paper heart garland

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!
love, laurie

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.
