|Pink dove from Ormolulu, |
Red Feather Butterfly from Bountiful Home
Valentine Fat Book from a Red Lead Swap.
Pliers (round nose, smooth nose, or needle nose)
Ribbon (I used Midori silk, double-faced satin and velvet)
|Cut wire to about 14" long. Use round nose pliers to make loop and then bend wire by hand into your shape.|
|Attach end of wire around inside of first loop and crimp closed with pliers.|
|Cut 1 to 1 1/2 feet of ribbon to wrap around wire (depends on how large you make your heart). |
Tie around wire at top of heart. Leave a little tail at the top.
|Wrap, overlapping slightly each time around.|
|When you reach the end, tie off at the top to the existing tail of your starter knot.|
Trim ends as you like.
|A group of hearts....|
You can add bling to your loop or bend up with pliers for hanging.
Here I added a chandelier crystal to the pink heart.
But it could be beads, charms, another heart.
