A year or so ago we made a cute Shamrock wire bookmark that was very popular.   So we decided to make a heart bookmark this year for Valentine’s day.   This little super cute wire heart can make a much appreciated bookmark for Valentine’s Day gifts.  You should be able to make several of these in an afternoon.

We used a copper wire for this wire craft but it would be pretty using red wire or pink wire.   These wire hearts would also make super cute paper clips.  

 

What do you need to make a DIY wire bookmark:

 

Craft wire,  Craft pliers, Ruler

 

 

How to make wire hearts:

 

bending the copper wire

 

Cut 8 inch long wire from your wire bundle. You can measure a longer piece of wire if you wish to craft a bigger bookmark with bigger twirl patterns.    Hold the wire from any one open end and use the looping pliers to create a small loop at that end.

 

twirling copper

 

Coil the wire around the loop to create a twirl pattern. Keep the coils nice and loose. Coil the wire 2 or 3 times around the loop for the 8 inch wire. You can coil it more than 3 times if you’re using a longer piece of wire.

 

Twirling the copper

 

Similarly, create another twirl pattern on the other open end of your wire.  Make sure to keep both twirl patterns the same size.

 

bending a wire

 

After creating both twirl patterns on the ends of the wire, use the ruler to measure the middle point of the wire.   Bend the wire at that point and bringing the two twirl patterns towards each other.

 

 

Tighten the bend using your flat nose pliers and adjust the twirls to give the wire heart bookmark a nice heart shape.
