SPEND TIME WITH YOUR GRANDKIDS THIS VALENTINE’S DAY MAKING THIS BEADED HANGING HEART! HERE IS WHAT WE USED TO MAKE IT:
- 2 pipe cleaners
- red and white beads
- basic arts and crafts supplies
Valentine Hanging Beaded Heart – Step 1
First form a heart shape with the pipe cleaners, closing the bottom by twisting two ends together. Leave the top of the heart open so you can string on your beads.
Valentine Hanging Beaded Heart – Step 2
Start stringing on the beads. Alternate between red, pink, and white in a pattern you like. Be sure to leave enough of the pipe cleaners exposed at the top of the heart to twist it together to close it, about one inch on both sides.
Valentine Hanging Beaded Heart – Step 3
Attach the ribbon to hang it by partially opening the bottom ends of the pipe cleaners and twist one end of the ribbon in as you close it again.
Valentine Hanging Beaded Heart – Step 4
Now run the ribbon up the center of the heart. Criss-cross the ends of the pipe cleaners, laying the ribbon in between and forming a loop with the ribbon, as shown. Twist the pipe cleaners closed around the ribbon. Now your hanging heart is ready to display.
You are now done with your Valentine Hanging Beaded Heart and it is ready to be displayed!
