Simple Valentines Day Garland DIY

Valentine’s Day is four days away and I have nothing really ready as far as home decor. So tonight after dinner, I decided to make a super simple DIY Valentine’s Day garland. The title probably sounds more impressive than it is, but I think it’s cute and makes the fireplace look festive.


1 Valentine's Garland

  • 3 sheets of pink cardstock (or any kind of paper)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon (any kind will do – I used curleling ribbon)
  • Heart stencil or cookie cutter (completely optional)

Here’s how to make it

  1. Fold the cardstock in half (hamburger-way)
  2. 2 Valentine's GarlandDraw a heart. You can either trace the stencil/cookie cutter or free-hand it (like I did, because I don’t have a heart stencil or cookie cutter)
  3. 3 Valentine's GarlandCut out the heart – cutting both sides of the paper. This will make two hearts.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 with the other two papers
  5. 4 Valentine's GarlandCut little holes near the edge of the hearts (on both sides)
  6. 5 Valentine's GarlandThread the ribbon through the holes

That’s it! Simple garland. If you’re like us and don’t want to have nails in our mantel, you can make a huge circle with the ribbon to loop around the top and tie in a not. That way, it just hangs on the mantel instead of having to tie or tape it up on each side.
