Family Sponge‘s Jen shares this cute craft for Valentine’s Day.
I love Valentine’s Day, but not for the candy or the gifts. I love it for the abundance of hearts displayed and love demonstrated. There can never be enough love in the world, and Valentine’s Day is a reminder of that. These heart-shaped ornaments are so cute and fun to make. The kids made these to put up near the windows for Valentine’s Day, but I want to keep them hanging year-round.
- wire (paper-covered floral wire)
We cut the floral wire into various sizes to make different sized hearts. Next, I bent the wire into the shape of a heart and wrapped the first round of yarn around the center to create a frame for the kids to follow.
My daughter took over and picked out a different color of yarn to add to the heart. You have to wrap the yarn tightly around the wire (and sometimes knot it) to get it to stay. This was tricky for her and definitely required some help–but teamwork got it done!
