Valentine's Day Shaker Craft

Here's an original and musical Valentine's Day idea. Make a tambourine-like shaker instrument from paper plates and jingle bells.


  • 2 paper plates
  • red paint and brushes
  • scissors
  • small red and pink pom poms
  • little jungle bells
  • 1 zip lock sandwich bag
  • glue
  • tape
  • stapler


  1. Trace and cut out a heart in the middle of one of the paper plates.
  2. Paint the outside of both hearts red(inside, too if you want). Allow to dry.
  3. Cut a zip lock sandwich bag along the sides to make a clear piece of plastic big enough to fit over the heart hole like a window.
  4. Glue and tape the plastic window on the inside of the heart plate.
  5. Put some pom poms and jingle bells on the whole plate.
  6. Glue the edges of the plates and sandwich the plates together, then staple the edges to secure.
  7. Make lovely Valentin's Day music with your shakers.
