Show your valentine how much you really love them with our oversized felt hearts!
Grab your supplies:
Two 20x30" 1/2" thick foam sheets per heart
Wool Blend Felt from Benzie, one yard per heart -we used Coral, Magenta and Lilac
12x20" sheet of glitter iron-on (we love white!)
Print out the pattern (borderless if you have that option) and tape together to make up the heart. The pattern will overlap about 1/4 of an inch. Use this shape to trace and cut out foam core pieces with a utility knife. I layered 2 sheets together to make a thicker heart.
Second, cut out 27"x27" piece of felt, lay foam heart on top and trace a heart boarder about 4-5 inches out from the foam heart. Cut notches every 1-3 inches and hot glue to the back of the heart to secure.
Third, add your heart felt phrase! I used the typestyle Antipasto from Font Squirrel sized to 280 points and cut it out on my electronic cutting machine (don't forget to reverse the letters!) -you can also trace letters on felt easily using the freezer paper method. Iron on! Imagine your sweetheart when they receive this valentine!
