I saw pretty paper heart garlands on sale on etsy and decided to give them a try myself. It love how they turned out and the fact that they don’t have to just be Valentine’s decor!
Below is how I made them;
Choose paper. I chose pretty paper from Hobby Lobby (this pink houndstooth one always reminds me of Eisley). You could use plain white paper or even newspaper! I made one with newspaper just to see, and it totally works! So you could just use what you have if you want.
Cut paper into stripes. You can choose the width :) I like the almost 1″ width.
For the layered effect you’ll need to cut the stripes different heights.
Starting from the left side first, lay each piece on top of the other until you reach the middle piece and then do the same starting from the right side.
Staple the pieces together carefully. I honestly think glue would work the best so maybe try that.
I would also maybe buy or use paper that is double-sided. This was my first attempt and I love it but it would be more time effective to have double-sided paper. Although I gotta say, I love how it turned out!!
Chase crushed one beyond fixin’ but oh well, he had fun “helping” momma create.
I also had this sweet girl (my bebe sister) helping me out and a little Mum & Sons playing in the background.
Punch a hole through the middle piece, string fishing line through and hang them!
Hope you’re inspired to create them. Like I said, it doesn’t have to be a Valentine thing, mine is staying up for a while!
More DIYs coming tonight :)
