I am always excited to get my Valentine’s Day decor out and up, sometimes right at the beginning of the new year. It’s some of my favorite stuff. I love the colors, all the tones of red and pink, and hearts are kind of my thing. I’m always on the look out for ways to make more. Using the multitude of plastic bracelets we have laying around (each packet holds so many!) we created cute stained glass glue hanging hearts, just in time for Heart Day decor!
DIY Glue Hanging Hearts
- plastic heart bracelets
- white craft glue
- wax paper
1. Color the glue. You can pour out some of the glue into a small dish and tint it as you desire with liquid watercolors. Or you can add the color to the bottle itself and get to shaking. I liked having the tip for the design-making.
2. Tie a length of string or thread to each plastic bracelet. Trim off the excess.
3. Lay out the plastic heart bracelets on a piece of wax paper and start filling them with the tinted glue. Allow the glue to dry. The glue might shrink some and pull away from the edges. Add a little more around the edge if that happens.
4. Once things have completely dried, gently peel off the wax paper and they are ready hang.
Now you’re done, that’s it! Your hanging hearts are ready for some string. Place them in a window for the stained-glass look or even just a few hearts hanging together in a mobile style for some fun Valentine’s Day decor!
Feel the love!
