DIY: heart garland

I've seen a ton of these cute little heart garlands around the web lately and decided it was high time for me to make one for myself! I was mainly inspired by this post, but still managed to put my own creative twist into it!

What You'll Need:

Photobucket

Old Book Pages
Construction Paper
Scissors
Needle & Thread

Instructions: 

1. Cut out several small to medium paper hearts out of the construction paper and old book pages.

2. Use the needle and thread to thread all of the hearts together. I basically just put the needle through the bottom of one side of the heart and brought it up through the other side.

It should look a little something like this once you've threaded some of the hearts together;

Basically, that's all you need to do! Just keep threading the hearts together until you've got a row long enough for your taste! I ended up doing two different garlands then pinned them together in the center. This is what mine turned out like;

(bad picture, but you get the idea)

They're super cute and super easy to make, so give it a try and let me know once you do so I can see your results! :)
