Beaded Heart Ornament Craft Kit
Perfect gift for Mom or Dad
These beaded hearts are so pretty and very easy to make. I would recommend this product for kids in First Grade and higher. This is a great gift for parents, grandparents, or any other family member.

The string of beads is too short to wrap around the entire ornament the way it should according to the instructions. The beads are heavier that the pipe cleaner can support and it is nearly impossible for the ornament to keep a heart shape.

Very nice product
Hung these on my Valentines tree. They are really pretty. Recommend tying heart at top and not bottom as it is much easier. Highly recommend.

Simple and Satisfying
These adorable hearts were easy to make and didn't take long to make at all. They were perfect for what I needed. I liked how each kit was wrapped individually -which is great for kids. I have to agree with stuckinJersey though that the mini pearls were not long enough if you wanted to wrap them around each red bead. You would have to wrap them around every two beads to make them work. Overall quality was ok, but you get what you pay for.

Beaded Heart Ornament
I don't like these. I bought them to use as ornaments, on my 2 foot tree for Valentine's Day. The dark red beads are bigger than I would like. Using all 26 beads as the instructions say, the heart is more than 3 inches and the string of pearls is too short. I used 16 beads. They are hard to shape into a heart, no matter how many red beads you use. However, using 16-18 beads makes the ornament smaller, and the pearls will be long enough to go all the way to the end. You have to use hot glue on each meeting to get the pearls to stay in place. The paint flakes off of the red beads, and some of the strings of pearls are missing beads. All in all, they were entertaining , but not good enough to show as an adult project.

Got these to keep my girls busy. The five year old could easy string the beads, but she had trouble wrapping the pearl-like ones and got easily frustrated with that part. The eight year old could do everything except the hot gluing, which you need for the bow, and I used hot glue on the bottom to hold everything together. It was a bit a

Got them tomake toattach to Valentine gifts...I did need to get stronger craft wire for them to hold their shape...They turn out very nice.

These are beautiful.
Love these hearts- but the kit needs some minor adjustments to really make it work. The enclosed pipe cleaners are just too limp to hold the heart shape. I purchased craft wire and that works just fine! The pearl beads are a bear to glue on, so I used glitter ribbon instead, which was a bit easier to work with. Regardless, the ornament is really pretty and worth the adjustments I had to make.

Beaded Heart Ornament
I have been purchasing craft projects through OTC for a couple of years now that my daughter hands out to her class for holiday celebrations. We have always had a couple of kits left over and have made them at home. Both my daughter and 6th grade son enjoy making the kits. I think this one will go over wonderfully for her class on Valentines Day this year.

I think the beads should be a darker red or change the color of the ribbon
