DIY Fabric Heart Decorations Using Remnants

DIY Fabric Heart Decorations | DazzleWhileFrazzled.comI have three young kids. Enough said, right?! When I don’t have to put them in car seats, take them out the same car seats 15 minutes later, give my “We’re in a parking lot, stop fooling around” lecture and then yoga breathe as I zip around the store…just to buy craft supplies. Yeah…

So when I teamed up with a group of friends to come up with a crafty creation using supplies we already had at home (read: no trips to the store), you can guess that I jumped at that challenge!

Come see what #CraftyDestash I came up with by riffling through my overflowing fabric box…

DIY Fabric Heart Decorations

– Fabric remnants
– Barbeque skewers
– Sewing thread (Don’t have a sewing machine? Here’s a basic one to learn on!)
– Straight pins + Sewing scissors (Here’s a great sewing kit.)
– Heart shape templates (I used heart cookie cutters)
– Polyfil
– Vintage sewing wooden thread spools

Step #1:
Assemble the fabric scraps. Remember to double up the fabric so you get both a front and back! I used cookie cutters to trace three different heart shapes and sizes.

Step #2:
Pin the two fabric pieces together. Sew around the perimeter, leaving the bottom area open. If desired, add a double seam.

Don’t wan to sew? You could easily do this using a hot glue gun.

Step #3:
Insert the poly fil. Insert the barbeque skewer. Sew shut. (Be mindful not to sew over the skewer as it could break your machine.)

Step #4:
Insert the end of the skewer into a variety of vintage wooden sewing spools. To ensure the Fabric Hearts stayed upright in the spools, I wrapped the bottoms with a small amount of plastic wrap.

These Fabric Heart Decorations would also look cute as a Valentine’s Day plant stake.

    I can relate, Victoria!! You saved a trip to the craft store, recycled some fabric and did those pretty hearts, that’s fantastic!! Thanks so much for sharing it

    I love this concept, my new years resolution was around using what I have instead of buying more so these ideas are perfect.
    My kids are all big now so I don’t have the same popping to the shops issues as you, can I just reassure you that it doesn’t last forever and one day you will once again be able to ‘pop’ somewhere instead of having to pack and organise for an expedition!
