Valentines Crafts Heart Decorations is the most super duper tutorial to make the pretty heart decorations for your home for very little cost.
We love them. You can make them stripy or all one colour. You could make them into a rainbow or make one for your man in his favourite football stripes or sports colours. You can go all patriotic and make them in your country’s flag colours.
You can make them all different sizes. They are great to make with children too for kids crafts projects.
Step 1: First of all, you need to gather together some cardboard, scissors, pen and wool.
Step 2: Draw a heart the size you would like your hanging to be and then a smaller heart inside the outer heart. Draw this to the desired thickness that you would like your heart. Our hearts were approximately 2 inches.
Step 3: cut out the cardboard heart on the outside and in the centre middle of the heart.
Step 4: The fun bit now, start wrapping around the wool on the cardboard heart. As you start you can either tape the wool end onto the cardboard and cover it over as your wrap the wool or just hold it and start covering it over with your first few wool wraps until it is secure and hidden.
Step 5: Just keep wrapping until all your heart is covered in wool. the final step if you want your heart to hang is to tie a loop of wool to the top.
You can decorate your heart with added embellishments or felt letters to personalise with a name or message. The creative options are endless! Don’t they look great. Send us your pictures if you make a heart. We’d love to see how you adapt the tutorial for your own tastes.
