DIY Valentine Heart Garland

Love is in the air, can you feel it?
I'm so excited for Valentine's Day this year. I love love! And now that my little girl is old enough to do crafts, we've been doing a fun new project almost every day (whew)!

To make the garland, you'll just need a few items:
Cardstock Paper
Paper cutter or scissors
Hot glue gun (or glue dots if little ones are helping)

First cut the cardstock into strips. I made ours about 3/4"

Next fold the strips in half

Fold the two ends and apply a dab of glue to hold the center pieces together. Now you've got yourself a heart. Repeat (again and again...)!

Once you've made a plethora of hearts, apply a dab of glue on the outside of one heart and attach another. Repeat until you've made the garland your desired length.

That's it! So bright, colorful & fun! We made this garland in about 30 minutes & cost less than $0.20!
We took it to her school and it's now proudly displayed in her classroom! The kids loved it. Yeah!
