Kunin® Classics™ Felt with permanent marker.
Cut out large hearts using pinking shears and scallop shears for fabric. If you don’t have pinking shears, cut fun patterns around the edges with straight scissors.
Cut out small hearts with straight scissors. TIP: Cut inside all the traced lines for a clean, finished project.
Match up large and small hearts in pairs. Add chenille stems in complimentary colors. The kids and I love using a variety of fun color combinations for these heart people.
Attach the small hearts to the large hearts with a glue gun and glue sticks. If crafting with younger children, liquid craft glue works, just figure in drying time.
Cut chenille stem into four equal lengths with scissors. Cut stem in half and then cut those two sections in half again. Bend the ends of two sections of chenille stems into legs with rectangular feet and the other two into arms with circular hands.
Attach the arms and legs to the Kunin Felt heart bodies with a glue gun and glue sticks. Tuck the cut ends of the chenille stem arms and legs in between the felt layers to cover any sharp wire ends.
Cut one half inch by one half inch squares from Light Pink and Candy Pink Kunin® Classics™ Felt and then trim those squares into circles with scissors to create cheeks. Attach two cheeks and two wiggle eyes to each Heart Person with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Using a permanent marker draw a semi-circle smile onto the Valentine’s Day Heart People from cheek to cheek. If crafting with the kiddos, use a washable marker.
I hope you will use my Valentine’s Day Heart People project as a jumping off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity and create some fun and colorful Valentine’s during this season of LOVE! Switch up the colors to match YOUR child’s preferences, the possibilities are endless!
Felt is an easy, versatile and forgiving medium which allows you to create affordable but trendy projects whether you are a beginner or an expert crafter!
