How to Make and Weave a Woven Felt or Paper Heart Basket for Valentines Day



Crafts Materials Needed

– Felt or Colored Paper of 2 Different Colors (7 inches x 2 inches)

– Scissors

Difficult Woven Heart (Easier One is Below)

Step 1



fold paper in half



Take the 2 pieces of paper (each 7 x 2 inches) and fold it in half as you see above so that it looks like the image below.

Step 2 (Do This Step Twice … One Time on Each Paper)

Now cut on the dotted lines…which means round the side that opens (while it is closed). On the creased edge, cut 4 slits, equally spaced out as you see in the diagram above.


Step 3



Step 3 : Weaving Paper Felt Hearts Craft Idea for Children



Now this is the weaving part of the craft. Take strip ‘A’ on the yellow paper and weave it through the pink one. Notice that you don’t simply weave it…you slip the openings over the fingers (they look  like hands / fingers to me). Then after you have done this, go to letter ‘B’ and do the same thing, except this time go over number ‘1’. Take a look at the image below to see how it should turn out.

Step 4

    I love this craft. I was trying to do the the one with the more fingers but could not get the hang of it. Then I tried the smaller one and I found it so easy to do. So now I could make the bigger.

    Thanks for the initiative to show the smaller one. This craft is really great. I know my little kindergartens will be able to handle doing the smaller one.

    I’m so glad that doing the smaller craft helped you do the more difficult one. 🙂
