While out shopping in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia recently, I saw a lovely window display of yarn and wire hearts in the window of Green Street Consignment Shop. I thought those hearts would look pretty in my windows too so I set out to make my own. With yarn from Hardy Supply Co , pipe cleaners, and a wire clothing hanger, I did just that. Directions and photographs are below.

colorful yarn
masking tape
wire clothing hanger (big heart)
pipe cleaner (small heart)
needle nose pliers (or something to maneuver the rigid wire hanger)

Step 1: Disassemble the Wire Hanger

Start by prying apart the wire hanger. Do not use your bare hands as you will probably cut yourself. Use needle nose pliers for a good grip as well as some gloves to protect your skin.
its cute!!!
Aw, it looks like a cute, Valentine's day spiderweb! <br> <br>How about sticking a pink spider and a white spider together on there? Aw!
This is a really sweet idea, I haven't ever been able to think of what to do for Valentines day with yarn. Good luck in the contest.<br>Kerri
