Valentine Garland and Fun Family Night

Last week my family spent the night together making this fun Valentine Garland. I’m not expecting to have this piece of “decor” featured on Martha Stewart or anything, but I love this project mostly because it made for a sweet family night- talking with the people you love about all the things you love- I think this will be our new Valentine tradition!  Here is how we did it!
Cut some yarn, ribbon, or twine etc. to the length that you want. I got this huge roll of Hemp at Walmart.
Cut out hearts from colored paper. I used my Silhouette for this and it couldn’t have been easier! I cut out enough hearts for each member in my family to have 3 of their own plus a few decorative ones to embellish the garland.
Have each family member write on their hearts things that they love!
I loved seeing the things my family came up with.
Here are some of my favorites:
Legos, XBox, Our Baby, Avocados… so random!
And the pictures my 4 year old drew of mom and dad are priceless!
Once the hearts are done, punch a hole in them, add a ribbon and tie them to your twine.
And now embellish your garland any way youd like!
I cut some scrap fabric with some pinking shears and tied them in knots.
I also hot glued some silk flowers in random places.
When you’re done, hang it up!
It doesn’t get any easier than this!valentine garland

    I love the scrap fabric ribbon ties. Very sweet garland, made all the sweeter by the family members expressing themselves.
