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.

    I love this project! It looks so cute! and I think my toddler could help wind the yarn around the wire.

    I featured this post on this week’s High Five! – Be sure to check it out!

      Thanks Jamie! This is definitely an easy craft for a wide range of ages – glad you like it 🙂 Take Care, Camilla

  20. Melissa  February 12, 2011

    This is great! I would love to try this!

  21. trudi  March 22, 2011

    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

      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

  22. Alexandra  December 30, 2011

    Thank you for this. I have a new boyfriend (Yay!) and these would be perfect for valentines day in a couple of months 🙂 Xxxxx

  23. seemommycraft  January 13, 2012

  24. marilynn  January 17, 2012

    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.

  25. Julie @White Lights on Wednesday  January 17, 2012

    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?

  28. Kimberly  February 2, 2012

    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  February 2, 2012

      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

      • Kimberly  February 3, 2012

        Thank you so much! I can’t wait to make these !

  29. Shoregirl  February 3, 2012

    What a neat idea! I featured it in my Valentine Round up this past Wednesday…
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  30. Martee  February 8, 2012

    We are making these with our high school Career Lab class of Special Needs students for decorations for our Valentine’s Day party! SO FUN!

  31. Heather  February 14, 2012

  34. Verity {belle bébés}  February 4, 2013

    Belle Bébés featured this awesome tutorial today 🙂

  35. Nicholas  May 1, 2013

    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

  36. Sant  May 30, 2013

    Great!!!! Excelent craft, i love the hearts.

  37. Web Design Blackburn  July 27, 2013

    This is just adorable!
