valentine's day card pocket door décor

Celebrate friendship on Valentine’s Day with an interactive artistic classroom door! Each heart becomes a pocket to hold Valentine’s Day cards and can be taken home on Valentine’s Day!
Step 1

Pre-cut colorful heart-shaped pocket backs for each student using a full 8½"x11" sheet of cardstock. Fold one sheet in half and cut half a heart using as much of the paper as possible.

Project Note: This project is to be done by a teacher. The students can help with the decorating of the hearts, but the assembly of the door is intended for adults only.

Step 2

Repeat Step 1 with white cardstock but cut these hearts slightly smaller to create the front pocket while leaving a highlight of color to pop from the back.

Step 3

Have each student decorate their heart and be sure they write their name on the front.

Step 4

Run a glue stick along the perimeter of the bottom half of the white heart; then attach it to the color heart of their choice to create the pocket.

Step 5

Cover your classroom door with the black fadeless paper.

Step 6

Glue the ends of ribbon across door to create holders for the hearts. Space each row about 12" apart with three hearts per row.
TIP: For larger classroom groups, adjust size of heart pockets as needed to accommodate all participating students.

Step 7

Use two clothespins per pocket to hang each heart pocket on the line.  

Step 8
Use the chalk to add a sentiment and drawings on the door for a finished, whimsical look.
TIP: Let the students fill the heart pockets with Valentine’s Day cards, treats or messages!
