This homemade DIY Valentine’s Day garland is SUPER simple to make and pretty cheap, depending on what you’ve got lying around your craft bin/room. This project cost me a whopping $0.58 + tax!!! I had every item on-hand except the red felt for the hearts. CanIgettawhoopwhoop???
What you need:
– yarn, in your choice of color(s)
– baker’s twine
– craft glue
What you do:
Make 4-6 yarn pom-poms (or as many as you want for the length of garland you’ll have).
Cut 12-16 hearts out of felt, in any size you want. I wanted my hearts to be slightly larger than the pom-poms, and I decided to use 2 felt hearts to create a front and back, glueing just the top and bottom edges so I could thread the baker’s twine through the center.
Measure out your baker’s twine, leaving extra for the swag (if you want swag, that is).
Then, thread on the felt hearts, tie on the pom-poms, hang, swag and ta-da! You’ve got garland!
