Simple Valentine's Day Garland

Since the Valentine's Day crafts are EVERYWHERE right now, I thought I'd bring back a really cute project I did last year. It's really simple & really cute! Not to mention inexpensive & eco-friendly.

This couldnt be easier! Just take old magazines you have and wish to part with. Browse through and look for anything red or pink, and then just punch them out, cut them out or use a die cutting machine! I do not have a punch or a die cutter, so I made a template and cut them out. I mounted them on cardstock for stability. I punched a small hole in each side, and threaded them onto yarn. Didnt cost a thing! But I think it turned out pretty cute.

Pardon the lighting in this picture. This is my hallway, so there isnt any natural light.

I'm not sure if there are any other Valentine's crafts coming yet, we'll see! I've never really decorated for it in the past, but with so many cute projects out there, I just might have to.

Love your version of Valentine's Garland. I just recently posted about my version! I'm your newest follower and found you via BCD link party. I'd love if you'd link this up at Sew Woodsy!

Very cute! I'm sure that could be done with card stock or scrapbook paper (since I don't have any magazines.) What size were your hearts?

Cute! I made envelopes for my little girls birthday party invites last night using magazine pages.
I'm at if you want to check me out.
