In my house, just about any time of year is a time for celebrating love and getting creative with hearts! I like to think that I’ve taught my kids that these are year-round concepts rather than just things you celebrate on Valentine’s Day. I’m also the kind of parent who always keeps an eye out for very simple ideas and likes to come up with really easy concepts that I think my kids could make themselves. All of those factors combined are how I found myself sitting down with my kids last week to show them how to make cute, bright red hanging heart decor from coloured string and pipe cleaner!
Do you love string and yarn wrapping techniques just as much as we do, if not more? Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.
For this project, you’ll need:
- Red pipe cleaner
- Red and white string
- Red yarn
