Step 1: Carefully write the letters you desire onto the jean hearts using your bleach pen…

Step 2: Set the hearts aside and let the bleach process. Processing time depends on your denim, so you can test an area to see how long you need to leave the bleach on. I left mine on for about 5 hours.

Step 3: Thoroughly rinse the jean hearts in water and allow to dry.

Step 4: Iron the denim hearts if needed (sometimes the denim will curl up around the edges).

Step 5: With ribbon and lace, string the jean letter hearts between two sticks/skewers, attaching the lace to the skewers with hot glue.
