Are you and you Significant complete comic book lovers?
How about bringing your love to life with this fabulous DIY project to help add that little something with these brilliant hanging hearts....
To make these you simply need:
- Some old Comic Books (not vintage ones you wouldn't want to ruin these!)
- Nylon string
- A metal ruler
- A Stapler
- A Scalple
- A cutting mat
- A hot glue gun
To make these you want to make three different length of comic strip.
To Create these measure one inch width strip and using a pencil mark the cut lines running across the width of the comic book page. The length of the strips will depend on how large you want your gearts to be but make sure the three lengths. The smaller two should be 1 inch longer than the one before making your larger strip 3 inches longer again, so four example they should be 5, 6 and 9 inches. Cut your strips using a metal ruler, scalple and a cutting mat and be carefull!
To make the heart form take two of each strip. Use the longest strip to make your central form. Taking you nylon string attach to the centre of the long strips with the glue gun to create your hanging thread. About 1.5 inches up staple one of each of the other sizes to each side of the central form. Now take all of your strips and bend the sets around in opposite directions so that you then staple these together at the base of the centre form.
It really is as simple as that!
We would recommend going with lots of different sizes to create a truly dynamic stage and if you want much larger hearts simply add in more strip layers to make more intricate effects.
So why not get crafty with your comics to create your happy ending!
