From scrapbooks to kid crafts, printable heart templates are a must have in any craft lover’s bag of tricks. Here are 20 great ideas to use printable heart templates for your every day craft projects.

Fabric Craft Patterns

Use a printable heart template as a pattern to cut out fabric hearts without the inaccurate method of folding and cutting. A good heart shape template will help you cut out perfect hearts every time. String them as a banner, put them on clothing, or whatever your crafting needs demand.

Heart Templates


Use a heart template to trace perfectly symmetrical hearts when either drawing or painting. Your hearts will come out in uniform size and shape every single time.

Bleach Art

Use a printable heart template to create beautiful bleached heart patterns on any piece of dark, or colored fabric.

Simply print out a heart shape template, cut it out, and place it on any piece of fabric you would like embellished with a beautiful bleached heart design.

Take a spray bottle full of bleach, and spray it until you get that perfect bleached look you’re going for. Then simply remove the heart template and enjoy your newly embellished piece of clothing, table runner, or any other fabric craft.

Coloring Project

Printable heart templates make great coloring pages for kids. Simply print out the template, and let the kids use their imaginations to color in the hearts.

Spray Painting

Use heart shaped templates as patterns for your spray painting projects. Cut out the heart and use the open space in the paper as a stencil to create perfectly shaped and totally uniform hearts on your any desired projects.

3D Heart Art

You can use paper heart templates to make paper heart art. There is more than one way to do this.

One fun and easy way to do this craft is to print off three heart templates, and cut them out. Then, fold each one vertically with a sharp crease down the center. Then, put all the creases together so heart sides are aligned. Glue the touching sides together, and you’ll have a beautiful 3D heart.

Printable Heart Template



Print off a number of paper heart templates, and cut them out. Then, use your imagination to create beautiful, and perfect heart shaped valentines. Hand write a love note, or use scrapbook embellishments to create unique, handmade, and individual designed for all the people you love.

This is a great craft to do with kids. Print off the heart templates, and help your kids make valentines for their friends.

Heart Pockets

Use paper heart templates as sewing patterns to sew easy heart shaped pockets. Simply cut out a paper heart, and pin it to a piece of fabric, and cut out a perfect heart. Then, put the pieces so the fabric pattern is facing in, and pin it together to hold them in place.

Then, sew together the v-shaped bottom of the hearts. Once you have the v-shaped sewed together, flip the heart so the fabric pattern is facing out, and iron over the whole seam.

Sew a ribbon to the tops of the bumps on the heart to create a little purse for a child, or use these pockets to stuff with goodies and give them as gifts.

Heart Pillows

Much like creating a pocket, create this craft by using the paper heart as a template, turning your fabric inside out and sew it together, except it is recommended that you sew further up onto one of the bumps at the top of the heart.

Then, turn the heart right side out and stuff it full of cotton batting, or fluff. Then, fold the un-sewn edges of your heart pillow down, and sew them together.

Use fabric paint and pens to further decorate your adorable new pillow.

Easy Heart Puzzle

Entertain your kids cheaply, and easily by printing off a heart. Have your kids color the heart template however they want.

Then, cut it out, and cut the heart into several oddly edged shapes that your kids can easily fit back together.

Your children will love putting their colored heart back together.

Four Leaf Clovers

Make 3D four leaf clovers by printing off four paper hearts onto green paper, cutting them out, and folding them vertically down the middle to create a seam. Then, glue the hearts in a tight circle onto a neutral colored piece of paper.

Repeat this process, and then glue the backs of the two neutral pieces of paper together around a green pipe cleaner.

This is most easily done with small hearts. It can be done with large hearts. Replace the pipe cleaner stem with something larger like a cardboard paper towel roll painted green.

These are great for St. Patrick’s Day.

Heart Shape Template

Felt Patches

Use a template to cut out perfect felt hearts and sew them on to scarves, elbows of sweaters, or knees of children’s clothing.

This adorable craft adds charm to any piece of clothing.

Wire Hearts

Using a template and a stiff piece of wire, create the base for a beautiful wire wrapped heart craft.

Bend the stiffer piece of wire into the exact shape of the template. Then, twist the ends of the wire together at the bottom point. Then, use other colors of wire, and wrap it around the whole heart in different directions, and different ways.

This creates a lovely, whimsical decoration that can be used at any time of the year.

Paper Butterflies

Use a template to create beautiful butterflies out of heart shapes and black pipe cleaners. Glue two hearts together with the points overlapping about an inch. Then, use a pipe cleaner to create the body of the butterfly. Twist the pipe cleaner together at the top to create the head, but leave out the ends to create the antennas.

Heart Flowers

Print off several hearts and cut them out. Then, roll one heart into the smallest tube possible.

Roll all the other hearts, one by one, around this tube as tightly as possible. Then, pinch the bottom and flair out the top. Using a crochet needle and some pipe cleaners, thread a green stem through the center of your newly created bulb.
