I have a fun little Valentine project to share with you.
a very inexpensive simple DIY tutorial to make your Valentine’s day a little prettier!
DIY felt heart garland
glue gun/glue sticks
for my red felt I used a Christmas tree skirt i got on clearness for $0.50..SCORE
I started out by cutting my felt into varying widths of strips
then I cut the strips into squares
now time to let your creative juices flow
i liked to cut my hearts so that they were not all the same size or shape
there is something about a short fat heart that makes me smile
continue cutting hearts until you have your desired amount
make sure your glue gun is plugged in and nice and hot
grab some coffee while you are waiting, add some homemade creamer
now we can keep moving along..
i laid out the pattern before i began gluing the string to the hearts
i only used a tiny dot of glue on the back of the heart and then placed the string down
be careful not to burn your finger tips
keep adding hearts until you reach the desired length of string for your project
i hung my hearts in our front window
here i used a longer strand draped over an old window on our wall
the decoration is the perfect amount of Valentine fun for our little house!
I can not wait to see the ones you create.
