Now is the time for all kinds of heart crafts in celebration of Valentine’s Day. As someone who used to not be so fond of the holiday, I now have a completely different outlook after seeing how much my kids have fun with it. And these Cardboard Lacing Hearts are a great craft to get us started!
This piece of cardboard was part of the packaging of our 2017 calendar and I knew we had to do something with it. Any large flat piece of corrugated cardboard will do.
Just draw large heart shapes on the back, non-corrugated side, cut out, poke holes around the edge with a hole punch and begin threading red yarn. Pink yarn would be nice, too. We did some of our Cardboard Lacing Hearts by lacing around the edges and some by lacing inside. We also used wavy pinking shears for the hearts that we laced around the edges so the yarn would have a better grip. They both turned out so cute!
- large piece of cardboard
- red yarn
- 1/4“ hole punch
- wavy pinking shears
First, begin by drawing a large heart on the back of the sheet of cardboard. Cut out with either scissors or wavy shears.
Poke holes around the edges with the hole punch.
Tie the end of a long string of yarn on the back of the heart, then begin threading from hole to hole. Tie the other end off tightly on back once your heart is complete.
