There’s something about Valentine’s Day that makes me feel crafty… (anyone else?)
So when I found this tutorial for “Colors of Love Garland” from the blog Fresh and Fun, I knew it was a craft that was on my level. Hah! Yesterday was the perfect day to make it since 1) we were snowed in and 2) I had a crafting partner, Darah (who is very artistic – bonus!).
We pretty much followed the tutorial, but decorated the hearts a little differently.
Step 1- Make hearts out of paper bags using a template. We made two different sizes.
Step 2- Decorate said hearts to your heart’s desire. Instead of painting them, we used other things like stickers, pictures, etc.
Step 3- Sew front and back of each heart together. Leave a little space to stuff it. Sew it closed.
Step 4- String hearts together using a needle and thin string/yarn.
Step 5- Hang up your heart garland somewhere to spread some love!
It has a nice place above my bed.
