Fabric Heart

I am in the Valentine mood. I have a whole bunch of fun things to share over the next few days, but let's start with one you can do with stuff you probably have sitting around.

Fabric Heart

Supplies needed:
  • cardboard
  • scissors
  • fabric scraps
  • hot glue gun
  • ribbon
1. Draw a big heart on your cardboard with a smaller heart inside.
2. Cut it out.

3. Get your scraps. Mine were cut into about 1.5 inch by 6 inch strips.

4. Wrap your strips gluing the ends down as you go along.

5. Tie your ribbon on your fabric heart and hang. It is super light so I just hung mine on my pantry door using double sided tape.

P.S. Don't forget to sign up for free Tipsy updates via RSS or email.

Brilliant. I love it when I can really make something cute out of stuff I have laying around. It rarely happens, but your cardboard idea was just the ticket. Thanks!

I see these at the DI all the time. I usually see them with the peach and light green strips of fabric tied to it. So early 90's. I love your rendition of it. I am thinking that I need to go and look for a heart wreath! Thanks for the inspiration!!
