Locket of love

It's so simple to look yet adds such a touch to elegance that your mom feels great.

Crafting:
Choose ribbons in pattern variations on your chosen color scheme.
Alternatively, use patterned and plain fabric, carefully cut into ribbon strips.

All you need:

plastic covered garden wire:
of 50-60 cm(20-24 inches) thick,
piece of florists' wire,
ribbon of two shades & varieties:
of about 7.5 m long & about 2.5 cm(1 inch) wide
and also
of length 0.5 meter & width of 5 cm/2 inches.
scissors,
needle,
thread

Steps:

1
Step 1 Twist the thick wire into a heart shape and bind the two ends together securely in the center with florist's wire. Cut the narrower ribbon into approximately 15 cm/6 inches in length.

2
Step 2 Double a length of ribbon and knot it over the wire. Repeat with more ribbon knots until the wire is completely covered.

3
Step 3 Fold a 20 cm/8 inches in length of wider ribbon to make a bow loop and hold it together with a couple of stitches.

4
Step 4 Loop the rest of the wider ribbon around the middle of the bow loop and shape into a pair of tails. Secure with a stitch or two.

5
Step 5 Attach the bow at the center of the heart to cover the florist's wire. Trim the ends of the ribbon into swallowtail shapes.

Bend the wire into a hook shape from where the swallowtail hangs. Now fit it with a colored thread or string before placing it over your mom's neck.
