These hanging hearts are perfect when you need to add a small something to a room but you are not sure what. They are completely customizable and can be hung up, propped up or used as coasters!
You will need:
- Glue/Double sided tape
- String/Ribbon/Laminating Material
- Hole punch/Bead
I started by taking my piece of card, which actually was an old tissue box, and drawing a rough sketch of a heart on it. You don’t have to use a heart you could use a flower or diamond etc. Once I was happy with the shape I cut it out.
Then I took the heart, traced round it and cut out another identical one, this was so I could stick them together to make one thicker heart. Rather than glue I used double sided tape as it stuck well even to the shiny side. After making sure my hearts were well stuck together I printed out some pictures I liked.
I then arranged these on one side of the heart before using a thin layer of pva glue to stick them. Rather than trying to cut them to shape before hand I stuck them down then simply flipped the heart over and trimmed the excess. Repeat for the other side.
If using as coasters now is the time you want to laminate your heart, if using as a decoration carry on reading.
You can either take a hole punch and create a hole for your string or if you are unlucky like me and your hole punch can’t reach you may super glue the side of a bead to your cardboard then thread the ribbon through once dry.
That’s it! Enjoy hanging or displaying your collage wherever you like.
Thanks for reading, see you tomorrow.
