Countdown to Valentine's Day! 9...


This really is a ton of fun, coming up with a new idea to highlight as every day we get closer to this lovely holiday!

Today's source of inspiration is a darling little project from Smitten on Paper via  Green Wedding Shoes, and is so downright simple and sweet, you are just going to swoon with glee!!  Take a look . . .


DIY HEART GARLAND


Supplies You Will Need:

~ Baker’s Twine
~ Stripes of paper in various sizes and colors
~ Hole Punch
~ Double Sided Tape

Directions:


Step 1: Grab a strip of paper and fold it in half. A variety of different size stripes of paper and colors will add some charm to your heart garland, trust us-it’ll be so cute when the hearts are in different weights of chubbiness!

Step 2: While your paper is still folded in half, add double sided tape to the outside of one end.

Step 3: Curl the two ends in until they meet in the middle and form the shape of a heart, then press down so it is secured by the tape.

Step 4: Add 3 hole punches. Add one in the center and one on the left and right side of the heart. Hole punch toward the top so the hearts don’t topple over when strung through with twine.

Once all your hearts are hole punched, just string through some baker’s twine and you’re done!



Twenty minutes later and you have the sweetest little banner, perfect for stringing along the mantel, along the TV stand, or wherever makes your heart content:) Photobucket
