Toilet Roll Washi Tape Hearts
These toilet roll washi tape hearts are quick and easy to make, with beautiful results, as varied as the washi tape you choose to use. They’re a perfect alternative, or addition to a bouquet of flowers, a little balloon or a decoration for a flower pot. If you write on them, voila! Handmade place settings, or even ’cards’.
Wrap a ribbon around a few and make a note on each heart of what you love about somebody – a personalized, one of a kind expression of friendship and love.
What you need to make toilet roll washi tape hearts:
You’ll need one toilet roll, one grill stick, and about 1m (3 ft) of washi tape per heart.
Miss 7 has been busy as a bee making these every night this week. As soon as the little ones are being put to bed, and a certain someone isn’t downstairs, off she goes again. I love that they are so easy to make once you’ve done a few, that she can make them independently. I love seeing how she’s figured out how she can hold the washi tape so it doesn’t get all knotted, at the same time as wrapping a heart; and how she’s started to let the shape of the toilet roll heart determine which way the washi tape goes next instead of trying to pull it somewhere else. I love seeing how excited she is about them. She’s almost exploding, needing to keep them a secret and hide them. She’s set the new standard for what it means to be pleased with what you’ve made!
To get a sealed glossy surface at the end, you can brush the hearts with clear drying glue or modge podge.
A perfect activity for Valentine’s Day… Not only making them, but why not write on each one what you love about your children, or the person you want to give them to; what about writing what your children say love is.
So many beautiful, thoughtful possibilities.
