Valentine's Day Heart Garland

Today I'm linking up with Katie and Stephanie for Saw it, Pinned it, Did it! Between the holidays, being sick, a sick baby, and being a working mom it's been hard to find time to make any Pinterest crafts...but I'm so glad I did this one! It's super easy and looks great on our chalkboard.
Will you be mine????

Here is the original pin...super cute paper heart garland.

For this garland I used items I already had on hand, which means this cost me $0. Here's what you'll need: red and pink craft paper, a heart punch, and red baker's twine. If you don't have any red baker's twine go out and buy some right now. I've used it for so many things and just love it!

Punch out your hearts.

Line them up on your twine...I just eyeballed the spacing. Oh, and you'll need a glue gun for this too. Place a dot of glue over the twine on the back side of one heart.

Then sandwich it closed with another heart. That way your garland is double sided. Keep going until you've reached your desired garland length. Or you run out of hearts. Whichever.

And then hang it up! See, I told you it was super easy!
Love

I love how it looks on my chalkboard. (This chalkboard was made by an antiques dealer...I've seen similar ones at HomeGoods....or you could make your own).
