Today is finally the day I got my Valen... I mean Tuesday garland started and finished! I stole the idea from my friend Andrea's house because I thought it was so cute.
This is what you'll need:
Felt (all one color or colors of your choice)
Heart cookie cutter or stencil
Trace and cut your hearts. I made 34.. Well, I confess that at first I made 24 but since it barely reached from one end of my fireplace to the other, I added 10 more. Something to think about: The length of your garland has a lot to do with the length of your hearts ;o)
Sew through the middle of the heart and insert the next one without cutting your thread. This way they'll be connected.
This took me about 5 minutes plus another 10 to make the addition. Mind you, I had a distraction who kept calling MOMMY every few seconds or so. Apparently I failed to go admire the painting job he had done on our porch! (Just play paint of course although with this child you never know.)
