We all know how much I love to decorate for holidays (remember Halloween? Christmas?)... and Valentines Day is right around the corner. I didn't want to go overboard for a *cough* made-up *cough* holiday (there, I said it) but I still felt the need to do something - however simple and subtle it may be.
Enter: my idea for a sparkly heart garland. It only requires 5 ingredients, found at every craft store.
STEP ONE: To start, I found some heart stencils online (by typing "heart stencils" into Google images), printed them out, and used them to trace heart shapes on the back of the sparkly paper.
STEP TWO: I cut them out.
STEP THREE: I punched a hole in the middle of the heart - at the top (right under where the two bumps meet.)
STEP FOUR: I strung the white ribbon through the hole and tied a knot where I wanted the heart to hang. I tied a bow on top of the knot (and then tied the two ears of the bow together again for extra support.)
STEP FIVE: I repeated step four until all the hearts were hanging from the ribbon.
Pretty dang cute, right?
