I am really in love with anything yarn-wrapped lately. A fast and easy way to use up leftover yarn. . . what’s not to love?!
Hearts are the latest thing I’ve subjected to the yarn wrap. You could make them any size, but I made some smallish ones to use as bowl and vase fillers.
Start by drawing hearts onto cardboard. I traced around a cookie cutter onto a box leftover from Christmas morning.
Cut them out. Don’t worry if they’re not perfect! The yarn will cover up any uneven edges or stray pen marks. Begin wrapping around the heart. You can secure the first strand of yarn with a piece of tape or just hold it for a few wraps, until it’s covered.
Switch directions while continuing to wrap the heart. Make sure as you wrap that you are covering the heart evenly and hiding the cardboard, so it doesn’t peek through at all.
Once you’ve completely covered the heart, tuck the end under a few strands of yarn and add a dab of hot glue.
Use as filler in bowls, vases, centerpieces.
