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!

  4. Another real bit of leeway of jewelery is it's smallness. That makes it a lot less expensive to transport than for all intents and purposes whatever else. gold and silver exchange dallas

  10. If you are wondering whether an elongated or rectangular rectangular shaped cushion cut diamonds is the better choice for you, keep in mind that any ideal diamond is one that most appeals to your eyes. When buying your diamond, compare different cushion-cut diamonds and pick the one that you like the most.

  11. Precisely, just like the emerald cut, the square emerald cut diamond also has some trimmed corners, and it tends to have an ideal width to length ratio of 1 to 1. Thus, when a person goes out there and decides to choose the square emerald cut diamond, experts state that to get the best out of everything, then the best decision or rather selection to make is that of a diamond with high color and clarity grading.

  13. Princess cuts are a good use of rough crystal. You don't lose as much diamond when you cut this shape. So that's good. They also tend to be a little less expensive than round diamonds of the same carat weight (although they will look a bit smaller than a round diamond of the same carat weight).
