Threaded Heart

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.

materials

  1. 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.what it should look like
  2. 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.
  3. While threading, you should think about every move you make and do not pull too hard on the thread or the carton will corrugate.
  4. 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.

thread it

Once the heart is completed, just put it in a nice frame and you’re done! Have fun threading!

You can bring some flowers into the house without bothering to destroy your backyard… To craft these cute paper-flowers you simply need themed paper, colored paper, and split pins.

  1. paint a flower pattern on the themed paper
  2. cut out a circle of the colored paper to match the size of the flower and fringe it out around the edge
  3. then fasten the two items with a split pin through the middle and split the two ends on the back

There are many variations to this version, you can either add some layers to the flowers. These flowers are super decorative and make a great addition to a present or give-away for a tea party!
