How to decorate a crochet heart

  • Now when the heart is ready, add the cord. I made a short cord, but you can vary the length as you wish.To make a cord like mine, just crochet 20 chains. I attached a tassel to the end of the cord.I also used jewelry accessories to decorate my bookmark: a stainless steel feather and heart. Using the ring, I attached the tassel cord to my crocheted heart. I put a feather in the same ring. I attached the steel heart to the crocheted heart with hot glue. You can also use a needle and thread for this.

Bookmark ready! Now you can put it in a beautiful gift box and it will undoubtedly delight your friend on Valentine’s Day.
