Yarn wrapped heart

We recently made this pretty yarn wrapped heart and LOVE letters as a valentines gift. The inspiration for this project came from Barbara Rucci's book Cardboard Creations, her blog Art Bar is full of amazing fun activities you can do with your little ones.

If you love this project but don't have the materials, check out our fun kids CRAFTS KITS, our SIMPLE WEAVING CRAFT KIT includes all the materials you need to make these YARN WRAPPED SHAPES plus lots of other fun crafts.


  • Cardboard
  • Paint, pens or paint markers to decorate
  • Lots of yarn or cord
  • Sticky tape


Cut out your letters or shapes, decorate them with paint or coloured markers. To begin wrapping the yarn or cord, secure the end at the back with sticky tape and wrap around your shapes.
