Valentine heart window decoration

These 'stained glass' heart decorations are really easy to make.

I cut out a heart shape and laid it on a square of sticky back plastic (contact paper).

The Fairy then filled it with assorted items from our craft cupboard. When she finished I put another square onto the heart (sticky side facing the sequins etc) to make a 'heart sandwich'. I then squished out the bubbles and cut round it.

Tada! Heart shaped decorations. They would be a really fun way to introduce kids to concept of transparent and opaque.
