Upcycled Crafts: Heart Garlands
Hey there, everyone! If you’ve been in our store, you know we love to decorate it with all the recent upcycled art we’ve done, and this subject of this post is no exception. Our intern Betsy researched tutorials on heart garlands and found this one. She then crafted these lovely heart garlands that grace our front desk. Customers are always asking about how to make them, so we decided to put up a tutorial on these easy to make, pretty garlands.
Paper strips (we used 1” x 8”)
Cut out about 2 dozen strips of paper and fold them in half. If you want your garland longer or want to have multiple garlands, you can always make more.
For the first heart in the garland, make the shape of a heart, stapling the two edges together to make the top V shape.
For the next heart, take a strip and nest it underneath the first heart, and staple the two strips together.
Take the two ends of the strip and curl them down to make a heart shape. Holding them in place with your fingers, slip another piece of paper over them and staple them all together, as shown in the photo below. Continue adding strips of paper until you achieve your desired length.
