Simple yarn hearts look absolutely lovely decorating your window, wreath or Valentine's Day gift.
- Rustic floral wire
- Wire cutters
- Use wire cutters to cut desire length of wire for a heart. Bend wire into a heart shape twisting ends together between the bumps to secure in place.
- Tie the yarn onto the heart around the twisted closure. Pull yarn across heart, wrap around wire and pull yarn across to other side forming a triangle shape in the center of the heart. Continue wrapping yarn around the wire and across the heart randomly until covered entirely. Wrap yarn tightly so there is no slack.
- Finish off between center bumps and secure in place by tying. Trim yarn leaving enough at the end for hanging.
CRAFTER’S NOTE: Camilla suggests tucking a strip of paper with a handwritten valentine note through the weave of yarn.
