Beaded Heart

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.

It's adorable! My daughter would love this, but I can just see the mess of beads that I would find on my floor for the rest of my life!

Really cute!! But I have to agree...BEADS + KIDS = BIIIIGGGG MESSSS!!! EVERY time I let them near the beads, they get spilled (ours are in a big gallon ice cream bucket), and I am picking up beads for WEEKS!! I don't give them the WHOLE bucket...I'm not THAT bad!! :D

I don't think that's crazy at all! I think your just gearing up for when your little girl is bigger and you can do crafts together-Nothin' wrong with that ;-)

Those are SUPER cute!!

Happy Friday ^.^
