Craft Time...

I realize Valentine's Day was over a week ago, but I am going to post this craft anyway.

On Valentine's Day we made sticky hearts. I got this idea from Family Fun.

Mix 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1/4 cup water until smooth.

Heat the mixture over medium heat until thick and translucent...

Allow the mixture to cool.

Cut several pieces of yarn into 12 inch pieces...

Place a heart shaped cookie cutter on a piece of waxed paper.

Have your child push each piece of yarn into the glue then place the yarn inside the cookie cutter...

Brad got to help with craft time once again.
That was my Valentine gift to him.;)

He was thrilled to pieces.

Make sure to run each piece of yarn between your thumb and forefinger to remove the excess glue...

Allow to dry overnight, maybe longer...

Once dry attach a ribbon to the top and hang to display.



You could make flowers and attach a pipe cleaner to the bottom for a stem.
Or maybe shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day.

Have fun with it!


  1. How fun is that? You could also make Shamrocks for the next holiday or maybe even pretty Easter eggs! LOVE this!

  2. DUH! Apparently I read too fast and skipped the last part of what you said about the Shamrocks. Oh well....Great minds think alike!

  3. This is a great craft idea! I loved the winter ice cube craft you posted the other day too. Hope you dont mind but BW and I are gonna have to copy off of ya and try them out. Keep the great ideas coming!

  4. I'm totally doing this w/ the girls - so fun, easy and versatile! :) Thanks for sharing and love to the fam...xoxox
