Vellum Heart Garland

This heart garland is very easy to make!

Here is what you will need: vellum paper (available at Michaels and Joannes), a heart template, scissors, hole punch, and ribbon.

Embroidery floss
I actually used a single strand of embroidery floss instead of ribbon.

Cut out lots of hearts and punch a hole at the top of each one.

Thread a 2-3 inch long piece of thread through the hole and tie onto a long strand of thread (however long you want your garland). Trim ends. Repeat with all the hearts.

Hang in a window so the sun can shine through!

So pretty! I love vellum and I love the hearts and the colors. I might keep something like this up all year round.

I think our Dreamer will have fun with this project too! I know she will want to use the pretty pink floral vellum that I've been saving ( hoarding) for just the 'right' project - and I think this is it!!! Thank you so much Kelli!

What a beautiful (and simple - my favorite kind) Valentine decoration! The light through the window just makes those hearts gleam!
