An easy Valentine’s Day heart wood pallet craft is the perfect antidote to putting away the Christmas decorations. This is a great kids craft, too.
 Miss the Christmas decorations? Make this easy heart wood pallet craft! Yarn, cardboard and a wood pallet are all you need to make this easy craft. It's great to make with kids, too!
 One of the saddest days of the year is the day we take down the Christmas decorations. I wait until the last possible second to put them away. I miss the lights the most but also all the other festive decorations.  Putting up a few Valentine’s Day decorations helps to ease the transition back in to normalcy.  I love our Origami Heart Garland with all it’s colors!  These ombre yarn hearts on a pallet are another fun way to infuse a little love in to your decor. They are easy enough to make so the kids can help, too.
 Yarn Heart Craft
Pallet Board (5.5″ x 14″ shown)
Brown Acrylic Paint (if desired) Burnt Sienna Color
Paint Brush
Hot Glue

Wood Pallet Craft

Prepare your pallet board by watering down brown paint and covering pallet board. Set aside to dry.  You could also leave the pallet board natural.

Yarn Wrapped Heart

Cut out a heart shape out of plain paper with scissors. You might need to try several times to get just the right heart. You want a “deep” V in the center of your heart. You’ll fill it with yarn, so the deeper the better, otherwise, you’ll start to lose your heart shape. You can use our heart template as a guide. Place your paper heart pattern onto cardboard. Trace with a pencil and cut the heart shape out with scissors. Repeat so you have three hearts.

Heart Yarn

Use the yarn to wrap your cardboard heart. There’s no right or wrong way. Wrap in the same direction about three our four times until the cardboard is covered and then randomize the yarn wrappings. Repeat until you have one white, one pink and one red heart, or any colors of your choice.

Yarn Wrapped Heart Pallet

Place the three hearts onto the pallet board in the position you’d like (horizontal, vertical, straight or angled) and affix with hot glue.

Yarn Wrapped Heart Craft

And that’s it! The heart pallet board is ready to display with love!
Origami Heart Bouquet and Garland
This would great on a mantle with an origami heart garland or bouquet!

    Hi Camille, those hearts are super cool and I really love how they are easy to make and how they also blend well with the pallet. I think I and my younger sister who is just crazy about crafts should do something like this over the weekend. Thanks a lot for the share.

    Hi Camille, we loved these hearts at Throwback Thursday and featured them this week! I wish I were closer to my grandbabies because they’d be a perfect craft to share with them! They’re cute, fun and classy and you make the look very doable!

    These are really cute, I love the idea to display them as art.

  • Super cute Valentine’s wall art! I pinned it to my wedding board to share and because my daughter, who is an avid knitter and crocheter, is getting married this summer and something like this would be perfect for her guest table. Thanks for the inspiration!
