If you are in need of a quick Valentine’s Day decoration, then this yarn wrapped heart is the perfect solution! Since this project is so fast to make, you will have your house decorated with yarn hearts in no time at all! Read on down for the full, FREE tutorial!
I found this awesome wood scalloped heart for only 99 cents at Michaels the other day and knew it would look perfect all wrapped in yarn!
I love that it came with a hanging loop so it would be ready to hang up when I was all done.
To start my project I used Lion Brands Vanna’s Choice yarn in Scarlet,White, Silver Heather and Linen. You could do all one color or change to whatever color you are feeling at the moment for yours.
To start just start wrapping your first yarn color and switch colors when you get a fourth of the way around. I used a method found at Ewe Ewe Yarns called the magic knot to join my yarn colors when I was wrapping which I found very useful.
Seriously, check out the magic knot method!! You will be happy you did!
After you have wrapped the entire heart fasten off the yarn and tuck in ends securely. Now you are ready to hang up your new heart decoration wherever you choose!
On a side note.. When I was starting my project Sam (my 3 year old) accidentally broke the heart right in the center where the two points meet which worked out perfectly for me because it actually made it 100% easier to wrap the yarn around the heart. You could break yours if you want.. It’s up to you!
See how pretty and chic it looks?!! The scalloped edges give the heart a little something extra special compared to the flat hearts you always see around. I love it!!
