Handcrafted Rustic Wire Heart Garland
Looking for a quick and easy way of decorating your mantel for Valentine's? How about transforming rustic wire into something really sweet - an adorable handcrafted heart garland! And you can make it so no two hearts are shaped alike! In fact, have fun shaping the hearts into whimsical designs and then add a bit of glitz by connecting them with pretty small red rhinestone hearts!
Start with a roll of rustic wire. Since the wire is already curved, simply lift up the wire from the roll, and cut off about 12 inches. Then bend the wire in half, pinching into a point.
Next, easily shape the ends to form a heart, adding a dab of hot glue to secure. So easy, peasy!
Continue making as many hearts as desired, connecting sides with dabs of glue.
Then place a dab of glue on the back of the rhinestone hearts and place between the wire hearts where connected.
Have fun displaying your garland on the mantel, door, wall, or anywhere your heart desires!
