From white felt cut three hearts, two 2”, one 3”.  Cut two roof triangle pieces from corners of white felt measuring 6” by 6” by 9”. Cut one door 3” by 5” from white felt. Tip: Cut paper heart patterns by folding paper in half and then pinning on to felt for kids to cut out is easier for younger ones then cutting the folded felt. For very young children cut out the hearts for them.

3. Glue a white heart to center red heart and glue to front of door. Stack three red buttons and glue together for door knob. Glue the one long side of door opposite door knob.
