Valentine Yarn & Pipe Cleaner Craft

Valentine Yarn & Pipe Cleaner Craft

This super simple Valentine’s Day craft is the perfect activity to work on while relaxing at home during these winter months. I love having little projects to keep my hands busy, otherwise I just know I’ll end up scanning Twitter or Pinterest and have nothing to show for it at the end of the day. (This would also make for a great activity to keep LITTLE hands busy too!)

Just grab two pipe cleaners and spell out a Valentine-y word like ‘Love,’ ‘sweet,’ or ‘xoxo’ and begin wrapping some colorful yarn, beginning at one end.



And keep wrapping until the whole word is covered. (You can see that I left a little red pipe cleaner showing because I like how the colors look together.) We set this on our mantle for a nice little decoration.


What do you think? Share with me other words you think would look cute! I was also thinking about doing this with someone’s name, or a heart shape, and giving that away as a little Valentine’s Day gift or, as you can see here, setting it in front of a picture of a loved one.

      Thanks, Lisa! It’s a great little activity for little hands to cut those pieces of yarn too!
