It's good to plan ahead if you are going to make decorations and such, right? So you aren't making decorations and gift goodies at the very.last.minute. :) I promise it will not be Valentine-y around here for the next 2.5 weeks :)
Like this garland I made for Christmas, this Valentine garland is fun and simple to make. All you need are hearts and circles punched (or handcut!) from Valentine-y papers (I used light pink, dark pink, red, white, kraft, and vintage dictionary pages (To get the multiple hearts punched on the circle punches, I used this punch first and then punched the 1.5" circle).I then fed them through my sewing machine in no particular order. I stacked three paper rounds on top of each other every now and then to create a 3-D effect (like in the Holiday Garland).
The garland is about 10' long and took about 20 minutes start to finish, including punching all of the shapes. A cute and quick Valentine's Day decoration :)
Want a Valentine's Day garland but would rather purchase one? Go here to see one like this in my shop :)
