Thank you for joining me for the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! I’ve joined with 13 other talented bloggers to share Valentine’s Day crafts on a budget. Each blogger was given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged to create a Valentine’s Day craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of their local stores. If you have budget Valentine’s Day crafts to share, please add it to the link-up at the bottom of this post so it can be seen on all of our blogs!
DIY VALENTINE YARN WREATH
Styrofoam heart wreath frame, 11.8 inches (29 cm)
Worsted weight yarn or craft yarn: red, 4 ounces, 202 yards (184 m), 1 skein
Crochet hook, size G, 4.0mm
Stitch markers or dress pins (optional)
Valentine ribbon, 7/8 inch (2.22 cm), about 3 yards
Single crochet (sc)
Yarn over (yo)
Single crochet: Insert crochet hook into st, yo, draw up a loop, yo, draw yarn thru both loops on hook.
With crochet hook, ch 21.
ROW 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across; turn.
ROW 2: Ch 1, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across.
Repeat row 2 until fabric measures 28 inches. Fasten off, leaving an extra long tail for sewing – about 50 inches.
Starting at the lower right of the wreath frame, wrap fabric around wreath frame and pin in place. Line up rows as close as possible. Sew the sides together working counterclockwise. Sew the left and rights sides together at the bottom and in the v-shape of the wreath frame. Fasten off. Weave in loose ends. Turn over so that seam faces the wall. Hold ribbon in place by gluing the end pieces together at the top of the wreath.
