How cute are these yarn wrapped hearts – Perfect for gifting!
It’s a little bit late to be sharing these for valentines day but we made them a couple of days ago and I think they are just too cute not to share! These little hearts are so sweet and fun to craft and are fab as little handmade gifts for children to make and gift for valentines day, mothers day, fathers day, birthdays and much more. The best part is that they’re so simple and quick to make too!
Here’s what you’ll need
A piece of cardboard (an old box will do!)
Stapler or tape
How to make these yarn wrapped hearts
Take a piece of old cardboard and cut out the base shape of your heart. Attach the end of the yarn onto the heart using either tape or staples.
Wrap the yarn around the heart several times until you get a nice thick and puffy heart shape. Don’t worry if the yarn slips during the first couple of rounds, it gets easier as the heart gets bigger and you have more yarn for it to catch on. Once you’re happy with the size of the heart, snip off the yarn and tie your loose end around one of the strands on the heart before gentle tucking the loose end into the heart.
To use the yarn heart as a hanging ornament simply cut out a length of yarn, thread it under the yarn at the top center of the heart and tie it into a knot.
Winter is well on it’s way and the weather is certainly getting colder. The last couple of nights I’ve found myself waking up to put the heating on and wearing a pair of socks to bed! Some parts of the UK have even seen snow over the last few days. I do love snow, it looks beautiful and it’s so much fun to play in, we love snowball fights, building snowmen and tobogganing – there are some great hills around here. However, we live in a small village in the middle of nowhere so its not the most practical! My son is desperate for a white Christmas and with the weather being like it is at the moment it definitely seems like it could be possible. Maybe it’s time for us to stock up the food cupboards in case we get snowed in! All this talk about snow is what what inspired today’s craft, this wobbly paper plate melted snowman. Isn’t he fun?
To give the snowman that melted look, take a pair of scissors and trim around the edge of the paper plate to create a wavy pattern.
Cut out a circle for the snowman’s face (we cut ours from a second plate), then make a spring so that it can be attached. To make the spring all you need to do is cut out two equal strips of paper and glue them at a right angle. Take turns folding one strip over the other and once you reach the end glue the two loose ends together.
Give the snowman a face by gluing on two round eyes, a mouth and a carrot shaped nose.
Glue one end of the spring to the center of the paper plate and then the snowman head to the remaining end. Cut out two twiggy arms and glue one either side of the snowman’s head.
Finish off the adorable plate snowman by adding any extra melted decorations; we added a top hat, some buttons and some mittens. Leave to dry and your snowman is finished!
