INSIDE: How to make heart home decorations using fabric remnants. Easy sew Valentine’s Day craft.
I 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)
– Vintage sewing wooden thread spools
heart home decor for valentine’s day
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.
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.
Insert the poly fil. Insert the barbeque skewer. Sew shut. (Be mindful not to sew over the skewer as it could break your machine.)
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.
