Paper And Yarn Heart Tree's

My son and I had a wonderful time making these heart tree's together :)
They're a great craft for kids
and they add a sweet decoration to your home for Valentine's Day.



Items Needed:
12" x 12" card stock or 8.5" x 11"
hot glue gun and glue
yarn
scissors
heart paper punch
decorative trim/lace

Create a cone out of your paper
and hot glue (or tape) the outer edge down.
Trim the bottom so that it's all even.
Apply a dab of hot glue on the top 
and press the end of the yarn onto the glue.
Hold the yarn tight 
and twist down the cone.
If you want, you can periodically apply a dab of hot glue for extra hold.
Rosie Girl was absolutely no help during this project!
Although she was cute to watch :)



Once your cone is covered with yarn, you can apply decorative trim for garland.
Then punch out (or trace) some hearts and apply to your Valentine's tree.

  5. Love the pink pom pom garland. I have a couple of yarn cones that I didn't throw away. I thought that perhaps I would do something tree-ish for Christmas with them. Too many gifts being produced this year so I never got to it. If I can easily find them I think these would look wonderful on our Valentine breakfast table. Well done! :)

    Blessings, Debbie

  24. Oh how cute - it definitely looks like one of those fun and easy crafts for kids and seniors I love to collect. I'm pinning this to try with my granddaughters next time I visit (I suspect my grandsons wouldn't be too enthused - they keep insisting on growing older :) - hmmm, then again, maybe with green and leprechauns for St Patricks Day? :) )

    Have a lovely Rednesday and thanks for the fun idea.
