So this post is a year in the making. I actually made this cute Valentine Heart String Art last year with a group of girls at my church. They were 8 and 9 years old and did a great job, so you can definitely do this project with your kids! It's really easy and super cute!
Here's what you need:
I found a heart outline online that was nice and large and used that to trace a big heart on the wood block. Then I hammered in some nails every few inches. These will be the anchors for your yarn so make sure they're close enough that you can see the heart shape.
Then tie the end of your yarn to one of your nails and wrap the yarn around any nail you choose and keep looping your yarn around the nails to make a crazy design. You can use one color yarn or stop and add a new color of yarn. I used red and pink to add some more dimension.
When you're finished, tie off the yarn and you're done! So simple and so cute! Here's one that one of the girls made. You can be as creative as you like!
And here's mine!
