Hearts String | Valentine Garland
With some sadness, I removed my Christmas garland and cards from the kitchen window suddenly leaving it rather naked. It was then that I decided we needed a Valentine’s garland to cushion my post-Christmas-decor-removal-blues. A few hours of felt cutting, hand stitching and mini pompom-making later my window was smiling again.
A cute, dead-easy little craft you can do with your kids if you wanted to.
I drew a heart stencil around 5 inches in width and cut out a bunch of them in various shades of pink and red.
I decided to stitch two felt hearts on top of each other versus leaving it a single felt heart to give the garland a bit more substance.
Then I made a bunch of tiny pompoms from red acrylic yarn. Here is a fun tutorial on Youtube on how to make these. So easy…all you need is yarn, scissors and wait for it….a fork!
I attached the hearts and pompoms to a string I crocheted from a thick natural cotton.
Let love rule!
