Free Instructions: Mini beaded Heart

The cutest mini mini make! Learn how to make a tiny seed beads heart. This little heart is very versatile, you could make one heart.... and pop it on a chain as a pendant. You could make two....and put them on a jump ring an an ear wires for a pair of dangly earrings. Or you could make many hearts, and sew them together to make a bracelet or a collar. Or they would be lovely sewn on to a little valentine's card....we could go on and on...but we'll leave you to start bead weaving! We made ours into a pendant (above) and a pair of earrings...scroll down to see!
