Honeycomb Hearts Light Strand

Hello everyone!  Amanda here today.  I love Valentine’s Day parties partly because the décor is so easy.  Slap a few hearts on the walls and you’re good to go.  But this year, Valentine’s Day party décor can be kicked up a notch with some super fab We R Memory Keepers DIY Party supplies.

I’m normally a traditionalist when it comes to Valentine’s Day party colors, but there’s something extra fun about the purples, yellows and greens in the conversation heart color palette.  The conversation heart colors on this honeycomb hearts light strand are festive and fun and will work for any Valentine’s Day party.

The bright colors on these honeycomb hearts make them look good enough to eat!  Each bulb on the light strand has a little post that you wrap the honeycomb around making them fit perfectly.  The lights peeking through the honeycomb is so much fun!

These honeycomb hearts require two pieces of honeycomb paper to make a complete 3D shape.  Trace and cut two hearts, with an opening in the middle for the lights, and adhere together.

After you have adhered the two honeycomb sheets together, adhere a folded cardstock backing to both sides of the shape.  TIP: Let liquid adhesive dry completely before opening up honeycomb shape.  Your shape may be weird and wonky if you open it up while wet (trust me).  I also placed my hearts under a heavy object so they would be nice and flat.

After the cardstock backing has dried, open up your heart and attach the two sides of the heart together.

Mini paperclips are perfect for holding 3D honeycomb shapes together.  It only takes a couple to hold each heart together.  Plus, you can easily remove your honeycomb hearts and use them again next year.  Bonus!
