I think Valentine’s day comes at the perfect time to break up a little of the dreariness, that post-Christmas January always seems to bring. And who doesn’t love a little candy and flowers?!? I know I wouldn’t say no to either 😉 I don’t usually go all out and decorate for Valentine’s day- but I do like to add a few touches of pinks and red to my decor. It always helps adds a little cheer and whimsy to the house, during these cold winter days. And these soft, yarn wrapped hearts where just the ticket! They are so easy to make, I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. Now I have all these ideas running around my head for yarn wrapped things…but for now we’ll just stick to the hearts.
Supplies you’ll need:
Yarn – any color and thickness (mine was a little on the thicker side)
1 piece of paper
Hot glue gun
I cut two different sized heart shapes out of the paper for a template. Then I traced those hearts onto the cardboard, and cut them out.
Next I used a little bit of hot glue on one of the cardboard hearts to secure the yarn. Then I just started wrapping the yarn around the cardboard, until it was all covered and I liked the way it looked.
I then hot glued the end piece of yarn to the back of the heart to secure it…and you’re done!!
This is such a quick and easy DIY to add a little Valentine’s day fun to your decor…without spending a lot of money. I actually had all of these supplies in my craft stash!! I know, you’re completely shocked…I get it 😉
Hope you have a fabulous day sweet friends!!
