Heart Sun Catcher

Heart Crown
Perfect for the Queens and Kings of hearts to wear to celebrate Valentines Day. Glue hearts onto two strips of red or white construction paper and staple together to fit the size of child's head. Staple or glue strips of red and white across the top. Children can glue hearts to these strips as well.

"Hh" is for Heart Hat
