Hearts are a symbol of Valentine’s Day. Craft foam heart garlands are a beautiful way to display one of the most common icons of this holiday. The directions for crafting heart garland are:
Find a work surface and place all of the needed materials on that surface. Cut the heart shapes from the template paper and use them to trace hearts onto the craft foam. Use all three heart stencils. The different sized hearts give the garland a special look.
Use the hole punch to poke a hole into the left and right side of each heart. Think of some Valentine’s Day sayings. Using the glitter glue, write a suitable message onto each heart.
Cut six inch pieces of ribbon and use them to tie the garland hearts together until the desired length is reached. Ribbon bows can be tied through each end. Hang the garland someplace in the home.
