I have a heart garland that I made last year hanging up on a mirror in my bedroom. It matches my bedroom colors and decor. It's held up well and I enjoy looking at it everyday. My husband tells me to stop looking at it. I love it. I decided to make another "year-round" heart garland to enjoy in my craft room.
Making another one of these little hangin cutie's turned out to be the perfect project to post for the Glue Dots design team.
1" wide patterned paper strips
1 inch Glue Lines®
Ultra Thin Glue Dots®
Cut patterned paper into 1" wide strips.
You will need 2-8" strips, 3-6" strips and 2-4" strips to make one heart.
Lay out 7 strips of paper in this order: 8",6",4",6",4", 6", 8".
Apply 1" Glue Lines® to the bottom of each strip and adhere together.
Starting with one side of the heart. Choose the 4" strip to bend and adhere with 1" Glue Lines® to the center of the middle 6" strip.
Choose the next 6" strip to bend and adhere with 1" Glue Lines® behind the 4" strip
Choose the outer 8" strip to bend and adhere with 1" Glue Lines® behind the 6" strip.
Repeat the above steps to complete the other side of the heart.
Using Ultra Thin Glue Dots®, embellish the heart with various buttons.
Punch a hole in top of heart and string together with other hearts.
Ooh, Ahh..so pretty and simple.
You know you want to make one now, right?.
I made this garland a few hearts longer than the one in my bedroom. It looks great in my craft room too and hubby can't say a thing about it.
