Valentine's Day's always been pretty low-key day around here. Despite my best intentions, I've never managed to get the house decorated for the holiday and it's one of those holidays that's totally devoid of tradition for me. But this year, I finally got my act together and knit up some little heart decorations with some scrap yarn.
I had enough leftover red Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride wool leftover from other projects to make four little hearts. I felted them up, pulled a ribbon through them and now they hang merrily in a row in the living room window. They make me smile every time I catch them bobbing away out of the corner of my eye.
This is a great way to use up some scrap yarn and the hearts knit up very quickly, so you can have a stack of fuzzy hearts to scatter around your home in no time.
Ideas for your felted hearts:
- Embroider the initials of a bride and groom-to-be on the heart and use as a gift tag for a wedding gift.
- Knit up in multi-colors and use for Christmas tree decorations
- Hang in your windows (like I did) for happy little Valentine's Day decorations
Happy Valentine's Day!
