In our house we LOVE LOVE LOVE to finger knit. Finger knitting is a great childhood craft, that can be done any place any time (great for long car journeys too!). Once you get the hang of it, it is really easy to do and there are lot of fun Finger Knitting Projects you can use it for. I also love Finger Knitting, as it helps concentration, pattern recognition and I find it has a calming effect on my kids. Today, we share some simple Finger Knitting Heart Ornaments. They are easy and quick to make and I think they look really cute. Perfect as DIY Christmas Ornaments, but actually a great Easy Heart Craft for all year round or as a Valentine’s Day Decoration. One cute and easy Kids’ DIY, that you can use or make all year round really!!!!
Finger Knitting Heart Ornament – Materials:
- Wool (in desired color, but of course red is always nice) – the thicker the wool/ yarn the better
- A pipe cleaner or piece of wire (I used some red garden wire for our heart ornament)
- A little bell (optional)
- Your FINGERS!
