String of Hearts!

Make some easy Valentine’s Day decorations for your party this year with this simple garland. All you will need is a stack of paper hearts that you can create with a heart punch, cut with scissors or on your cutting machine. Once trimmed, arrange in sets of varying colors and sew with a wide stitch using your sewing machine. So easy to do and you can follow my steps below in the tutorial.

Tips & Tricks

Use glitter card stock to add a little shimmer to your paper heart garland. We also used white, bright red and hot pink card. Using a cutting machine to make this garland is definitely the easiest and quickest, but you can purchase heart shapes punches in stores if you don’t have a cutting machine. Stack the paper hearts in sets of two contrasting colors and push them through your sewing machine to stitch together. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can glue these hearts to a string or bakers twine to achieve the same result – sandwich the twine in between the paper hearts!
