Pipe Cleaner Heart Flowers

I was playing with pipe cleaners last night as I was watching TV. This is what I came up with. These are very easy and quick to make. Would look adorable tied with a bow onto a Valentine's Day present or glued to a card. I started making shamrocks too...St Patrick's Day is around the corner.

Materials: Red & green pipe cleaners
Age: 6+
Level: Easy

Fold red pipe cleaner in half. Hold like a V in thumb and pointer fingers. Wrap each side around your finger tips to form top of heart. Twist to form bottom of heart. Should look like a heart on a stick. See picture. Take green pipe cleaner and form small leaf on end. Place leaf at base of the heart and begin wrapping the green pipe cleaner around the stem of the red pipe cleaner. Covering so no red shows through. Repeat making smaller hearts and leaves. Wrap then together as you go.
