Make your own easy heart decorations

It’s never too early to start making Christmas decorations, especially when we’re all spending more time at home. Create time with your family this year by making these lovely hanging hearts.


They are really quick and easy; hand-sewn, making the stitches part of the decoration sew.

If you don’t have any scraps of suitable fabric, think about ReCrafting an old tee-shirt or jumper – you can also cut up left over fabric to make stuffing. There are lots of other ideas in the Buttonbag book ReCraft. 

If you want to add words – we have used Love, Peace, Joy and Hope, lightly write them in first, then go over with a simple running stitch.
