My son covered this heart frame a couple years ago with tiny beads (it was a kit from the dollar section of Target). All I remember those beads were a pain in the butt...but it turned out great. When I helped him we added another layer of glue to the top so the beads stayed. I have a confession to make...there were a couple of these crafts that year at Target and I bought a couple extra to do with Lily in a few years. They are in my present stash in the attic. Yes, I am crazy like that and I think that far ahead.
Over at Just a Girl she made one with bigger beads. Looked like a perfect project to make with Lily.
Anyway, I bought the heart & beads at Hobby Lobby. The beads were 50% off and the wooden heart was originally $1.99 (I think that the heart was on sale, too). I covered the heart with a pretty thick layer of craft glue and then dropped the beads on it. Lily had fun pushing all the beads into the glue. There were about 10 beads left when I was done. I didn't like the cream ribbon (it looks white in the photo, but it was cream) that came on the heart so I cut it off before I put the glue and beads on. After the glue dried I added a light pink ribbon to hang it.
