a Valentine Craft so easy a child can do it

The other day we pulled out the red pipe cleaners and some pink pony beads.  Voila!  Heart decorations.  We cut the pipe cleaners to make different sizes.

Maren also made Cupid's bow and arrow, and a flower, and
is that a candy cane?  Crazy girl.  

We decided to hang them with thread from our kitchen light.  It turned our boring fixture into a fancy valentine chandelier.

The kids like them a lot.  Especially the one that has curly cues in the middle of it, because they say it looks like a mustache, so they call that heart Mr. Mustache.
