Here's how to create Easy Felt Heart Valentine's:
To begin the Dollar Tree Crafts Felt Heart Pocket People, gather all supplies. Kunin Classic Felt Craft Cuts are perfect for kid's crafts because felt does not fray like traditional fabric. Download, print, and cut out the Felt Heart Pocket People Patterns below ⇓ If making a large quantity, trace the pattern onto chipboard and cut them out with scissors for added durability. Trace the large and the small heart patterns onto Shocking Pink, Fuschia, Candy Pink, Bright Lilac, Red, and Baby Pink with my favorite permanent marker the Tombow MONO Twin.
Cut out the large hearts using pinking shears and scallop shears for fabric. If you don’t have pinking shears, cut fun patterns around the edges with straight scissors. Cut out the small hearts with straight scissors. TIP: Cut inside all the traced lines for a clean, finished project.
Mix and match the large and the small hearts in pairs. Add chenille stems in complementary colors. Kids love using a variety of fun color combinations for these heart people. Attach the small hearts to the large hearts with a glue gun and glue sticks, leaving the top open, and creating the pocket. If crafting with younger children, liquid craft glue works, just figure in the drying time.
Cut each chenille stem into four equal lengths with scissors. To accomplish this easily, cut the full chenille stem in half and then cut those two sections in half again. Bend the ends of two sections of chenille stems into legs with oval feet and the other two into arms with circular hands. Attach the arms and legs to the felt heart bodies with a glue gun and glue sticks. Tuck the cut ends of the chenille stem arms and legs in between the layers of felt to cover any sharp wire ends.
Cut one-half-inch by one-half-inch squares from Baby Pink and Candy Pink Kunin Felt and then trim those squares into circles with scissors to create cheeks. To create the face, attach two cheeks and two wiggle eyes to each felt heart with a glue gun and glue sticks. To finish the Felt Heart Pocket People, use the MONO Twin permanent marker to draw a semi-circle smile from cheek to cheek. If crafting with the kiddos, use a washable marker. I love drawing and tracing with the MONO Twin Permanent Marker from Tombow because it has a large bullet tip and a small extra fine tip.
