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.

Supplies:
colorful yarn
masking tape
scissors
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
