Today I saw polystyrene cut out hearts that brought back memories of scrunchy wreaths I once made using polystyrene rings. I wondered if the cut out hearts would work just as well, but to no avail, so I came u with plan B. I had these
lying around from another project and the idea came to me to make the scrunchy valentine hearts using them. This is what I landed up with.
This is what I did.
Step 1: Cut a piece of fabric 3" X 60".
Step 2: Fold the cut piece in half lengthwise and sew leaving a 1/2" seam.
Step 3: Use pinking shears to cut along sewn edge. You now have the outer casing of the heart.
Step 4: Take 2 of the pipe cleaners and twist them together.
Step 5: Inset the twisted pipe cleaners into the sewn casing.
Step 6: Once inserted. Secure the top by sewing the pipe cleaners to the top (see pic below).
Step 7: Gather the remaining casing so that it meets at the opposite end.
Step 8: Pull the end pieces together to form a circle. And sew ends together were they meet.
Step 10: Tie a length of ribbon into a bow and sew onto heart at the top.
Step 12: Viola your scrunchy heart is ready to hang.
