Well, hello! How have you been? So nice of you to visit me!
I am now fully in the Valentine's Day mood, are you? I have been working on a small V-Day vignette and came up with this simple yarn art to add to it.
It was very easy and the only thing I had to buy was yarn! Not too bad for only $3.00.
Here's what you will need:
Piece of white card stock
Yarn of your choice
Large eye needle (Yarn darner)
Draw a heart on your 8X10 card stock. I also added the word love to mine, but that is totally up to you. Spray the paper with the glue and lay your cheesecloth over top. This is just to hold it in place to make it a bit easier to work with. Make sure to pierce the paper with holes as close together as you can, all the way around the heart.
Thread your needle with the yarn and, starting at the point of the heart, just go around from side to side. I didn't want mine to be perfect.. more organic. If it was off a little bit, no biggie. Because the yarn was so tight in the paper, I really didn't even need to knot it at the end.
Once I was done adding my yarn, I placed in a white frame. I just adore how the cheesecloth adds that little bit extra! I love a great texture combo. It really was a simple project that only took about 30 mins.
Do you have anything special you are making this Valentine's Day? I would love to hear from you!
