What you need: Popsicle sticks, air clay, beads, gems, buttons, pipe cleaner, hot glue, wax paper.

Step 1. Arrange Popsicle sticks to make a square. Glue 2 sticks on the sides fix them together.

Step 2. Make a heart shape with air-dry clay that will fit in the middle of your plaque. Use wax paper so the heart doesn’t stick to the table.

Step 3. Decorate your plaque with beads, gems and buttons. Glue heart on the plaque.

Step 4. Add beads to pipe cleaner and then glue to the back to make a hanger.
