So, it’s almost Valentines Day – well, not really, just in the retail & blogging world – we are full steam red & pink ahead :)
As miss V and I were working on several other Valentine craft projects the other day (and little T was snoozing)…this idea came haphazardly to fruition. But, from my experience – the best things are those that are not planned and happen by accident (i.e. the cotton candy cookies ;) With a few simple tools that, if you have a crafting kiddo (or crafting mama ;), you most likely have them at home already.
- scissors (kiddo & mama ones)
- ink pen
- buttons (I used 4, all different colors & shapes within the same hue)
- 2 small foam sheets (I used 2 pink hues)
- Start by tracing your heart shapes, printable here (if you need one ;).
- Cut out your hearts (we did two layers); V did one, I did one.
- Using your pen, mark where you want to insert the ribbon on both sides.
- Make a hole on your mark & push one end of your ribbon through the hole, leaving out about an inch.
- Once through the hole, thread the end through the buttons & secure with a knot.
- Wrap the ribbon around your child’s wrist to determine the size of the bracelet, then cut the ribbon & repeat steps 4 & 5 for the second side.
Then voilà, a fun little heart kiddo bracelet!

I have a little one who will love this activity. The foam heart will be perfect to write names on. Thanks for sharing. This will be a nice alternative to giving our friends candy on Valentine’s Day, :)
Thank you Jana!!! That’s a fantastic idea – I’ll have to keep that in the back of my brain to pull out when V gets to school!! I agree with the candy, if V could live off of gummies – she would :) Thanks for stopping by & your lovely comment! xx ♥ m
