  3.  Sprinkle glitter onto all surfaces of heart until completely covered. Gently shake off heart and set onto non-stick surface to dry completely. Return excess glitter to container.
  4.  First insert straight pin into rochaille bead and then into pink bead. Insert pin at an angle into foam. (Note: Small beads keep heads of pins from slipping through holes on large beads.) Insert beads all around front inside and outside edge of heart. For hanger loop, use point of foam cutter to make 1/2″ slit into center top of heart. Apply glue to ends of cord and insert into slit. Let dry. Place in window to get reflective light from beads.
