February Unwrapped: Yarn Wrapped Mini Wreath

For the month of February, Craftistas put together a mini wreath kit that can be used from now until, well, whenever! It’s perfect for Valentine decor, or for just a little addition to the house. And who doesn’t love burlap?! Here’s our tutorial for making this month’s craft: yarn wrapped mini wreath.

1. Begin by tying the yarn to the base of the wreath and start to wrap the yarn around the wreath until it is completely covered.

4. Cut a heart from each square. Each heart will be a different size so that they can be layered.
