This is a fun little rainbow banner for Valentine's Day make with felt and string. Keep reading to see how to make it!
- Squares of craft felt in rainbow colours
- Bakers twine
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
- Heart cookie cutter
- Start by tracing the heart shape onto a piece of felt folded in half
After it has been traced with chalk, pin the middle to keep both sides together
Cut out your hearts. Keep the pins in. Set pinned hearts aside.
Do the same with the other rainbow colours.
Now sew both pieces together along the edge in a extra wide stitch with contrasting thread. You could also handstitch these. Leave 2 inches open to add the batting.
Stuff the batting into the heart and sew up the last inch.
Do the same with the other colours (I only ended up making one of each colour as opposed to the two I had cut out).
Thread some bakers twine into a embroidery needle and poke through the top end of one, threading it through to the other side. Make sure to put the hearts on in rainbow order.
Keep adding to the thread until they're all on.
Tada! Hang in a doorway or window!
