Valentine's Day Heart Garland DIY Project
June Bug has been asking me what we should put up now that the Christmas decor is long gone. As a mom, I'm always pressed for time and I've made it one of my goals to spend more time doing things with people I love, like my daughter! To sneak some quality time in and give our space some new life, we did a super fun and simple DIY heart garland project over the weekend in preparation for Valentine's Day.
June was super excited to wear her "A Girl's Best Pal" dress for the first time, the perfect dress for arts and craft day. I loved seeing June's eyes light up when she saw what she had created. I hope your little ones light up just the same way when you try it out with them.
Valentine Heart Garlands
Project Time: 30 - 45 mins
Best for Ages: 3.5+
- Scissor (remember to use safety scissors for the little ones)
- Card stock textured paper (each page yields one heart string)
- Natural hemp cord or any twine
- Hole puncher (1/8" circle)
- Paper clips
- Freebie heart pattern
Step 3: Cut around the edges for instant adorable hearts
but first, a celebratory dance!
Step 6: Arrange them!
You can tape them vertically or horizontally against the walls, above a door, or even across your bed's headboard.
Depending on the colors and paper textures you choose, the possibilities of this project is endless. I hope you enjoy this project as much as June and I have. I can't wait to see what you create with your little ones - tag #EleStoryDIY for a chance to be featured!
