I had so much fun designing and making this little delight. I loved it so much, I even made one for each of my five sisters :) Don't tell them!
*various shades of felt. Don't you just LOVE the sparkly felt? I think it's what I love the most about this project.
*fabric scissors/pinking shears
*heart pattern in two sizes. I traced cookie cutters onto a cereal box and cut them out. This worked really well. They held their shape great while i traced them almost 60 times onto the felt.
*pencil/pen (for tracing)
First I cut all my hearts out, then randomly paired them up. Using the spray adhesive, I sprayed only the backs of the small hearts. On the first heart, I sprayed both the small and large hearts, but soon found that all the exposed parts of the large heart remained sticky (I thought it would dry non-tacky, but no such luck). I let them dry overnight, then assembled the next day.
A dot of glue on the top and bottom 'points' of the heart was just enough to secure it to the ribbon. I cut a 1" square spacer out of scrap felt to make sure the hearts were spaced equally apart. Finally, a little ribbon loop for hanging glued to the top heart, and it was done! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
