Valentine’s Day Treat Craft DIY Yarn Heart

My boys loved helping make sweet Valentine’s Day cards for their friends when they were younger. It was such a fun and special way to learn about their friends and classmates. But, we were often on a pretty tight budget with four young boys and one income. So, we had to get creative some years. And, this DIY Yarn Heart Valentine’s Day Treat craft is super affordable and totally adorable!
