Winter is about half way over and it is almost time to celebrate the 2nd to last winter holiday; Valentine’s Day (St. Patrick’s Day squeaks in with 3 days left)! Today, I would like to share a simple and quick Valentine’s Day garland I made last year. It is a great last minute decorations when you are in a pinch! Most likely you already have everything you need!
Valentine’s Day Heart Garland
Pipe Cleaners/Chenille Sticks
Large-eyed Needle (one for yarn preferably)
Step One: Determine how long the garland needs to be. Measure and cut your yarn. Be sure to include extra length for draping and in order to hang your garland.
Step Two: Determine how large you want the hearts to be and begin to cut them out of the felt and construction paper. Note: I think the garland looks best with various style hearts. No need to make them all the same unless that is what you desire!
Step Three: Bend the pipe cleaners (aka Chenille Sticks) into heart shapes.
Step Four: Punch tiny starter holes using the scissors into the felt and paper hearts equal distance from the center of the heart. (See picture below.)
Step Five: Thread the needle with the yarn and begin to thread on your hearts. To attach the pipe cleaner hearts just wrap through and around the top a couple of times. (See top right of photo.)
Step Six: Once all your hearts are on spread them evenly across the yarn, hang up and enjoy!
See, told you it was simple and quick! Hope you have enjoyed this festive home decoration! If you are looking for more Valentine’s Day inspiration check out my Wreaths for all Seasons post!
