This heart garland was free to make and Amy and I created in under an hour for our dorm room. You could hang them in the window, a doorway, over your bed or just on a wall. This project could work with any color or shape. You could even make little orange and gold leaves! I know you are probably already dying to make one for yourself.
Here is how:
Paint Chip Samples
Glue (if you want to glue backs onto them)
String or Yarn
1. Cut out a heart to use as a stencil. Then, trace it onto your paint chip sample.
2. Fit as many as you can onto one sheet.
3. Fold in half and cut out the hearts.
Some of them even included the paint color names. I especially loved this little detail.
4. Admire your little hearts. We saved the little circle punch outs that came on the samples. After you are done admiring, sort the hearts into random piles. Since our garland hangs vertically at different lengths, some piles had more hearts than others. If you want to do one horizontal garland you don't have to sort them, just start taping.
5. We cut random lengths of pink yarn and started taping the hearts on. Since we just hung ours against the wall, we didn't glue a back on. We did consider gluing newsprint onto the back for contrast, though.
Hang them and enjoy!
