A simple heart to sit proudly on top of the Christmas tree. I'm more of a star gal myself, but I just know there's someone out there wanting to top their Christmas tree with a simple yet undeniably cute heart.

Each heart is made made entirely by me. I dye the string at my kitchen sink, French knit the string at a little mill set up in my living room, and it's threaded with wire and sculpted by hand into a heart at my old oak dining table. There is most certainly a little bit of love in each of these hearts.

Need to know

These Simple Heart Tree Toppers are available in three colours: Red, Pink and Natural (undyed cotton). Natural cotton string is intended for practical uses so slight inconsistencies in colour, flecks and blemishes are all part of the charm.

Loose or unintentionally wonky tree toppers have always been a bit of a bugbear of mine, so I make the coils for my tree toppers in two sizes. The Standard Coil is 1cm in diameter and will fit securely to most real Christmas trees and narrower artificial trees. The Wide Coil is 2cm in diameter and is a good choice for fuller trees, especially larger artificial trees. To fix the heart to your tree, just twist the wire coil around the leader branch.

Each heart measures 15cm x 14cm x 1cm. The total length of the tree topper including the coil is 24cm. Please do bear in mind these items are hand made so all measurements I give are approximate.

I use Everlasto strings and twines from the James Lever Factory in Bolton, UK, where they've been manufacturing twine, cord and rope for over 150 years.

All my string "things" are plastic free. I keep marketing materials to a minimum and all packaging I use can be re-used, composted and/or widely recycled.

This Thing Is String


This Thing is String is an eclectic collection of homewares, oddities and décor, all made from humble household string. Hand knitted, hand dyed, hand sculpted – it’s just me, at my old oak dining table, crafting up solutions to life’s minor plasticky problems.

All my things are plastic free, made in small batches (often to order) and packaged using compostable, recycled or widely recyclable materials.
