Yarn wrapped hearts is so simple to make by shaping a heart from wire and then wrapping to your heart’s (no pun intended) content with scraps of wool and thread.
Everyone so thought I’d say is almost upon us, oh my gosh are you guys excited that all delicious chocolate and just snuggle up watch a movie if you are forever alone like I am, um yeah.. okay that was really sad..
Anyways if you have valentine or if you want to make something for a best friend or anything, today we are going to be making. It’s a really really cute valentine’s day, a heart with yarn wrapped around them. I think they are so adorable for Valentine’s Day, and you can use them all year round to you could just hang them up around your room, or just hang them like I did over here, I just love how these turned out and I think that the floor just gives it like it auntie kind of look, so just stay tuned for us.
The supplies that you will need to make these amazing yarn wrapped hearts:
You’ll be needing any wire cutters of your choice, you will be needing some floral wire and lastly some yarn of your choice. Um.. a scissors will be very useful.
Here’s how we will do it:
First we’re just going to be taking our floor wire and rolling out about 8 inches or so, then taking our nifty gifty flyers and we’re just going to want to cut our wire. Guys this is pretty darn hard for me this was actually really hard so just cut it until you break through the floor wire.
So once you have your 8 inch piece you’re just going to want to take the ends and start putting them in to create little bumps in your heart, and then just kind of keep pulling squeezing and pushing around until you get your shape of your heart. Make sure to pinch in the inner point of your heart.
It’s time to wrap our heart we’re just going to want to take our yarn of choice and I have this really cool yarn to take out, I’m just going to want to cut 3 to 4 yards of this yarn. Now taking one of the ends of our yarn and a part where you pinched in our heart, we’re just going to want to take our yarn and kind of line it up with it, and you kind of want to make it -the where you line it up- a bit shorter than your the part where it ends off. As you can see I kind of did it a little long, but just be careful of that.
Now we’re just going to want to take our yarn and wrap it around like I am showing you right now, just wrap it around where you put the point of the end of your string and then just put it through one of the loops in your heart like so, and then kind of come under and then go over, under, and over, and under, and over, until you have completely wrapped the inner point of your heart.
Now we are going to be taking our string and we’re just going to take it, put it over the floor wire and one point in our heart, take it and pull through, and then this what it pretty much does is it anchors the yarn that you are using to wrap your heart with. You’re just going to want to do that specific type of wrapping three times as seen.
I’m doing it again and I’m going to do it one more time at another point in my heart.
Once you’ve done that you can just wrap like crazy, just kind of go all around the heart and just have fun with this. It’s just do whatever you guys want and whatever your heart’s desire haha.. get it.
So when you finish completely wrapping your heart you’re just going to want to take the end of your piece of yarn, and you’re just going to want to thread it through one of the holes that you find in your heart. This is where it’s going to hang it and it’s really cool, it just leaves the yarn in place and you don’t have to worry about it moved anywhere.
This step is definitely optional but you can definitely take some scissors and just cut out a little saying or fries, and I have one that says I love you cuz i love you all so much.. anyways if you’re just going to want to cut it out make sure it’s pretty small, because if it’s too big it might overpower the heart and I think you guys don’t want that in your heart, I know I wouldn’t, you’re just going to want to take it and put it in their kind of weave it through the yarn that we put in our heart and.. so yeah you guys are finished.
Already guys hope you all enjoyed this and I hope you guys love your little hearts, cuz i know that i do, i love how these things turn out and i think that they are so beautiful.
They’re little advance, if you have a little trouble making them, just ask a friend maybe a parent or someone to help
you if you need any guidance. I know it was pretty difficult for me so yeah.. it’s an advanced craft so if you are advanced then this is for you.
Anyways i hope you guys liked it as you can see kind of shorten the string here, so i can hang it and it’s not a
super duper long string but enough. If you guys don’t have a Valentine i’ll be your valentine but, if you don’t want to be mine, I won’t be offended haha.. anyways have a great valentines day and I will see you guys soon.
