Last week I shared how to make yummy Popcorn Heart Valentine Treats. Today, I have a tutorial on how to make heart garland for Valentine’s Day. It is quick to make and easy enough for the kids to help, especially stringing it together. This DIY Valentines Day garland looks cute hung on the wall, over a mantel, or on the door.
Homemade Valentines Day Garland Tutorial
Felt Valentine Garland Supplies:
- 2 pieces of felt – you’ll want a thicker felt but not too stiff in 2 colors
- pom poms
- needle and thread
- sewing machine & thread
How To Make Heart Garland:
Begin your felt Valentine garland by cutting the felt in half lengthwise.
Using a sewing machine sew the two pieces of like color felt together lengthwise. My felt was glittery on one side. If your felt is like mine or has an obvious front side, sew the front sides facing in.
Carefully open the two pieces of felt and bring the open edges to meet each other creating the heart shape. Sew the felt together approximately 1/4″ from the edge.
You should have a heart shaped tube. Carefully cut the tube into pieces. For my Valentines Day garland I wanted the felt hearts to be about 1″ thick. Each piece of felt should make about 10-12 hearts.
Repeat with the other color of felt.
Next begin stringing the hearts onto a piece of thread using a needle. I added a small red pom pom in between each heart and alternated colors.
Continue threading the hearts and pom poms on until your felt Valentine garland is the length you need.
This DIY Valentine garland will make a great decoration for a Valentine’s Day party! If you do not have the right place to hang this felt Valentine garland, it would make adorable table decor as well. I can think of so many ways to display this DIY Heart Garland!
