Here's a super quick and easy Valentine's Day decor craft, a great one for the kids.
I bought these pre-cut paper hearts in the dollar bin at Target. With that, some baker's twine, and a sewing machine, you've got everything needed to make these little hanging hearts.
Simply sandwich the baker's twine between two of the hearts and zigzag stitch over the baker's twine to keep it in place. This way the hearts will hang straight, although tilted would be cute too.
Because I wanted my hearts to hang in a straight line down, I was sure to catch the twine in the zigzag all the way down to the point of the heart, then without cutting the twine, sew the next heart on a few inches down.
Of course, you can also cut your own hearts out of anything. I used some of the hearts as templates with paper I had already.
Be sure to leave extra twine at the top of your strand so you can wrap it around something to hang.
Catching your line horizontally vs. vertically will give you a different kind of garland:
Less than 15 minutes and $5.00, totally worth it:
