Yesterday I made part 1 of my advent calendar and today comes the second part. This bit is actually not only suitable for a calendar I think it would look pretty awesome as some decoration for a wedding.

Heart Pegs

You’ll need

  • cotton yarn in red (I used 100% cotton yarn by Patons in DK)
  • 4 mm hook
  • wooden cloth pegs (make sure that they’re not coated usually those are the cheapest wooden ones you can get)
  • wood stain (make sure that it’s suitable for interior use, you don’t need much of it though)
  • super glue

Make your 25 hearts. There are so many free heart pattern available out there in the whole blogworld that I didn’t have to come up with my own. I used the mini heart form of planet junes heart pattern.

Stain your wooden pegs. I gave mine two coats but thats up to you on how dark you want them to be. Let them dry over night.
