Directions

  • Sizes
  • 1. Sizes are 3”x4”-5"x7".
  • Streamers
  • 1. Cover work surface with newspaper. Spray paint clothespins white; let dry.
  • 2. Hand-cut hearts in two different sizes, in two different red patterns and two different pink patterns. Cut enough hearts to string across door, window, or other desired location. (Note: To make patterns, first cut hearts from cardstock or recycled manila folder.)
  • 3. Cut one paper heart in half and adhere halves to front of two different full-sized hearts of same color but different pattern using permanent hold; let dry.
  • 4. Use temporary hold to adhere trim to back outside edge of one large heart. Adhere second heart of same size and pattern to back of first heart, hiding lace edge.
  • 5. Sew straight stitch around front edges of heart, catching lace edge securely. Zig-zag stitch down center of heart.
  • 6. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 for remaining hearts.
  • 7. Tie twine to clothespin and hang hearts as shown.
  • Tip
  • 1. Use a die-cutting system to cut out the hearts; you’ll make hearts faster and they’ll all match up perfectly.
