Yarny Hearts Garland, Yarn Craft + Video


The Yarny Hearts Garland is a lovely yarn craft that is so fast and easy to whip up for Valentine's Day.  It is a great way to use up some yarn odds and ends, and is a wonderful project to do with kids!

Simple cardboard hearts are wrapped in yarn and the result is a string of beautiful hearts that look like Valentine yarn balls!  The perfect decor item for any yarn lover, am I right?!?

Click below to watch a full video tutorial on how to make this project:


Here's What You'll Need:
  • Hot glue gun + glue sticks
  • Pen/marker
  • Tapestry/yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Heart stencil (I used a cookie cutter but you can print something or use something you may have on hand)
  • Cardboard scraps (I used a box flap from the recycling bin)
  • Tape
  • Ribbon/yarn/twine
  • Yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Cherry Red" "Grenadine" "Perfect Pink" and "White"


Here's how to make the garland:

  • Begin by tracing several hearts onto cardboard and cut them out.
  • Tape a yarn end to the back of the heart.
  • Wrap yarn around heart, changing directions as needed until cardboard is completely covered.
  • Cut the yarn, flip it over to the back and add a dot of how glue and glue yarn end down.
  • Let heart cool and dry completely.
  • Make as many hearts as needed (I made 8 of them, 2 in each color).
  • Arrange hearts in the order you want them to be displayed on your garland.
  • Thread your ribbon with a large tapestry needle.
  • Run the tapestry needle along the backs of the hearts, all along the top of each one to string them up.
  • Slide them in place as needed.  You can spread them out or make the sides of them touch, it's totally up to you how you want your garland to look.  Cut the ribbon to desired length and you're ready to hang!
