and twist it so it is secure.
  11. Attaching wire hanger through hole.

  12. Wrap the remaining length of wire around a pencil, then remove pencil so it is "springy". Thread the other end of wire through the other hole and twist to secure it. Your heart is now ready to hang.
  13. Finished brown paper heart.
