Felt scraps, in your color choice (multicolor would be cute too--I might try a rainbow next!)
-Decide on the size of hearts you want, and cut out one for each button (except the very top).
-Fold each heart vertically and cut a tiny slit, big enough for a button to slip through, but not too big.
-Once you've cut all the slits, slip the hearts over the buttons. And you're done!
This second DIY is not one I saw on Pinterest--but I won't say I came up with it myself, since it just seems easy! Cutting the slits in the heart for the shirt got me thinking how easy it might be to turn those hearts into a little hair decoration--I made this one a little larger, though.
Felt scrap in desired color
- Cut heart out of felt (it might also be fun to layer colors--for more advanced crafters!
-This time, fold heart over horizontally and cut two small slits in the center. I cut right under the fullest point of the heart on each side, to make them even.
-Slide your bobby pin over and under so it's through the slits...and you're done! A sweet little hair clip in no time at all!
ALSO: I just learned THIS about bobby pins...is your mind blown as much as mine?!
Could I have found a cuter, more photogenic model? I don't think so.
So, there you have it! Two adorable, no-sew, no-fuss, eco-friendly crafts to create a couple festive little pieces to wear on the Day of Love!
