I’ve recently discovered crochet. I say recently, I’ve actually made various attempts over the years but finally gave it a proper good go and completed an octopus last week! I have since bought lots of wool and intend to make a whole menagerie of cute crocheted animals. I’m loving looking through all the potential patterns over at Craftsy too!
With crochet firmly on the brain recently I loved these next hearts that I came across on Etsy and know they would look so adorable incorporated into your wedding…
I love the idea of crocheted hearts in bowls or just strewn across the table. You could even buy lots and have them surround you on the floor whilst you say your vows (I’m thinking non-church wedding here by the way); they’d look so cute on the photos! The hearts on sticks make a fab alternative to flowers as a centrepiece too…

And to complement those hearts how about making crocheted heart garlands. You don’t have to do the crocheting bit just buy ready-crocheted ones, thread yarn through them and string them around your venue. Lovely!

Of course if you’re handy with a crochet hook you can make these yourself. Here are a few tutorials that may take your fancy:
I attempted the itty bitty tutorial but as someone very new to the world of crochet, who’s just learnt how to sufficiently hold the wool to crochet, that magic ring is just way too complicated!
