What can you do with these free printable heart templates? A better question might be what can’t you do? From coloring to crafts, from décor to sweet notes, the possible uses for these heart cut out templates are many!
Look, I’m sure you haven’t been walking around thinking “If I only had a heart shape template (or 12) my life would be complete….” I get that; however, just because you haven’t actively been searching for something doesn’t mean that it can’t be a great addition to your life … even if it only makes your life a little prettier to look at. 🙂 These free printable heart templates are like that.
These 12 free heart templates (different sizes available!) have a lot of possible uses. With just a little creativity, you can use them not only to brighten your day but someone else’s as well! Below are just a few of the ways you could use a heart cut out template, but of course, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. (Or should I say outside the heart?) 😉
Large Heart Template Printables
These white, pink, and red heart templates measure approximately 7.5 inches, so they are definitely large heart template printables.
Since each is (approximately) a 7 inch template, these large heart template printables will come in handy when you want to make a statement. For example, the white heart template PDF would make a great coloring sheet for your kids. They can decorate it with crayons, colored pencils, or washable markers and then give it to a loved one as a free printable Valentine card or just as an “I’m thinking of you” card.
Even though it’s already colored, the pink or red heart template could also be used in a kid’s craft project. (If you’re feeling brave, that is!) Print one out and allow them to decorate it with pieces of string, objects found outside like leaves or flower petals, or (dare I say it?) glitter. *Cue the ominous music!*
While a large heart template PDF can make for a good coloring sheet, if your kid wants to make a card for a loved one, these love themed coloring pages might also be good options!

Medium Heart Cut Out Templates
At just a smidge over 5 inches, these free heart templates are approximately 2.5 inches smaller than the large heart template printables above. If you’re looking for a 6 inch template, one of these three would be the closest option.
A medium heart shape template, like those above, is still large enough for kids to color; however, I think they’re a good size for decorating. For example, if you’re throwing a bridal shower, baby shower, or Valentine’s Day party, a medium heart template to print is a cute and budget-friendly décor option. You could hang these free printable heart templates, tape them to windows, or just sort of sprinkle them around (such as on table tops).
Of course, you can use heart templates different sizes (large, medium, small, or extra small) to give your decorations some variety. For example, string various sizes together to create an interesting banner or mobile.
A free heart template to print does make for frugal décor, but if you’re planning a party, they probably aren’t the only thing you’ll need. Here are some other budget-saving party resources!

Small Heart Templates to Print
If you’re looking for a 3 inch template or a 4 inch template, look no further than this small heart template, which comes in at approximately 3.5 inches.
My favorite use for these small heart templates? Lunchbox notes! That’s right, lunchbox notes. If you’re not familiar with this concept, it’s a super sweet way to brighten someone’s day.
All you do is write a fun, sweet, cute, or inspiring note and hide it in someone’s lunchbox. Usually, this would be your kid’s lunch, but trust me, your spouse, parent, or any loved one won’t be put out to find a sweet surprise (a guilt-free one at that!) waiting for them at lunch time! 🙂
I love the idea of writing your note on one of these free printable heart templates, and the small heart template PDFs are just the right size for hiding in a brown bag or lunchbox while still giving you enough room to write!
Love the idea of lunch notes as much as I do but struggling to come up with what to write? Instead of writing your own note on one of these heart shape templates, use a pre-made printable like:
- Printable conversation hearts – 18 options!
- Halloween lunch notes.
- Printable Valentine cards – 8 options!
Extra Small Free Heart Templates
Looking for a 2 inch template for smaller projects? These white, pink, and red heart templates are just a smidge over 2 inches in size and would be perfect!
These extra small heart cut out templates are great for adornments. For example, you could use them to decorate a scrapbook page or a homemade gift (such as the outside of a Mason jar). These 2 inch free printable heart templates are what you reach for when you want to add a little extra something special but don’t want the heart shape template to be the star of the show.
You can use these free heart templates different sizes (large, medium, small, and extra small) in a variety of ways. They’re great for creative endeavors, both your own and your kids’, and for putting a smile on your face or someone else’s. So, if you’re ready to have a little heart (haha), get that printer going! 🙂
