Garlands of every kind have become a popular beacon in modern decor, so I thought it was only natural to make some Valentine’s garland, felt heart garland to be more specific.
Supplies you need to make your own felt heart garland
- Felt sheets in pink, white, and red – I got mine from Walmart for $0.28 each
- Heart template (see below)
- crochet thread in the same colors
- large crochet needle – one with a sharp point but with a larger eye
- polyfil or other stuffing material
- hot glue gun and glue
- sewing pins
Print out the following template and cut out at least one of the hearts. As your paper wears out from pin pricks, you can use additional paper hearts. You can print on card stock to make them more durable and then use the other hearts for other projects.
Pin the heart onto a folded piece of felt or layer two sheets. This ensures that both sides of each heart are the same. Cut them out.
Next you will sew your hearts together, but not completely around. You want to leave a section open to add stuffing. After you add the stuffing, finish stitching the heart together. Here is our YouTube video showing you the stitch we use.
Here’s a picture progression just in case you can’t access the video.
For the stuffing, I actually used the discarded cut pieces from the felt hearts. Great way to use everything and have very little trash!
Grab some twine and evenly glue your felt hearts to it. When adding your twine with the hot glue, use your scissors to hold the twine down. Number one, you avoid getting burned, and number two, it helps the hot glue dry quicker.
Your felt heart garland is ready to be hung from your mantle or strung around your Valentine’s tree!
