- 1-Inch or Wider Lace Ribbon
- White Chenille Stem
- 2 Rhinestone Hearts
- Thin Ribbon or Monofilament
- Craft Glue
You will start out with a piece of ribbon that is about 14-inches long. Fold over one of the long edges about a 1/4 of an inch and sew it to form a tube. Cut a piece of chenille stem about 4-inches long. Fold over one end of the chenille stem and slide it into the tube you made.
The ribbon will be gathered tightly on the chenille stem. Twist the ends of the chenille stems together and then shift up the lace to cover the ends. This will end up looking like a tiny, lace wreath.
Put a dab of glue on the back of both heart-shaped rhinestones. Glue one in the center of each side of the lace wreath. Let dry.
This makes a wonderful Christmas tree ornament or Valentine's Day decoration. Add a ribbon or monofilament for hanging or only glue a rhinestone to one side of the heart and attach it to homemade cards or add a pin back and you can wear it.
