A beautiful rainbow of hearts to cheer your heart!
Here's a quick and simple make that will brighten any space. All you'll need are very basic sewing skills, some coloured felt and a bit of ribbon. You could easily adapt this project to make an Ombre version (just use different shades of the same colour) or play around with the order of the colours for a different look.
