I got this idea from Family Fun Magazine (Feb.2011 page 24)
A heart cookie cutter
Yarn cut into 6-8 inch strips
Mixture of flour and water in a bowl
(Family Fun used a different glue concoction using 1/4 C. cornstarch and 1/2 C. water in a saucepan until smooth and then thick and translucent. Use after cooled)
Press yarn down
And press down some more
(I couldn't pick which picture of my daughters pudgy fingers to use, so I used them both)
My daughter LOVED this craft. She made 4 hearts.
We left them outside to dry and over two days they were dry (they were thick and saturated)
I'm not sure where to put them yet, for now I put them on our wreath
1) If you do the flour/water mixture, the fluffy yarn holds together better.
If you only have regular yarn, give the cornstarch mixture a try.
2) A larger cookie cutter will allow you to make thinner hearts that will dry faster.
