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
- Hole punch
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!
