Valentine's Day Crochet Heart Necklace

 
This is a repost from last year.
I love this little valentine's day necklace! 
 

This is a fun little craft I did with my 6 year old son. We made necklaces to use as gifts for Valentine's Day. I thought they were so cute, I had to post about how we created them!

Here are the items you will need for the project. I used some silk chiffon ribbon, but you may use bulky weight yarn or some other kind of ribbon. I will include the pattern for the crochet heart. 


STEP 1:
To get started, you will need to make the crochet heart. If you do not crochet, you could use a felt heart, heart button, or another "heart" object. Joann's has lots of heart items that would work for this project. 

Pattern for crochet heart. (H hook, worsted weight yarn). *Light pink heart is 100% cotton yarn, hot pink heart is wool yarn.* I prefer cotton for this project. 

Start with a magic circle. Ch 3. Work the following into the circle - 4 tc, 2 dc, 1 tc. Now ch 1 and work the remaining into the circle - 2 dc, 4 tc. Chain 3 and slip stitch into your circle. Pull tight to close your circle and end off. 


STEP 2:
Next, you will need to attach the bell to your crochet heart. This step is optional (my son saw jingle bells and insisted that we add one! :-).




STEP 3:
Next, thread the craft beads on to the ribbon using the yarn needle. This is a great exercise for kids! My son used 2 red, 1 white, 2 red, 1 white, 2 red, 1 white, 2 red. (6 red and 3 white).


STEP 4:
Thread ribbon through your crochet heart. Mommy probably needs to do this step. 

STEP 5:
Now, finish up the other side by threading the remainder of the beads. Tie a bow using opposite ends of the ribbon and there you have it....a very cute heart necklace!

I love it!! Thanks for checking out my craft!
