How to make a heart (for your crush) for the first of may
After a German tradition, the girls offer their crush a heart like this. They secretly bring it to his house in the night from april 30th to may 1st and attach it next to his window :)
Choose the colors you want your heart to have. I chose white and red :) You will create a heart with your crush's name's first letter in it.
Supplies :) styrofoam is too big to store inside :D
Draw a heart on your panel (took several tries :P )
Use an old kitchen knife to get rid of the rest of your styrofoam. If you can, do it outside. I would also recommend doing it over a trash can as it is a bit messy.
Draw your crush's name's first letter in it. It hasn't got to be very good, you'll cover it with roses anyway.
Cut crepe. Should be like this
Cut garden wire. For me, this length works but try it yourself, you'll see what's best.
This is what you want your roses to look like. Don't worry if they're not exactly like this. Some people's roses are bigger, others smaller :)
Cut off the end of your roses, but be careful to leave enough crepe so it will stay together.
Put the roses into the heart.
One thing added: I prefer using waterproof crepe, because if it rains a beautiful heart can turn to a nightmare ;)
I hope you enjoyed this guide and that you will try it even if it isn't your tradition :) could also be a cute valentine's day gift or so. Thanks for reading me! :)
