Valentine Garland

Valentine's Garland (6).JPG

Much as with the Paper Snowflakes I made to decorate our home for Christmas, this project is really more a grown-up craft to make the house feel festive for Valentine’s Day, and Travis was a bit too young to help. Preschoolers on up, however, might love to help cut out the hearts with you!

To set up, I cut hearts from pink and red construction paper, and then smaller hearts from white paper to fit in the centers.

Arrange your larger hearts on a work surface and squirt glue in the middle of each – I did briefly enlist Travis to help with this task!

Lay a length of red-and-white twine across the gluey hearts, making sure to leave enough twine at each end for hanging your garland, and then press the white hearts down on top.

Once the glue dries, adorn your home with hearts! Travis did enjoy helping me select the location for our garlands, including our front door and hallway bench. You can repeat this simple craft as many times as you like to decorate all the areas of your home.
