Heart on a Stick

It's the first day of February & Valentine's is just
around the corner. So I'm starting early with some
blah to TADA! ideas for the day of Happy Hearts.

Blah: unused chopsticks from
those evenings when you ordered in
but decided you'd rather use a fork.

I know you have a few lurking in
your kitchen drawer.

Take out the felt
{fabric scraps or old shirts will do}.

Pair them up, secure with pins and
cut them into squares.

Cut the paired-up squares into hearts.
Seal the edges by sewing or with hot glue.
Leave a small opening.

This is where you'll insert some
fiber fill {or cotton from an old pillow}.

Insert one end of the chopstick into
the fabric heart.

Seal the opening with more hot glue.

Add some accessories.

TADA! Hearts on a stick ready to be shared.
