Pretty Little Valentines Fabric Heart

This is a fun craft that you can easily do with your kids or if you are sitting around watching TV.
A beautiful Fabric Rag Heart

The best part ?  You probably have all the items you need already in your home! All you need are fabric scraps,  a wire hanger, silk flowers. This makes a great addition to your front door, or a simple gift to a hostess.

  • Start by bending a wire hanger into the shape of a heart. Twist off the hook- hanger part)


  • Cut fabric of your choice into strips ( I used about 70 strips) 5 in long by 1  or 1+1/2 in.

  • Tie around the hanger as many strips as you like, form into small bows.

Just completely go around the entire wire!

  • Add some silk flowers, ( you tie these into the fabric knots as you go along) Later you can apply a bit of hot glue if you want them to sit better.

You can tie in lolly pops or chocolate candies if you are giving this as a Valentines gift.

I wanted to be able to store it away, so I chose just flowers, and a little tulle.

Just place the rose buds in strategic places of your choosing!

  • Add a twistie tie to the top portion of your hanger
  • Hang your finished product

It does require a bit of time to tie the fabric onto the hanger, ( maybe an hour) but I find it relaxing to do while I watch TV. And the results are well worth the time invested. ; )
