I actually bought this wicker heart from Hobbycraft last year, but over the year it had disappeared to the back of my craft cupboard. And with some berries left over from Christmas I figured this was a great opportunity for a quick and budget Valentine project. (Which by the way, you could totally use for Christmas too .. win/win!!)
PSSSS – did you know, Hobbycraft still have them on their website (and for only half the price at the time of writing this post too!!)
And if you don’t have any red berries left over from your Christmas haul, Amazon can help you out!
Trust me when I say this is the EASIEST craft which will only take you a few minutes!
I started with removing the ribbon and separating the strands of the red berries.
It just gives you a lot more flexibility when you’re covering the wicker heart.
Attach one of the strands by intertwining it with the rattan.
If needed, add a bit of hot glue to stick the berries in place.
By the way .. see my mini glue gun? This little cutie was only £6.99 from The Range.
Take the next strand of berries and push it in between the wicker to keep it in place. Again, hot gluing down some berries as you go.
Keep following this process along the whole of the heart.
I know, I know! This picture isn’t the prettiest but it literally was a “spur of the moment” craft at our dining room table. I just grabbed an envelope to protect our table and catch any hot glue mess!
Finally, add a pretty messy bow and you’re done! I used some left over ribbons, but the heart ribbons came from The Range.
And that’s really all there is to it!
Seriously, wasn’t that the easiest?
It would look pretty in your Valentine Tree too! Have you seen my tree yet? You can find the blog post right here if you need some inspiration!
But I think I prefer it just on its’ own! It’s simple, but SOOO effective!
And there you go .. short and sweet!
