Begin by cutting out 5 concentric sized heart shapes from cardboard. To make this easier, I cut templates from paper first and then drew around them onto the cardboard. I then cut out the cardboard shapes using a sharp craft knife. Make holes in the largest heart where you will attach the cord. Glue the heart shapes together to make the base for your necklace.
Begin decorating your cardboard heart necklace using paints.
Once the paint had dried, we added more decorations using stickers and acrylic paint pens. Finally we added cord to make the heart into a necklace.
Here at Mini Mad Things, when I'm not busy crafting up a storm with my little ones, I also run a small online shop selling a range of eco-friendly kids ART SUPPLIES, CRAFT BOXES and beautiful art activity BOOKS. All the products that I sell are tried and tested by my awesome team of rigorous quality control experts (my little ones) and we only sell items that we love!
