I started by collecting all of the heart cards in my deck and giving them a light wash of Antique Mod Podge to take away a bit of the shockingly bright whiteness.
After the cards were dry, I hole punched them and strung them on a 7′ length of red and white baker’s twine. I cut around fifty 3/4″x12″ strips of fabric and tied them to the baker’s twine between each card.
I had originally intended to tie three pieces of fabric between each card, but it made my garland too long, so I used three at each end and two between each card.
This knot is the trick to getting both of the fabric tails to lay flat and in a downward position.
So cute! Buuut…do you know what’s even cuter than a Valentine’s Day heart card garland?
TWO Valentine’s Day heart card garlands! I used two decks of cards with different heart patterns, and I love the way they look together.
They look so sweet up on my mantle. This is the first year that I’ve really done a Valentine themed mantle, and I’m totally loving it. Not sure why I never did this before!
I cut L-O-V-E out of scrapbook paper and used a washable glue stick to adhere them to the glass in my vintage window frame. The heart garland was crocheted by a friend of mine a few years ago.
So. In. Love. This is the most pink that this house full of boys has ever seen, and I like it!
Gilded feathers placed on the chalkboard by one of my boys tops it all off. I almost wish that we had longer until Valentine’s Day so that I could keep enjoying all of these hearts and girly pink even longer!
