Mothers Day or Valentines Heart

We did this today at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens and I think it’ll be a fun craft to adopt. Really easy too – all you need is some Rustic Wire, some wool, beads, ribbons and cut out shapes.

We bent a section of Rustic Wire into a heart shape. It’s a bit sturdier than a pipecleaner but looks more like a bendy twig.

After that, tie some wool to one side and weave it from side to side. Different colours look good too. We found that looping it around each edge helps hold it tighter too.

We then got a section of wool and threaded some beads onto it. These were fastened to the top of the heart once the wool threading was done.

After that we threaded some card stars to a piece of wool and did a loose knot on each one. This was tied to the bottom of the heart.

As a nice little Mother’s Day treat, H was given a tag to write a message on. I haven’t seen this bit yet, but she loved making it and writing the message.

It was a really simple craft to do – you don’t need a lot and it looks really pretty. There are so many different ways of doing this too – this is just a basic heart. I want to do this next year for Mother’s Day at Brownies anyway. It shouldn’t be too challenging for anyone.
