How to make a Valentine Garland?
Making a Valentine's Day garland is easy! All you need are cupcake liners, string of lights, and twine. Punch holes in the Valentine's Day cards, thread the twine through the hole and tie it to the string of lights. Tie the cupcake liners to the string of lights to create a festive garland. For a special touch, add heart cookie cutters and stamps to decorate cupcakes and cookies. You can also find Valentine's decorations, like Valentine Heart Tissue Paper Garland and Nutcracker Food Cups to make your celebration extra special. With all these supplies, you can create a beautiful Valentine's Day garland in no time! Anything you have in your craft supplies like pipe cleaners, paper hearts or doilies in different colors can brighten up your living room or classroom!
How do you make a 3d paper heart garland?
You can take any paper shape and fold them in half and sew them together to make a fun and festive garland. For Valentine's Day use red, pink and white 3-D heart shapes, for St. Patrick's Day make some green clovers, for Christmas decorations make some trees and use different shades of green or blue and white. These are so fun because you can use your imagination and create something fun and beautiful with any color or theme. For some great DIY Valentine garland instructions you can also search for online video tutorials.
I love these garlands for the top of curtain rods, on the fireplace mantel, on the edge of the kitchen counter but you use them almost anywhere to add some color and cheer!
