Just popping in for a quick show-and-tell today. Remember that big wall decoration I made for my Tiny Prints holiday party? My daughter is convinced that we need to change up the paper colors for every season. She’s all ready got it planned out through the 4th of July. I don’t usually decorate for Valentine’s Day, but this was easy; and the rod was all ready hung up top, so it really spoke to my lazy side.
I was planning on making this one for us, when I volunteered to do more for my parents’ store window display. I love this project because it comes together super quick. I used my Cricut to cut out 1500+ hearts. The hearts range in size from 2″ up to 4″. Most of them went to the window display; I can’t wait to see how it comes together! I used text-weight paper so they’re light and fluttery; and then I ran them through my sewing machine in strings of 25-30 hearts. While you’re sewing them, leave about 1/4″ between the hearts so they can twirl freely. Run some fishing line through the top heart of each string, tie them up, and you’ve got a quick, inexpensive holiday decoration.
I love this project because you can easily tailor it to fit your space. Mine are about 7′-8′ high; but a mini version of this would be especially adorable. They’d also look great layered in front of a mirror. Or sew them horizontally, and hang the garland across your mantle. The possibilities are endless. Have fun!
