These crochet hearts look very different made in a combination of strong colours or in a single neutral colour. Both work for Christmas decorations! You can starch the hearts using a sugar and water or white glue and water mix. If you use very fine thread and a small hook you can use the heart for a necklace or earrings.
Ideas for using hearts:
- Christmas tree
- Attached to gift wrapping
- Attach to Christmas cards
- As gift tags
- Table decoration
- Joining many for bunting
- Joining many for tree garland
- Chain in window, use beads in the chain
You can watch a step by step tutorial video or use a crochet chart for making the heart.

Chart for crochet heart:
Please note that there is a small difference in the video instructions compared with the chart and the hearts on this page. You can have either 2 or 3 double trebles (with 3 yarnovers) in the heart. Especially when using thick yarn it is better to have only two.
