Heart Garland~ Easy Valentine’s Day Craft
This garland is so easy! This craft is an easy one to do with your kids. I love the idea of them personalizing the colors to whatever their favorites are right now.
You will need:
Card stock (just regular size 8.5×11)
scissors or paper trimmer
That is it!
Begin by trimming your paper lengthwise into 1.5 inch strips. I used 2 different colors, dark and light pink and did 2 sheets of each. Made a pretty long garland. Once your strips are all cut, grab 4 strips (2 of each color if you are doing it my way). Place your 2 light pink together on the inside, and the 2 dark pink making a sandwich out of the light pink. The dark pink is the “bread” of your sandwich. Staple them all 4 together. Now, pull the ends of the dark pink down, this will form the top of your heart. Grab 2 light pink strips and staple them on as pictured in photo #4. Now pull the open ends down, and repeat. Keep doing this until you are out of strips. When you get to the end of your strips, staple the ends (photo #5). Now you can hang with tape or thumb tacks to add some Valentine’s flare anywhere in your home!
