Yarn Hearts

Hearts made from rustic floral wire are wrapped with yarn and hung in the window for Valentine's Day.

To make these you will need: rustic floral wire (available in the floral section of any craft store - it's like wire wrapped in craft paper), wire cutters, yarn and scissors.

Clip off a length of floral wire and bend into a heart shape; twisting the ends together to secure.

Tie yarn onto heart.

Pull yarn across heart, wrap around wire and pull yarn across to the other side.

Wrap yarn securely so there is no slack.

Tie a knot and cut yarn with enough length for hanging.

You could also tuck a note inside and give it as a valentine.

    Hi – these are too cute — I had a go but had trouble getting the yarn to stay where I wound it, any tips?

    • camilla

      March 22, 2011 at 7:01 am

      Hi Trudi! I wrapped the yarn around tightly – held it in place by pinching it with my fingers until I wrapped it around on the other side. This method held the yarn in place. I hope this helps. Let me know how it turns out. Thanks for your comment!
      Take Care, Camilla

    So cute! I’m going to have my second graders make these and put them on a wooden stand. They will give them to the senior center in town for table decorations.

    I don’t recognize this floral wire. The one I familiar with looks like twist ties in a continuous length. What is this stuff you are using?

    Love this project, I would love to make this with my girl scout troop, Do you know how much of the floral wire and yarn you used for each heart? I would hate to not have enough.

    • camilla

      Kimberly, Such a great idea – this is perfect for a GS activity! I would estimate about 16″ in floral wire and about a 1 to 1.5 yards of yarn for each heart. Hope this helps – best of luck, C

    Either I am too clumsy or too amateur. The yarn is not that secure to their position. I put a few drops of superglue to make they do not slide off their position
