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)
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.
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.
