Valentine Craft: Beading Hearts

Beading Hearts

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

This Valentine's Day, bewitch the object of your affection with a bejeweled charm.


  • 20-gauge wire (available at bead stores)
  • Scissors
  • Pliers
  • Beads


Snip a length of wire (a parent's job) and bend it into a V shape.

String on the beads (tape the wire's cut ends first to protect smaller children).

Finish by bending the beaded wire into a heart, then twisting the ends together with the pliers.


Large hearts can hang in a locker; small versions look great strung onto a necklace, pinned to a jacket pocket, or worn, as best friends are wont to do, right on their sleeves.
