Folk Valentine Hearts

Folk Valentine Hearts

In this Valentine's Day project you will learn how to make folk valentine hearts from recycled wool, felt or left over fabric.

What you need

Needle & Thread


1) First cut out two equally sized hearts from your choice of fabric.

2) With your needle and red thread sew on the buttons/findings of your choice onto the front of the heart.

3) Next whip stitch your fringe/lace/tinsel around the heart.


4) Now stitch together the back of the heart to the front of the heart leaving an opening at the top.


5) Stuff the heart with a cotton ball and then stitch it closed.


Display your hearts in a bowl or basket. These are easy to make and inexpensive, and look so cute displayed around the house for Valentine’s Day.

    These hearts are great!!! I’m going to make small hearts (silver dollar size) and add pin backs — will be perfect brooches!

  2. So Cute! Love It!

  5. Fill them with potpourri and keep them in your drawers to make your clothes smell nice. Small children would need a lot of help or they could use fabric glue. Needles are for older kids.
