Piano Valentine Craft (Printable & Tutorial)

Today, I have a fun little printable and tutorial to share just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The ladies in my Bible Study decided to hold a Craft Night last Friday, so I decided I to find a project to make music-y valentines for my piano students.  However, when I googled and checked Pinterest for music-themed Valentine ideas, I came up empty-handed.  So, I decided to design my own piano valentines.

I designed the grand piano shape and keyboard in Microsoft Word, and then printed the pages out on red, pink, and white cardstock paper.  After cutting everything out, I embellished the piano lids with foam stickers and felt stickers.  Using a glue stick, I glued the keyboard onto the piano shape, and then glued the whole piano onto the box of Sweetheart candies.

There is even a stick to hold the piano lid open!  That part is optional.  To make this project a little simpler, you could skip the stick if desired.

To download the free pdf for making these valentines, visit the Printables > Other Resources page and scroll down to P’s for “Piano Valentine Printable.”  Directions are included in the pdf.  Enjoy!

UPDATE:  A reader sent me this photo showing the neat variation she came up with:

UPDATE #2:  To see another piano-themed valentine printable I designed, check out this post!

    Oooh … SO cute! I made this (http://girlsinwhitedresses.wordpress.com/2011/02/09/easy-valentine-candy-treat/) last year, and planned to repeat this year, but hmmmm … I do love these. I may have to switch. Thank you so much!

    they are really cute! I tried to make one but it came out small. It should though right? It’s a mini keyboard. Great idea! :)

    What a wonderful and inventive idea. I cannot wait to make these and give them to my students. I might even make them for my early childhood music students.
