rainbow heart

We had some very warm weather in Missouri this past weekend. I spent some time raking leaves, wearing shorts! That’s just weird for a January weekend here. Anyway, that’s what inspired this project – I picked up this stick while working in the yard and this idea popped into my head. It goes to show that inspiration for craft projects can come from anywhere!

All you need is a stick, some felt, a few buttons (or not), and some twine.

Just cut out some hearts. I eyeballed the cutouts because I like them to be a little different (or I’m lazy), but you could make a heart pattern so they would all be the same. I decided to use three of each color. Next, just cut small holes in the hearts, one near the top and one near the bottom, like in the photo. Cut a piece of twine and tie it to the stick. Thread the twine from the underneath, through the top hole of the first heart. Tie a knot so the heart won’t slip down the twine. Thread the twine through the bottom hole on the heart. No need for a knot here. Then add the next heart, always making a knot after you get the twine through the first hole.

Once all the hearts are strung, glue on buttons. I’m a little button crazy, but you can leave yours plain if buttons aren’t your thing. Tie one more piece of twine to use for hanging this oh-so-1970s looking rainbow art on your wall. Enjoy!

    So going to do this with kids for a valentine’s/color learning project. What a great idea!! To be safer for the kids I will use paper towel rolls for their dowel, I knew there was a use for them soon, thanks for being so creative Betsy!!
