Cut out heart shape and trace onto a piece of red construction paper. Cut out shape. 
Step 3
Outline the edge of the heart with a marker. 
Step 4
Bend the heart so that the two bumps on the top are touching the point on the bottom. Cut two small, vertical slits for threading the yarn. 
Step 5
Using a pencil, trace both of your hands onto a piece of purple construction paper, or color of choice. 
Step 6
Cut out both hand shapes and outline the edges with a marker.

Step 7
Cut two strands of yarn long enough to wrap around someone you love.

Line up the yarn strands so they are even and slide the strands of yarn through the slits in the yarn.  Slide the heart to the center of the yarn.

String colorful pony beads onto the yarn on either side of the heart. Spread out evenly, or as desired.
