Tutorial: Beaded Hanging Heart

Pin It

The third instalment of my hanging heart tutorials!

This one is much quicker to make and requires very little skill, so if you lack confidence with a needle and thread, this is the tutorial for you! 
Read on to find out how to make a simple hanging heart with beads.

Time needed: 5-10 mins

You’ll need:
Jewellery wire
Assortment of beads
Ribbon, leather cord or similar
Side cutters
Round-nose pliers

1. Cut a length of wire and fashion loosely into a heart shape, leaving a few centimetres extra at either end. Don’t bend the wire too sharply else threading beads might be difficult!

2. Thread beads onto the wire. I chose to use a selection of natural-coloured wooden beads and a larger, contrasting red bead.

3. Wind the two ends of wire together and bend with round-nose pliers to make a loop.

4. Cut a length of leather cord or ribbon and tie onto the metal loop.

5. Bend the wire a little more as necessary to better define the heart shape.
