Heart Shaped Decorations Made Out Of Thread
Here is an interesting tutorial on how to make heart-shaped decorations for your interior. The thing is it is so easy and fun that even your kids can help you with it. And feel free to use different colors of thread and all kind of glitter and buttons to create original designs for your “hearts”.
Hand Made Heart Shaped Decorations
To Create These Cute Heart Shaped Decorations You Will Need:
- balloons (preferably in the shape of a heart);
- different colors of thread or yarn;
- PVA glue (regular white glue);
- glitters (optional);
- small bowl for a glue mixture;
- baby cream;
- needle to pop the balloon
Step 1: Inflate Balloons
If you are able to find heart-shaped balloons it would be great because it is a little easier to work with them. But if you can’t find them in a store then inflate two regular balloons and firmly tie their tails.
Step 2: Wrap The Thread Around The Balloon
First of all, you will need to prepare an adhesive mixture. Get a small bowl and mix some PVA glue with regular tap water. Spread some baby cream around the balloon so it would be easier to take the balloon out after you’re done. Dip thread in a glue mixture and wrap it around the balloon anyway you want.
Step 3: Add Glitter
Sprinkle glitter all over the balloon before the glue dries out. It will make your “hearts” sparkle.
Step 4: Remove The Balloon
Leave the heart of glue to dry completely (it usually takes about a day, but you can speed up the process using a hairdryer). After the thread becomes completely hard pop the balloon and carefully take it out. Tie some thread so you can hand your “heart” on the wall. Make several hearts in different colors and make a chaplet.
