How cute are these yarn wrapped hearts – Perfect for gifting!

It’s a little bit late to be sharing these for valentines day but we made them a couple of days ago and I think they are just too cute not to share! These little hearts are so sweet and fun to craft and are fab as little handmade gifts for children to make and gift for valentines day, mothers day, fathers day, birthdays and much more. The best part is that they’re so simple and quick to make too!

Here’s what you’ll need

  • A peice of cardboard (an old box will do!)
  • Yarn
  • Stapler or tape

How to make these yarn wrapped hearts

Take a piece of old cardboard and cut out the base shape of your heart. Attach the end of the yarn onto the heart using either tape or staples.

Wrap the yarn around the heart several times until you get a nice thick and puffy heart shape. Don’t worry if the yarn slips during the first couple of rounds, it gets easier as the heart gets bigger and you have more yarn for it to catch on. Once you’re happy with the size of the heart, snip off the yarn and tie your loose end around one of the strands on the heart before gentle tucking the loose end into the heart.

To use the yarn heart as a hanging ornament simply cut out a length of yarn, thread it under the yarn at the top centre of the heart and tie it into a knot.
