Here's a quick project you can do in front of the TV in an evening. It's so easy and so much fun, even the kids could make one of these. And the best part, it's really cheap.
I picked up this wire heart for about $3 from Spotlight. But you could make you own shape from an old wire coat hanger if you wished. Good recycling as well.
Those bins of scraps that never seem to get used are just perfect for this project. Just find fabrics in suitable colours or go for a jumble multi-coloured mix like I did.
Cut narrow strips about 15cm long and fold them in half. Wrap them under the wire and loop the ends through the loop. Push them really tightly together for a nice firm look. The ends seem to stay up straighter this way too.
You could hang a fabric heart down from the centre too. Not sure whether or not I will. I quite like the simple look of the bare wall. I've had another three orders for these already - thanks girls!
I'm on a bit of a craft roll at the mo. I have another project to show you next time that I really, really love. I'll give you a clue. It's made from some really old fabric.
