Garland is great! It is such an easy inexpensive decoration to add to your mantle or staircase. Last year I started making seasonal garland. My mantle looks naked without it! In February I put up the super simple heart garland.
What you need:
- foam heart shapes from the craft store ( I chose different colors and sizes)
- bakers twine (my favorite!!!) or other string
- needle (I picked a pretty thick needle to fit the twine through)
I figured out how long I wanted the garland and threaded the needle. Figure out your pattern of hearts. Then I just eyeballed it and poked the needle through the foam heart connecting each heart. Then hang and enjoy your simple heart garland! I hade this last year and just stored it in a baggie. I think it looks pretty good still!
Then I just added the flowers in mason jars to the mantle. The flowers were on sale and are going on a week and a half. They are still looking good!
