Got all four of my chickens involved in decorating this
year for February. I die cut out these hearts in white cardstock,
and let them go to town with craft paint and Q-Tips.
After the hearts were dry, a simple hole punch for
ease of threading bakers twine (or you can use yarn)
and then die cut letters to spell your desired phrase.
You can also use stickers or draw directly onto
the dry painted hearts with a sharpie marker,
if you don't have die cuts for lettering.
