Valentine Garland Tutorial
That's right, a tutorial! These were super simple to make (no sewing)and my 4 year old loved helping.
Razor blade knife thingy
That's all you need!
Cut out as many hearts as you want in your garland. If you want 6 hearts(like mine), then cut out 12 total hearts.
Follow instructions on your iron on adhesive. 2 hearts will end up being glued together front to back. The brand I used does not recommend sewing which was fine by me. One less thing to do. And this brand is perfect for this project. I would not recommend it for a project that needs to be washed because it does not hold up in a wash.
Using your razor blade, cut slits at the top of your hearts where you want the ribbon to thread through.
Measure your ribbon to the length you want it once it is hanging.
Thread your ribbon through your hearts and you're done!I tied little loops at the end of my ribbon so I could just hook it onto the tacks that are still in my wall from Christmas decorations.
