It's almost Valentine's Day...That means, you have an excuse for adding hearts to things like paper straws.
What's better than showing your Valentine you love them than sharing some ice cold milk and a cupcake? Sticking a paper straw in that ice cold milk with a felt heart reminder that you 'heart' them.
This quick and easy felt heart can be made in a few simple steps.
Start by cutting out your hearts. You'll need two hearts a piece, preferably the same color.
Using your needle and thread, do a running stitch to secure the front of the heart to the back of the hear. You'll need to leave a portion of the top and bottom of the heart unsewn for the straw to fit through. When you get to very top and very bottom of the heart, instead of doing the running stitch through both layers of hearts, simply go through only the top layer, leaving a hole or pocket for your straw.
If you'd rather not 'sew', secure the hearts together with tacky glue instead.
Slip it onto a pretty paper straw and sip with love.
Your heart could also be used as a pencil topper. The perfect inspiration for all your love letter writing.
Inspired to go make one of your own?
Or maybe you now want to go drink some ice cold milk and eat a cupcake...that's OK too.
