Next, print the black and white striped circle design on regular paper.

I like to cut out the hearts using my Cricut because it’s easier. However, if you want to cut them out by hand, print the heart design onto the gold glitter cardstock.

Step 3 | Cut out the shapes

Make sure that the hole in the ornament is at the top and then stick the heart to the center of the black stripes.

For a complete look, you may also want to attach a heart to the opposite side. However, if you’re crafting a large number of ornaments and the backs won’t be visible, feel free to omit this part.

Step 6 | Attach the string

Now it’s time to attach the string for hanging your heart ornament.

While I chose a black and white string to match my color scheme, you could also use thread, fishing line, thin ribbon, or an ornament hook to hang them with.
