diy valentine’s day decorative garland

I recently hosted a Valentine’s Day Party (which you’ll be able to see here). With myriads of options out there for Valentine’s Day decorations, I decided to go with something simple yet festive. With all of the other party planning to do’s on my checklist, simple = one less thing to worry about for the big party. This literally only took me about 20 minutes to make, so it’s a great “go to” if you’re in a time crunch. All you need to make my DIY Valentine’s Day garland is the following:

  • 4 – 8 different Valentine’s print scrapbook paper (go get it at Hobby Lobby where scrapbook paper is 50% once a month!)
  • Baker’s twine, or something similar (yarn or ribbon will do as well)
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch

And, here’s how to make them!

  • First, print out my circle and heart templates (see below), cut them out and trace them multiple times onto your Valentine’s scrapbook paper. My garland has 8 circles with 8 hearts.
  • Next, cut out your circles and hearts.
  • Glue a heart on each of the circles.
  • With your hole punch, punch two holes above the heart approximately 1/2″ apart.
  • Then take your baker’s twine and weave it in an out of the hole punches in each of the circles.
  • Depending on where you want to hang the garland, you can slide each circle into place to make it as long or as short as needed.
  • Voila! An adorable Valentine’s Day garland that is super simple.
