    Turn a handful of yarn into a hangable heart ornament using cornstarch glue. Materials Yarn Cornstarch Glue Water Heart-shaped cookie cutter Parchment paper Thinking about doing this for Milla's Class for Valentine's Day or maybe just with our friends. It is so cute! Instructions Sticky Hands, Warm Hearts - Step 1 First, make the glue by combining ¼ cup of cornstarch and ½ cup of water in a saucepan and stirring until smooth. Sticky Hands, Warm Hearts - Step 1 Heat the mixture over medium heat until it's thick and translucent. Allow it to cool to the touch. Cut yarn into foot-long pieces. Place a heart-shaped cookie cutter on the shiny side of a piece of parchment paper. Have your child push a piece of yarn into the glue to coat it. Pick up the piece and run it between a thumb and forefinger to remove the excess glue. Lay the yarn inside the cookie cutter. Repeat with the other pieces until the yarn fills the heart shape in a thin layer. With clean hands, press the yarn flat. Gently lift off the cookie cutter and allow the yarn to dry hard, at least a day. You can speed up the drying process by placing the hearts and parchment paper into an oven set to "warm" for an hour or two. Tips: You can store cornstarch glue in the refrigerator for up to a week. If the mixture gets too gel-like, stir in ¼ cup of hot water.

Valentine's Day craft. To make one heart – clip off a floral wire of proper length and bend it into a heart shape. Next, tie yarn onto that heart and pull yarn across it. After that do the same for other side of the heart. Tie a knot and cut yarn with enough length for hanging. You’re done. Repeat the process as many times as many hearts you want to see on your windows.
