Now that Christmas is getting close, I decided it was time to start decorating my room for the occasion. And the first Christmas DIY of the season is a really exciting thing for me to do. So I'm very excited about this post!
As you can now see, I have also decorated my blog for Christmas. And since there are too many Christmas posts that I would like to publish, I have decided to start publishing twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.
And now moving on to the DIY, to make this heart you will need:
- A lot of Christmas ornaments (I used balls)
- Some cardboard or paper (although this could be optional)
- Glue (I used a hot glue gun)
- A ribbon
The first thing I did was draw and cut out half a heart on a piece of cardboard.
I then drew and cut an exact half to form the whole heart.
It is okay if it doesn't look perfect. It's only to guide you and help you arrange the ornaments in a heart shape.
I arranged my ornaments on top of the cardboard heart.
With my hot glue gun, I glued them to each other forming the heart.
I started off by the two tops and continued my way down. But looking back, since my end point was a bit of a disaster, I think I would start from the bottom.
Once all the ornaments were glued into a huge heart, I glued a piece of ribbon into the back of one of the ornaments so I could hang it.
As I said before, I'm not completely satisfied with the bottom of the heart, but overall, I think it is a great decoration idea. And now you can learn from my mistakes and make yours better.
I hung my heart in the entry of my bedroom.
Welcome to my little queendom. It's always Christmas here!
