DIY Valentine's Day Heart Garland

Hi everyone!! Today I have for you a super cute tutorial... how to make a heart garland!  Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, (I know, it just seemed like Christmas!) this will be perfect for those of you who like to decorate. (Girls, come on. Who can resist a heart themed Valentine's Day garland perfect for hanging over your bed?) 

 
What you'll need: 
String, scissors, hot glue gun, & lots of paper 


So the first thing you want to do is cut out your paper hearts. I like to cut them into all different sizes. Use lots of different paper! I used scraps of paper left over from scrapbooking, since I like to save and recycle!


Cut a lot of hearts, the more, the merrier!


Get your string, and cut it to the desired length of the garland.  I left mine long, because I have a special purpose for this garland...


Spread a piece of paper on the table, which will serve as your disposable tablecloth.
Take your glue gun and put a drop of hot glue onto the string. Then quickly, before the glue dries, get one of your hearts and push it securely into the glue. The heart might stick to your paper, but you can get it off carefully. Keep repeating this process until you've glued as many hearts as you wish onto your string.



And you are finished! You have a super cute garland that is very versatile in the ways it can be hanged. Perfect for a photoshoot or simply a pretty decoration for your home! If you're like me and love to decorate, then this garland is perfect for you. Enjoy!




xoxo,
