I love a good hack in the crafting world! If there is something I can do to make my project a little easier, I’m all for it! Today’s crafting hack is one of my favorites especially because I really don’t enjoy sewing but I DO love my glue gun! This No Sew Hanging Heart Valentine’s Day Door Decoration is easy to make and instead of sewing edges together, you hot glue them. Valentine decorations are some of my favorites to make. I love all the hearts and the colors that come with the holiday!
This No Sew Fabric Hanging Heart Is Perfect for Valentine’s Day Door Decoration
No Sew Heart Decoration Supplies Needed:
- Thick Fabric (muslin or burlap work best)
- Glue Gun
- Stuffing (wrapping paper, cotton, paper bags or newspaper)
- Red and Pink Paint
Directions For How To Make Hanging Hearts Valentine Decorations:
Gather all your supplies and head to the table. Make sure you are close to a plug for your hot glue gun. Go ahead and get that plugged in to warm up. Start with your pen and your fabric. Fold a piece of fabric in half and draw out your heart. Cut both pieces out and lay them side by side. Keep your fabric scrap for other fun fabric scrap reuse crafts.
Pick one for the front and grab your red paint. Paint the front heart red and leave the back heart plain. After you have painted the whole front heart red, grab your light pink paint and place dots on your front heart. I just used my pinky finger to place the dots on the front heart!
Let your painted heart dry for about 10 minutes. After it has dried (doesn’t have to be completely dry), grab your back heart and line the edges of half the heart with glue. Place the top heart on the bottom heart making sure to line up the edges along the glue. Next, start stuffing the side that is glued together. Once you get that side stuffed, come around a little farther with the glue and press edges together. Leave a small hole open so you can stuff the other half.
Once you have stuffed your whole heart, seal up the remaining open spot with your hot glue. Finish up by gluing a small piece of twin on the back so that you can hand it on your front door!
