String Art: Valentine’s Day String Heart Craft Tutorial
Carefully unwind your embroidery floss into the starch. Just make sure to keep one end of the embroidery floss out of the starch, or you’ll never find it again.
While you are pulling the embroidery floss out of the starch and winding it into the mold, make sure you are using your other hand to pinch off any excess. You don’t want the starch to pool in the bottom of the mold.
Repeat with a second heart.
**The heart can be solid but I wanted to leave some openings.
Allow the hearts to completely dry.
When dry, they should easily pop right out of the molds. Be careful when handling them, they are on the delicate side. Use clear drying glue to stick the two halves together.
DO NOT use hot glue. I originally tried hot glue and when I tried to pull off the glue strings, it pulled my heart apart. Elmers or any clear drying glue should work just fine.
When the glue is dry, feed the twine or fishing line through the openings at the top of the heart. Then, you can tie the ends of the heart and hang it.
Here is the string art heart! All done!
