Hi friends! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I wanted to do something special for my littles. I love garlands! I think they’re super cute and are easily used to decorate any room. I’ve seen the ’14 days of Valentine’s’ online a couple of times and it inspired me to create this cute little heart garland with sweet little notes added to the back of the hearts for my sweeties to read once each day until Valentine’s Day. It is SUPER easy to create and will leave your sweetheart smiling everyday while counting down for Valentine’s Day!
Materials needed: Hand punched paper hearts, twine, washi tape, mini clothespins, & Sharpie Fine Point. I find it very difficult to write on washi tape for some reason, but the Sharpie Fine Point worked very well. & I used Scotch Expressions Washi tape.
Here’s what you need to do:
1.) Gather your materials. Make sure you have 14 paper hearts punched out. Washi tape is optional, I used it to make it stand out a little bit more.
2.) Arrange your hearts the way you’d like them displayed on the garland and apply the washi tape.
3.) Grab your Sharpie and start writing your sweet little notes onto the hearts. Here are the little notes I used:
- You’re a cutie pie!
- You’re the sweetest!
- You complete me!
- I love to be your mom!
- I love the way you laugh!
- I love your cuddles & kisses!
- You’re the best thing that ever happened to me!
- You’re pretty much my favorite!
- You’re the Bomb-diggity!
- I’m always thinking of you!
- I love my life because it gave me you!
- You are one of a kind!
- I am the luckiest to have you!
- With you, each & everyday is Valentines Day!
4.) Use your twine, mini clothespins, and washi tape to assemble and hang the garland in your desired area. (Here’s a tutorial on how to glitterfy the mini clothespins).
& That’s it! Super sweet & adorable Valentine’s Day Garland with sweet little notes for your cutie to read once a day while counting down for Valentine’s Day. For boys, I’d recommend using red hearts, w/black & white twine, & blue washi tape. You can use this idea for any age group. Make one and send it to your husband, best friend, co-worker, or stranger. Make someone smile with your sweet little notes! :)
I hope you guys enjoy making this as much as I did. & I’d love to see photos of the cute garlands you create. Tag me on your blog post, or tag me @TheTwiddles on Instagram, Twitter, or on Facebook.
