As I was decorating for Valentine’s day I kept thinking my display was looking a little flat. It need more oomph….more pizzaz. It needed something on the wall, so I whipped up this simple heart garland!
To make your own Valentine’s day garland you will need:
Foam hearts (I bought this package of hearts from a craft store. If you can’t find something similar you can buy sheets of foam and cut out hearts.)
Hot glue gun
My red doily hearts are slightly smaller than the white hearts. To create a nice layered look I hot glued the red hearts on top of the white hearts.
Then I punched two holes in the top outer edges of the hearts.
To connect the hearts; I tied them together with ribbon.
There, now doesn’t that look nice?
I even made little letters for my mailbox by cutting out rectangles from the extra foam hearts and drawing on them with a black sharpie.
Oh, and those wooden conversation hearts bring back fun memories of elementary school Valentine’s Day parties!
