Easy DIY Valentine Yarn Wreath

I can’t believe Valentine’s is just around the corner, I have a super fun and easy tutorial for you on how to make a Valentine heart wreath.  The boys were busy making their cards to hand out last night so I got busy crafting.  If you have extra yarn laying around you are all set!

I traced a heart onto a piece of cardboard and cut the heart out.  I then measured about 1″ along all edges and cut out the inside. Don’t be looking for perfection, any jagged edges will be covered with yarn.

I cut about 20 inches of yarn, tied a knot around the cardboard heart and began wrapping around and around and around.  (tip, if you double up on the yarn meaning 2 strands of 20 inches,  it goes much quicker)
When you come to the end, tie a Knot and repeat the process until the whole heart is covered.

Attach a ribbon if you would like and you are all done!

  1. This is so pretty. I have that sort of yarn which seems cute but then is actually quite hard to knit or crochet with, this is a lovely idea for it.
