Craft Lightning Valentine's Day

I made this heart ornament in about 5 minutes with just a few supplies . . .

pom pom plus mini cookie cutter heart


  • miniature heart cookie cutter favor (1.5″)
    (I found mine at the dollar store, but you can find these favors online by using the “miniature heart cookie cutter favor” phrase.)
  • pink pom pom, larger than cookie cutter opening
  • scissors
  • ribbon netting scrap
  • pink string to hang
  • decorative scissors (optional)

Let’s begin!

Step One: Tie the ribbon netting scrap around the heart cookie cutter near the top.

Step Three: Squoosh the pom pom into the cookie cutter to flatten it a bit into the heart shape.

Step Four: Trim up the pom pom so there’s not much sticking out of either side.
