How to make heartstrings

What you will need:

  • Cardboard tube or old toilet rolls
  • Paintbrush and red paint
  • Pushpin
  • Needle
  • Embroidery thread
  • Beads with holes large enough for the needle to pass through



How to make it:


Cute the tube in half and brush the halves inside and out with red paint – leave to dry.

Flatten the halves, then cut them into segments. Shape each segment into a heart by pushing one creased side toward the centre. Pierces holes in the top and bottom of each heart with a pushpin.




Thread the needle and know the end. Slide on a bead until it stops at the knotted end, then loop back and push the needle through the bread again, going from bottom to top.

Thread on a heart, the add a bead just above it, using the same looping technique to secure it in place. Repeat to create a string of hearts and beads.
