These little hearts are absolutely adorable whether they are strung together in a garland or individual ornaments! You could make them in any color you could possibly imagine and they would work for so much more than just Valentine’s Day decorations!
I have to say—love is in the air! And what a better way to show it than with your very own crocheted heart shaped Valentine’s Day Wreath.
Originally I had made a round wreath. It was nice, but it wasn’t really screaming Valentine’s Day to me. (This was back in February.) I actually stumbled upon a heart shaped wreath form when I was out shopping one day and stuffed it in my cart immediately with zero hesitation! It was perfect! There would be absolutely no mistaking which holiday this wreath was dedicated to.
There are quite a few archways in my house and for some reason I feel like they need some sprucing up. They just look so naked. What better (and more flexible) way to highlight these architectural designs then by lining the arches with crocheted garlands!
Even my husband likes them, so they must not be too girly.
If you could see our house, it is decorated with country/rustic items: deer, black bears, grubby candles and oil lanterns. When I was growing up I never thought that was how my house would be decorated, but the truth is that I love it! I’ve always been fond of nature, the outdoors and animals. As a child, I played in the woods behind our house, building forts and swimming in a creek that I later found out had poisonous snakes in it! Yikes!
This past February I went a little nuts designing and creating crocheted decorations for Valentine’s Day. I was trying to build up enough inventory for when I opened my Etsy shop and launched my blog. I had the idea to make the word “Love” into a vertical hanging sign. And how cute to make the “O” a heart instead! So I sat down with my graph paper and graphed out a heart design. With my favorite crochet hook (yes, I have a favorite), I grabbed some Red Heart Yarn that I had left over from another project and got to work. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, but I kept going anyway. The final result ended up being a really cute wall hanging decoration!
I’m on a hanging tags kick. It started with my Hope Hanging Tags and is spreading to the holidays. Hint: there may be more to come. 🙂
