Supplies:

  • Cardstock: white, pink, red and patterned 
  • Baker’s twine
  • Glue or double sided tape
  • Brother Scan n Cut
  • Printer
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors

Make it: 

Make heart cut-outs in medium and large sizes, the medium and large sizes in colored and patterned stock.  To make it easy, I like to use my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out multiple hearts in various sizes.  Alternatively, you can draw the hearts freehand and cut them out yourself.

Next, download this printable file to create the small hearts for the center of your layered hearts; I prefer to print them on white cardstock but you can use any color to coordinate with your project.

Print and cut out these hearts. The loving sentiments will add all that you need to say to your hanging heart chandelier.   You can also create your own sentiments using one-or two-words like you would see on the conversation candy hearts.  Here are some of my favs:

Love You – You’re Mine – Kisses – Love – Hugs – Be Mine – My Love – Happy Valentine’s Day

Cut a piece of bakers twine the appropriate length to fit the space from the light fixture down to the table or countertop.  Cut multiple pieces of twine to create several strands of hearts at varied lengths so the finished chandelier has long and shorter pieces.

Measure and cut several pieces of twine - Jane Clauss - Hanging Hearts Chandelier

The basic concept is to create a sandwich of paper hearts on top of the twine. First by gluing the twine to a large heart, then a another large heart on top, followed by gluing a medium heart on top and finally a sentiment on top. 

You will want to place each heart evenly on top of one another to create a border effect. Repeat these steps to make several layered heart piece.

middle layer of medium heart on top of the others - Jane Clauss - Hanging Hearts Chandelier

Add a sentiment to the tops of all the hearts - Jane Clauss - Hanging Hearts Chandelier

To assemble, place a large heart right side down and dab a line of glue down the center of the heart and lay the twine lengthwise own the center.  Add some glue to the outer edges of the heart and place another large heart on top, sandwiching twine in the middle.  Repeat this process all the way down the piece of twine leaving a few inches in between the hearts.

Continue to glue hearts onto the twine spacing them apart from one another - Jane Clauss - Hanging Hearts Chandelier

TOP TIP:  Leave extra twine at the top so you can create a loop to hang it or tie it to the existing light fixture.

And finish the bottom with a heart so no twine is showing.

Alternatively, you can punch the top and bottoms of each heart with a hole punch and tie them together with the twine.

Finish each piece of twine with a layered heart piece at the end.  Check the strand of hearts for any big gaps and finish by adding any extra hearts on the twine to fill.
