Create your own Valentine’s Day artwork with Heart Mosaics! Use a tracing of your hand to form the tree trunk and branches, then fill in the gaps with Heart Mosaic leaves. Follow the complete tutorial below!
Duration: 10-15 minutes
This is a fun and simple craft to make with basic materials. You could even adapt the project artwork and use it to create the front cover of a large-sized Valentine’s Day card!
You can use any color of Skintone Paper to make your handprint tree. For this project, I used a specific color of Heart Mosaic leaves to fill in the tree gaps, but your students can use whichever colors they like best.
You can start laying out the Heart Mosaic leaves around the “branches” of the handprint. Angle the direction of the Heart Mosaics outwards from the center handprint.
Overlap various sizes of Heart Mosaics to get a fuller look for your tree.
