|Hi everyone! I'm so thrilled that Amy is featuring this project over at Mod Podge Rocks! If you are coming here from her site and you'd like to see my updated Valentine's post with a few new ornaments I made, please click here! |
|I am so excited to share my craft experiment with you that actually turned out amazing! I have been fascinated with photos of paper quilling and got the idea to reproduce a similar visual effect using strips of felt. In my earlier tutorial about DIY Felt Monogram Ornaments, I showed you how I stiffened felt circles using liquid starch. I wanted to experiment a little more with this process since it turned out so well with the circles. |
Before you get started, you need to know that the starched hearts will take about a day to dry. Ok, now are you ready to see how I made these too- cute- to- put- away -after -Christmas ornaments? Here's what you'll need and the steps you'll need to take:
|I used a glue gun to carefully glue small sections of the delicate fabric together until it felt secure. I added a generous amount of glitter Mod Podge to help firm up the felt and add a little holiday sparkle!|
I love the look of whimsical hearts so much, I plan on putting them somewhere in my house after Christmas so I can admire them beyond the season.
If anyone decides to try and make these, I'd love to see what you come up with! Just send me a link below.
Thanks for reading!
Linking up with these parties and this party.
