DIY Valentine's Day Hearts

With Valentine's Day just around the corner we are going to show you how to make some beautiful hearts. These can be a lovely handmade gift for that someone special in your life. These are really easy and can be done in under an hour!

Air Dry Clay / Fimo
Heart Cutter
Rolling Pin
Drawing Pin

For Decoration you will need;

Lace Elements
Letter Stamps
Acrylic Paint
Paint Brush
Red Twine or Ribbon

Begin by rolling out the clay so the surface area is big enough to cut out the heart

Place the heart cutter in the middle of the clay and cut out the heart 

Place your pin at the top and wiggle around to make a hole big enough to push ribbon through

Use your found elements to create texture on your heart and use the letter stamps to spell out love, Valentine etc...

  Place on some foil and bake as per the instructions on your air-clay packet

If you want to paint your hearts we like to use acrylic paint and build up the colour, it gives a lovely water colour effect

Finish your hearts off with twine and ribbon, so it's ready to hang...

We hope you liked our tutorial, we find that these are really easy to make and can be
 a stunning handmade gift!
