Inspired by my confetti garland from last week, today I’m sharing a super easy DIY heart garland for Valentine’s Day. And when I say it’s easy, I mean really really easy. This one would be fun to do with your kiddos – just let them decorate the hearts before you string them.
You can either use a heart-shaped hole punch and punch (or cut out) hearts from whatever color card stock you like. Or, if you want to make it really easy, you can buy these from Paper Source and avoid the punching/cutting altogether.
Insert your string or yarn through the eye of your needle. Give yourself as much slack as length you want in your garland. Then start “threading” your needle through each heart. I alternated red and pink. Once you have the length of garland and spacing of hearts that you want, you’re done! I used about 40 hearts and about 6 feet of string to make mine. You can use less, or spread them out over more string to make it less “full.”
I’ll be using mine for Charlie’s Valentine’s Day party with his playgroup. I’m also using this really cute DIY from Wiley Valentine for Charlie to give to his buddies. It reminds me of decorating a shoe or tissue box and taking it to elementary school to collect all of the valentine’s from my classmates. So fun, right?
