framed foam yarn art

Your kids can add some texture to their room with this multi-media craft.
Step 1
-Use the backing from the wood frame as a template, trace it onto foam sheet and cut out.
 
-Click here to print the template. 
 
-Using a pencil, lightly trace the template of the heart, home or “love” to the center of the foam sheet.
Step 2
ADULT ONLY:
Using a hole punch, follow the traced lines and punch out holes, leaving about ½" between.
 
Step 3
-Cut two 30" pieces of a medium weight yarn.
Tip: Yarn can be different colors or weights to personalize.
 
-Tie a knot at one end of the yarn and wrap a piece of tape around the other end (this will allow for easier weaving when pulling yarn through the holes).

-Pull yarn up from bottom of the foam through any hole. Pull the yarn down through a hole on the opposite side.
 
-Continue to thread yarn crossing the pattern in different directions until all holes have been threaded. Tie a knot on the back side to keep yarn from pulling through and trim any extra yarn.
Step 4
Using a different color of yarn, repeat the first part of Step 3
 
-Pull yarn from bottom up through one of the holes. Move to the hole to the right and pull yarn down.

-Pull yarn from bottom up through the hole to the right and back down through the next hole to the right. Continue to repeat until the heart outline is completely weaved.

-Tie a knot on the back side and trim any extra yarn.
