Ideas for Valentine Garland

For some reason, Valentine’s Day always takes me back to an elementary school mind set.  I love the “classroom bulletin board” look!  I was trying to decide which type of garland to go with for my Valentine’s Day Mantel and simply could not make a decision to save my life!  I developed these three Ideas for Valentine Garland and amazingly was able to incorporate all of them into my Valentine’s Day decor!

I have three simple and unique tutorials for your Valentine garland.

First up is the classic Daisy Chain.

I had this left over Valentine’s Day paper from the Valentine Countdown project.  {If you missed it, click here!}  I cut out 1 inch by 6 inch strips to get this small, tightly linked chain.  Simply, connect the ends of the strip and staple or glue in place.  Keep adding on one strip at a time.  Mine is about 12 feet long!  LOVE it!

Next, is the Stitched Paper Heart Garland.

Using my cutting machine, I cut out 40 glitter-y paper hearts {20 pink, 20 red}.  I used my sewing machine to string together the hearts.  Easy peasy and super cute!

Lastly, I made this cute Pom Pom Garland with baker’s twine!

I created these pom poms using my pom pom maker.  I made ten total.  Grab some baker’s twine and thread a needle.  String the pom poms on the baker’s twine by passing the needle through the center of each pom pom.

Like I said, I couldn’t decide which I liked the best so I used them all!  Can’t wait to share my Valentine Mantel with you next week!

Which Valentine Garland is your favorite?

  2. Valentine garlands are the sweetest! I’ve been wanting to do a pom pom one, but haven’t tried it yet. I still don’t own a pom pom maker. I love how full and uniform your pom poms are. It’s time to buy a maker! Thanks so much for sharing! Enjoy your weekend!

      I LOVE my pom pom maker, Brooke! It is super easy to use and I am always impressed with the results! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I can’t decide which one is my favorite, but since I am a bit of a paper freak, I love both the daisy chain and stitched hearts. Lovely. Visiting via “the party bunch’ link up.
