Hearts In Windows Brings Happiness!

Sharing is caring!

We are creating a rainbow of hearts in the windows this weekend! Why? To spread positivity, solidarity and hope to your neighborhood right now!

Have you heard about this world of hearts trend? Today I am sharing how we made a rainbow of hearts in our windows that look out our front doors!

This trend of displaying colorful paper hearts in windows reminds families out getting fresh air that everyone is in this together.

The idea behind the movement is to spread hope during harder days, and it has caught on quickly. Have you seen it? On social media people are sharing colorful hearts in their windows and calling it  “A World Of Hearts”.

And of course on a simpler level- this activity is something fun to do with your kids that they will enjoy – with a great message behind it!

How To Make A Rainbow Of Hearts In Windows

There are so many ways to do this project. Since my kids were looking for something to do one afternoon, this felt more like a family project to do together! I wasn’t looking for perfection. 

However, if you are looking for something more polished, you could use a your Circuit machine or card stock for perfect looking hearts!

We cut our hearts right out of construction paper, into about 5 different sizes. Depending on the sizes of your windows, you might need a lot. To make this go faster, we didn’t cut one by one.

For most of the hearts, we folded the paper lengthwise three times, and cut half of a heart out on the fold. This way, each time you cut half of a heart you will be left with four hearts.

I liked dropping the smallest hearts along the bottom of the window, and gradually getting bigger as they go up. To give the the hearts in the windows a rainbow effect, I used the paper that was the color of a rainbow and gave it a bridge along the inside of the door. We just used regular scotch tape to attach.

The kids loved this project. Even my middle schooler wanted to help out – which was useful, because it took us about an hour.

These windows on our front door run alongside a busy sidewalk in our neighborhood, so it is a great spot to spread happiness. But inside they make us surprisingly happy also! Keeping little fun reminders of happiness is what we all need right now, while we wait for normalcy to come back to the world.

On social media, people are using the hashtag #aworldofhearts and sharing their photos of hearts in windows. Here are some favorite photos of mine below, from Instagram.

I hope you feel inspired to create your own world of hearts like this too! Even just a few larger hearts in windows can look so happy and cheerful right now!
