My daughter's class will be having a Valentine's card exchange soon. She requested a bird theme. Here is a Valentine's bird card holder tutorial. All of the supplies I used, I already had at home.

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • red acrylic paint
  • paint brush
  • 2 paper plates
  • scissors
  • heart foam sticker
  • hot glue
  • glue
  • ribbon
  • button
  • 1 pipe cleaner


  1. You will need 2 paper plates.
  2. Freehand and cut out a bird silhouette.

  4. Paint your bird silhouette. (Since my paper plate is red I did not have to paint the other plate.) Allow paint to dry.
  5. With the paper plate scraps, I cut out a triangle piece as the bird's beak and glued it down. You could also cut out feet with the scraps, but I made feet with pipe cleaners instead.
  6. I used two foam heart stickers as the feathers.
  7. Glue on a button as an eye.

  9. Hot glue the paper plates together.
  10. Poke 2 holes through the plates and thread with ribbon and secure with a knot. Ready to be hung. At school they're hanging their Valentine's card holders on their coat racks.
