I am so excited to be sharing my baking twine hearts as part of the 14 Days of Valentines, being hosted by A Princess and Her Cowboys. Make sure, after you've read my post, to go check out all of the cute Valentine's Day ideas over there.
Make Your Own Twine HeartsLike I said, these twine hearts are really simple. In fact, they only take four things to make and if you have twine on hand, I know you have the other three.
- Baking twine
- Paper (I used old catalogs)
Step 1 - Crumple up pieces of paper and tape together to form balls. You will need three paper balls for each heart.
Step 3 - Tape the end of the twine to the paper heart then just start winding the twine around the heart. I don't have any tips for this portion other than holding the twine tight onto the ball as you go or else it will slip off. There is no right or wrong way to wind the twine, I think the imperfection of the whole thing is what makes it so cute.
Step 4 - Once the entire heart is covered, cut the twine and either tape or glue the end of the twine to the heart. After Valentine's Day you can unwind the heart and use the baking twine for another fun craft. Or save them for next year's decorations.
