Can you believe that there are only 9 days left to January? I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t properly stored away some of the Christmas items, but have an end of the month deadline to do so. It is hard, however, not to think ahead to February.
There is an abundance of Valentine craft paper leftover from all the years of making craft projects with the children. In an effort to use some of it up, I made this very simple Valentine garland.
The heart-shaped cut out is from Michaels, but you could easily make a heart pattern, trace it and cut it out. Would also be fun to do different sizes.
Line up the hearts in the patterns you like. I used Baker’s twine because of the red/white color, but any string will do.
Glue one heart to the twine and then press the other heart on top. I placed the string to the upper part of the heart, which allows the hearts to hang without flipping.
Decide the distance between hearts and repeat the process.
Let the hearts dry and flatten out any glue bumps.
Hang wherever you need some Valentine cheer!
A quick and easy DIY to make your February sweeter!
