1. Cut a heart shape from your red foam sheet. Be sure that you measure it to allow for the photo and some decorating around it.
2. Punch a hole in the top of the heart and loop through the boondoggle or string. Add some beads for decoration (great to learn about patterns and colour), if you like and tie it off at the desired necklace length (make it long enough to fit over an adult's head.
3. Glue your child's photo to the middle of the heart, trimming to make sure you have room to decorate! You could even use a photo of you or Dad and give this necklace to your child!
4. Decorate around the photo with heart shape stones, rhinestones, sequins, etc.
