DIY Simple Heart Garland

3 Materials
20 Minutes

Looking for cute, but not tacky Valentine's decor? This Simple Heart Garland is super cute, easy to make and we don't think it's tacky at all!

Cut heart shapes out of felt sheets. I like to fold the sheet in half and cut heart out, as shown in the photo. You can make them any size you like and use any colour felt sheet. We used white, pink and red and the Coffee Bar garland and pink, purple and red for the outdoor tree garland.

Run a bead of glue lengthwise along the back of the heart. Carefully place twine or jute over top and gently press down. It helps to get your fingers wet when you press down because the glue is hot.

Repeat until you have used all your hearts. I spaced mine about one hand width apart.

Make sure to alternate colours if you are wanting a specific pattern.

Hang garland on a mantle or wall or wrap around sticks for a fun outdoor porch idea.

I placed rocks in a planter around some trimmed tree branches and it made such a cute addition at zero cost to use (we had everything at home already).
