The wedding season has begun, so I have a great suggestion for a self-made present. I made this threaded heart for a friend and it was super fun to work on!
All you need for this project are: carton, needle, thread, and a picure frame.
- Copy a heart shape and the beginning letters of the couple’s names mirror-inverted on the carton. This way you are saving yourself some erasing by simply flipping over the carton.
- Mark points along the lines in even intervals, which will serve as the stiching holes later on. If you puncture the marks before you start threading, it will make it a lot easier! Also, it helps you decide whether you have enough holes to make the forms stand out.
- While threading, you should think about every move you make and do not pull too hard on the thread or the carton will corrugate.
- The longer your thread the faster you get tangled up in it. You can easily fasten the thread with a piece of tape, so feel free to use several shorter threads.
Once the heart is completed, just put it in a nice frame and you’re done! Have fun threading!
