Fabric week: Hanging heart with Candi

Isabelle's turn today with a beautiful altered polystyrene heart. Isabelle used the same technique she had used to alter her Christmas baubles. I remember making one at Christmas and it was great fun.

As the fabric is soft, it's easy to use it to cover polystyrene shapes. The same way I had done with my Christmas Baubles, but this time I will use a heart.

So I chose to use a polystyrene heart, a piece of white cotton on which I stamped a (Crafty Individuals) fan and some Candis. I am using them as sequins

As it's a more complex shape than the bauble, it will be easier to add the fabric if you cut the heart in several places. You then insert the fabric with a tool (you can you the Stampbord scratch tool for example)

Add some cord and lace to hide the sections you have cut, glue your embellishments et voilà

Products used

If you want to watch the video Isabelle made last Christmas (in French.. for the baubles), here it is.
It will show you how to "attach" the fabric to the polystyrene shape.
