Glittery string of hearts for Valentines Day


I made these strings of hearts using o rings (in the jewelry section of craft stores) and the glittery hearts were from Wal Mart and only cost .97 cents a package. I only needed two packs to make mine and it is at least a couple of yards long. The hearts were in the Valentine’s Day section but they have things like this at most craft stores too.


  • o rings (Get the kind that can be pulled open and then closed. The slip in kind won’t work for this.)
  • hearts (I have seen lots of different hearts sold as table scatter or scrapbooking supplies)

Step 1.

Punch a hole in each side of the hearts. I used an eyelet punch but any small punch will work. You can use an ice pick if you don’t have one.


Step 2.

Slip the o ring into the first hole. Connect the next heart by slipping the o ring into that hole. I used the kind that you just spread open and then squeeze shut. It’s a lot easier than trying to feed them through the other kind.  Repeat this step until your string of hearts is long enough.


About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
