Syria is in My Heart Necklace {Tutorial}

Can you believe it’s been over a year since our last Syrian craft?  Back then we talked about the Syrian people and the suffering that they are enduring.  Well, here it is, one year later, and things are not better.  In fact, they seem to be getting worse.  Today we wanted to make this Syria is in My Heart Necklace so we can hold them close to our thoughts and prayers.


Fold your paper plate in half and draw out half of a heart on one side.  Cut out the heart shape.

Draw a green line about a third of the way down color in the top half of the heart.  Draw a black line at the bottom half of the heart and color in that part black.

Color the three star shapes red.  Notice we are honoring the new Syrian flag for this project by using the three red stars.

Glue the three red stars down in the center of the heart.

Tape down the paperclip to the back of the heart.

Thread the ribbon through the paperclip.

Wear the Syrian flag close to your heart.
