A lovely little heart craft for Valentine’s Day – get the kids busy and create beautiful little homemade heart ornaments.

Simple button hearts make a really lovely home decoration – you can select buttons to complement any colour scheme or style – they are a really lovely rustic addition to a room.

Button hearts are so easy to make that kids might like to have a go at making them too.  They also make a neat handmade gift. I’m one of these people who collects nice buttons and have boxes of them – even boxes of buttons that used to belong to my grandma!
