Are you ready for some paper crafting with me? As the Valentines Day is approaching you may like to learn how to make those super cute 3D hearts to decorate your house with or use as gift embellishment. I can truly say this little project can decorate your house all year round. It can also be a Christmas ornament! Paper ornaments are the best! Check the one I made out of felt HERE . Honeycomb paper crafting is not new to me but I am feeling sketchy about making one in heart shape. Are you ready to go with me on the journey of making honeycomb heart DIY?
Items needed to make honeycomb heart
Let’s begin and make our HONEYCOMB paper heart DIY
Get your paper ready. For this project I used only 2 sheets of paper . My goal was to have a really full heart
I freehand my hearts by simply folding my paper in half and let me tell you those folds are really important later in the process of making our paper honeycomb heart
Let’s make our heart assembly super easy by simply folding on the angle sides of our freshly cut paper heart. Those will be our markings for next step
As you can see that I repeated those folds on both ends so now I have 3 folds that will be super helpful in the next step. One fold in the middle is the one we made cutting our heart . Then I also created a cross shaped folds
I know there are lots of hearts to fold but I did that in groupings using one folded heart to be my template to fold all so things move super smooth. So excited to put all together
So let’s begin assembly process by folding hearts back to half . My go to glue for this project is Tacky glue but if you choose to make one out of felt you could use a bit of hot glue
Assembly of honeycomb paper heart ornament
As your heart is folded in half you can clearly see our folds on which you need to add a dot of glue
and begin to layer your folded hearts. Don’t worry about the middle portion yet .. we will address that in the next step
My hearts are nicely lining up. Just because I am using tacky glue I decided to wait and glue my hearts in stages
Hearts are connected and now it is time to make that honeycomb pattern. That means we need to open our stock to full heart as you see on the picture bellow
Place a dot of Tacky glue right in the middle and let it dry. Repeat that step on every full heart
Ok , all is finished and it is time to glue all togehter. Just because I ended on 2 dots as my last heart that is what I did.
I will encourage you to hold that part a bit until glue settles to make sure that honeycomb heart stays open
Time to add a little hanging element but of course it is optional ..
