It’s hard to believe that it is already the end of January! Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it so today’s craft is a fun paper heart garland. (Catch another Valentine project here…)For your heart garland, you will need 3 sheets of construction paper in shades of red and/or pink.
Cut the following…
2 x 9″ long
2 x 8″ long
2 x 7″ long
and 2 x 6″ long
Trim each set to be slightly narrower than the set before.Add a piece of string between the ends of the longest strips.This will give you something to hang it by when you are done.
Fold the papers down and away from where they are glued. Add some glue to the inside of the strips and you will have formed a heart.Continue adding to your heart garland using the smaller and smaller set of strips each time.
Grab some pink and red construction paper and make an easy heart garland to add a pop of colour to your Valentine decor.
Finish off your heart garland by glueing the ends of the last heart.I used little alphabet stamps to add words to some of my hearts as well… just to add a little something.You can keep adding to your heart garland to make it as long as you’d like.I made my garland only four hearts long and hung it on a piece of reclaimed wood painted white. The pink and red really pop against the white and it turns simple paper into a piece of art.
