Let the Valentine's Day DIYs begin! I ran across these heart garland tutorials by Betz White and was inspired to make my own. I knew I wanted to use felt. I also knew I didn't feel like dragging out my sewing machine... and so, the no-sew felt heart garland was born!
- felt (I used wool felt)
- hot glue
Using a thin strip of hot glue, glue the pieces together along the longest edge.
Now glue the two open edges together so that the felt forms a heart (not an oval).
Cut 1 inch strips to create the hearts.
Hot glue the hearts together and you're done!
As you can see, since my hearts are large, they stretch out when hung. If you don't want yours to stretch this much, I recommend cutting your original felt strips (the two pieces you cut before you start gluing) to be a little thinner.
