How to Make a Kissing Dangle Decoration for Valentines Day

Are you still looking for decorations for Valentines Day?  If so, then I have the craft for you today.  In this post I’m going to show you how to make a Kissing Dangle Decoration for Valentine’s Day.  It’s an easy craft, but turns out really beautiful to hang up for Valentines Day.  Plus, making this craft is a lot of fun…. almost as much fun as it will be seeing people’s reactions when they find out you made this decoration yourself.  So, grab the materials needed and let’s get started.

Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade  will show you how to make this, step by step.


Materials Needed

– 4 recycled valentines cards
– white paper
– scissors
– thick thread
– pencil
– paper glue
– assorted color beads (I used blue, red and white)


Step 1

Take the card with the smaller width and draw its width on the white paper.

Do the same with the card with the smaller height.

Complete the rectangle…

… then cut it out. This is the maximum size that can be used on all the cards.

Draw a heart inside this rectangle. Make it as large as you can.

Cut it out.  This is our heart template.



Step 2

Place the template on a card …

… and draw the outline.

Cut it out, then fold it in half.

Do the same for all 4 cards.


Step 3

Apply a layer of glue on one half of one heart (on the back)…

… then place another heart over it. Press well.

Do the same to add another heart. Now we have only one left.


Step 4

Take the thread and make a knot on its end.

Add the blue bead…

… and make another knot over it.

Add the red bead …

… and make another knot.


Step 5

Apply a layer of glue on the center of hearts.

Put the thread there…

… add glue and the last heart over it, like this.

Make another knot.

Add the last bead and make the last knot.

Now your kissing dangle is ready! Hang it where people can see and enjoy it.
