The flowers are so simple to make and are a great beginning project for those learning how to use a scroll saw or a jig saw. First we found a heart shape that we liked. A large heart (about 7 inches) for the flower and a small heart (about 3 inches) for the stem. You can make these any size you want based on your needs. We traced the heart onto wood and cut with a scroll saw.
1 inch Pine Wood
1/2" wood dowels
Heavy Wire (fencing wire works great and you can get a roll for under $5)
Craft Acrylic Paint
Paper & Mod Podge
On each large heart, we cut a straight edge at the bottom where we later drilled a hole and inserted the dowel. We also drilled a small hole at the bottom to fit the wire in each small heart leaf. Next, we painted the hearts, dowel and wire. After painting we Mod Podged scrapbook paper to each wood heart. Finally, we glued the hearts to the dowels, and twisted the wire around each dowel to create leaves.
