Here’s one more easy Valentine for you – definitely something different for the 14th… Tin foil is shaped into a heart, wrapped in yarn and given a tattered message of love. Grab a sheet of aluminum foil and shape into a heart; the bigger the sheet, the bigger the heart.

Using a glue gun, tack down the end of a piece of yarn and start wrapping to cover the entire heart. I used dabs of glue here and there to help secure the yarn.

Secure the end of the yarn with glue.

Embroider your message onto a piece of fabric, cut it out and pull the threads to fray the edges. If embroidery isn’t your thing you could always stamp out your message with rubber stamps or write it on paper. Attach embroidered message to yarn heart with a hot glue gun.

You could also string these for hanging – but I love the way they look lying flat. They have something about them that makes my kids want to pick them up and hold them, so I leave them out on the table in our living room.
