DIY Paper Hearts Garland

Howdy makers! Today I want to share with you how to make a DIY paper hearts garland.

This is an easy and eye-catching make that you can use for decoration in your home, as wedding decor, for a bridal shower or even a baby shower.

The garland took about 30/40 minutes to make and has a really nice decorative effect.

Heart Garland DIY

I used scrapbook papers I had left over from another project and just cut a simple heart template to draw around from paper.

You do need a sewing machine, but hand stitching could work too.

Here are the instructions……enjoy making!

Materials

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Sewing Machine
  • Paper / pencil
  • Hole punch

Instructions

  • Draw out a heart shape on a piece of paper the size that you want your hearts to be. (About 2”)
  • Select the craft papers you wish to use and put 3 layers together with a different design on each.
  • Draw round the heart template as many times as you can fit and cut out. (Depending on how long you want your garland to be – make sure you have enough hearts for the length).
  • Place your hearts into stack of 3 – with two craft papers facing up and one on the back facing outwards (so you can see the design).
  • Thread up your sewing machine and begin to stitch through the first heart, stitch a 2” gap then through the next heart.
  • Continue to do this until you have no more hearts left.
  • Punch a hole in the top heart and the bottom heart and tie a loop of baker’s twine (or ribbon) through. This will allow you to hang easily.
