We all love a love heart and pom poms, especially a Valentine pom pom heart card right! So combining the beautiful heart and the inspiration from our Christmas tags that were so much fun to make we got our Craft Make Play on with cutting, sticking and hanging to create some adorable love heart cards or tags. I think you’ll ‘love’ them just as much us!

What kind of cardboard can I use to make these Valentine pom pom hearts?

Although you can use any type of cardboard, the thinner the better for cutting into tags and cards. A good tip is to use recycled cracker and cereal boxes and the insides of them! You can always cover the colored side with paper. 

What if I don’t have a pom pom maker? 

You can use a fork as stated below in the instructions to wind yarn around. Or even use a piece of cardboard to wind yarn around and tie off in the middle. There are many tutorials online to make your own pom poms. 

VALENTINE POM POM HEART CARDS – MATERIALS


•corrugated cardboard 20cm X 20cm is enough for three
•plain and patterned papers
•cut out white paper discs approx 3cm X 2m
•different colored yarns
•pink, red, black fine liners
•glue stick
•scissors
•long needle with an eye for yarn (don’t worry if no needle available you can use tape!)*

….and then we did this….



INSTRUCTIONS:


STEP 1.

Taking the corrugated card cut out your love hearts making sure the corrugated lines are running vertically.
STEP 2.
Cut out slightly smaller lovehearts from your coloured and patterned papers, and glue onto the card love heart.
STEP 3.
Glue the white paper discs onto the coloured and patterned love hearts and draw on a face using the fine-line pens.
YAY! LOVE HEART COMPLETE NOW ONTO THE POMPOM
STEP 4.
If you don’t have a pompom making tool simply wrap yarn around a fork approximately 30 times then pass a 25cm piece of yarn through the middle fork prongs and ties in a knot and slide off the fork, you will have something that looks like a bow
STEP 5.
Holding the long piece of yarn cut all the loops and trim your pompom making sure not to cut the long length.
STEP 6.
Thread the long length through the eye of your long needle* and insert at the base point of heart
*if you don’t have a long needle just tape the long length in place on the reverse side of your love heart.
STEP 7.
You will see your needle coming through between the two heart arches, carefully pull through.
STEP 8.
Tie a knot to create a loop so you can then hang your love heart decoration.
STEP 9.
LOVE IT!



Now you’ve made those why not make more and just think of all the things you could do with them such as create a bunting, put onto a card, Washi tape onto the wall, hang from a door, so many ways to enjoy.
