Love Letter Garland (Quick & Easy Valentine's Day Décor)

This super-simple Love Letter Garland is the perfect little project for you to make with your kids & add a  touch of Valentine's Day to your little love nest.  No special crafting skills required!

All you need are some basic supplies you probably already have on hand:  a piece of white or off-white card stock, a scrap of red card stock, scissors, glue, a pen, twine, & a small heart punch if you have it.

Using the scissors or a paper trimmer, cut the white card stock into small rectangles & punch out the same number of hearts.

Punching out the little hearts is the perfect job for little assistants...

Next, just scribble out a few lines to make your addresses..

 And glue on a little heart "stamp"...

Then, just glue your letters onto a length on twine.  (I like hot glue for this because it dries so quickly.)

Then, just display it on a mantle, across a mirror, on a wreath, or anywhere you want to add a little Valentine's Day in your house.

And don't forget, a simple chalkboard can be transformed into your own custom seasonal art with just a little bit of creativity.

  4. Your idea inspired me to make a garland that doubled as a handmade valentine. I typed up excerpts from my journal entries I had written about my husband from over the years and put them in real envelopes. I made faux stamps with this beautiful ikat paper I found and used a "XOXO" inkstamp to mimic the stamp from the postal service on an envelope. Thank you for inspiring me!

    1. Wow! That is great! I'm sure your husband loved that!

  5. Love it! Adorable and easy, my kinda craft ;)
