I made this heart last year to include in my Valentine’s Day decor. I had so much fun making these, I thought I would do a quick tutorial.
To make one yourself, you will need:
1/2 Yard of Burlap
Silk Hydrangea Flowers ( Just pull of stems)
2 Chandelier Crystals
50-55 inches-19 Gage Steel Wire ( I found mine at Atwood’s)
Glitter ( I used silver German glass glitter)
First, cut out 4 burlap petals. Hot glue and layer each petal to form a four leaf clover look.
Next, pull a hydrangea blossom off a stem, and hot glue it on the center of the burlap petals. Next, add a little glitter on the petals.
After assembling 11 petals, I cut 50 inches of steel wire. Simple poke your petals through the burlap and space them out along wire. After forming your heart, make a loop at the bottom like this.
Then, twist wire together at top and form your heart.
I hang a chandelier crystal from the bottom loop and from the twisted wire at the top of the heart.
I also make these in a circle wreath shape. Here, I used blue hydrangea petals. Enjoy crafting!! By the way, I would love to see your end products. Simply email me!!
A little update on sis… She is doing better every day. She had her post-op appt. in OKC last week, and her doctor said that she was doing great!! He expects her to be able to return to normal activity in about a month. Thanks so much for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.
