Lovely Felt Garland

Happy Valentine's Day!! 

I know this is a little late, but today I'm talking about how to make a super easy and cheap heart garland out of felt. 
No sewing skills required!

Thick card stock, Sharpie, fabric scissors, sheets of felt (your choice of color and quantity), embroidery floss, needle

Step 1: 
Have a heart cutting contest with a man. It will make you feel really good about yourself. Mine is on the right (clearly). I obtained that perfect heart by folding the paper in half and only cutting out half of a heart along the fold. I used paint chip samples because they are more durable when tracing. John's attempt on the left is pretty cute though. He really did try his best!

Step 2: 
Use a Sharpie to trace the heart shape onto a piece of felt. Do it as many times as you want. I did approximately 17 hearts on 4 different colors of felt. {Tip: Use a pair of good scissors meant for cutting fabrics like felt. This will make your life so much easier.}

Step 3: 
Lay out your hearts in the color pattern that you want and admire your fine work. 

Step 4: 
Use a piece of embroidery floss and a needle to run a couple of stitches into each heart. It doesn't have to be perfect by any means. Honestly, mine looks like a hot mess, but I call that character! Make sure your embroidery floss is cut to however long you want your garland to be.

Step 5: 
Hang it up. Take pictures in front of it. Be proud.

You could use this for a cute photo booth background, hang it up for Valentine's Day wall or mantle decor, or you can lay it down on a table to add an extra detail. 

I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day. I may or may not have talked my husband into giving me my present early (for the 9th year in a row). All I have to say is that he knows me better than I know myself. I'll share details in another post soon.
