How to set up this fun pom poms craft

Lay out a sheet of clear contact paper and trace medium sized hearts. I used our Dollar Store foam hearts I had on hand from our hearts mobile post. Before tracing the hearts I folded the contact paper and traced 3 hearts on it. Using a good pair of scissors I cut the the three hearts and ended up with 6 hearts. { You could involve an older child to do the cutting }

After you have your hearts, use the same hearts outline to cut out 6 hearts from an old cereal box or cardboard.

Just when you are ready for this Valentine craft, peel the backing from the contact paper and use glue to adhere the non-sticky side to the cardboard heart cut outs leaving the sticky part of the contact paper up.

I enjoyed watching the kids create with the colorful pom poms.

After tying them up in hearts ribbons we set up the whole garland over the fireplace. The sticky part of the contact paper was strong enough to hold all the pom poms together. I encouraged the kids to place all the pom poms as close as possible so the hearts will have a fuller look.
