Valentine's-Garland 

Because Valentine’s Day is just two days away I thought it would be fun to do just a little Valentine decorating. Usually I’m not one for making a big deal out of all of the smaller holidays but as Nikolas gets older he really enjoys sitting near me while I do projects and helping where he can. This project was right up his alley. He helped sort and count out the hearts as I cut them. This was really simple and fun.

 Supplies

  • Red and pink construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Fishing line

First cut out several red and pink hearts from the construction paper in varying sizes. I was going for home made so I folded the paper in half and cut the hearts without a pattern, just like I used to do in art class in elementary school.

Next cut a length of fishing line or clear thread, lay your hearts out varying the sizes and colors.

Put a little dab of hot glue onto the back of each paper heart and lay your fishing line into the glue allowing it to cool. Simple!

Hang on the wall with thumb tacks and enjoy!
