Paper Plate Yarn Heart

I just love simple crafts with the kids that are quick to complete and use supplies I have already and this is one of those great little projects.


This is the first time I have attempted something like this with my 4 year old.  She was super excited to do the project after watching the how-to video (see below). The craft was a little too old for her, but with lots of help from mummy we have something that she is really happy with.


I think this project would look great with red yarn too - especially for Valentines day.  Use a card instead and you would have a lovely Valentine's day card.

We were inspired to do this craft thanks to Lincraft's video (below). They are starting to produce some great craft content as they try to connect with their customers online. Their projects are a great mix of projects for adults and children so check out their blog or YouTube channel for some inspiration for your next project.

If you have a more difficult stain you will see a dulling in the intensity of the spray paint. If you can still see the stain, continue on to step 2 or skip straight to step 3 if you can't see th…
