we don't typically decorate for valentine's day, but this weekend i just couldn't resist. i love the idea of making something that is hand made and simple for valentine's day. so, on saturday, while ryan was busy working, i got in the valentine's day spirit by making paper heart garland to decorate our dining room. i only used a few simple supplies: colored paper, scissors, and a stapler. i also had a furry little kitten who decided to help! he really enjoyed chasing around the strips of paper! :-)
. . .
supplies: colored paper, scissors, and a stapler.
cut strips of paper about 1 or 2 inches wide.
fold each strip of paper in half to make a V.
loop around the two ends of the V and staple to make the first heart.
add on as many hearts as you like to make a paper chain.
. . .
simple and festive!
The paper heart chain is very pretty. I used to love making paper chains to count the days left until Christmas. This is a simple twist on the usual paper chain.
