DIY Valentine's Day Garland

DIY.png

I wanna be that cool chick who decorates my mantel for every holiday - but Valentine's Day always had me stumped. Until I came across some heart shaped cards from Michaels! I grabbed a few packs, turned on my Cricut Maker, and in less than 15 minutes I had a DIY Valentine's Day garland that I'm proud to display! {FTC disclaimer: I received the Cricut for free but this post is mine all mine! This post contains affiliate links so I may make a few pennies if you buy something!}

I'm also thrilled to be joining 43 other makers to celebrate Valentine's Day with some DIY projects - I'm sharing all of them at the end of this post so be prepared to be inspired!

SUPPLIES

Open the card and lay the twine across the fold.

Use your Mega Runner to apply some adhesive at the top of the heart and at the bottom.

Fold the card closed.

Cut your XO images from glitter cardstock. I used this file in Design Space.

Add foam tape to the back of each letter and adhere.
