Garlands are a simple and easy way to add a festive touch to your home for Valentine’s Day. Here are two ways to make a 3D heart version sure to enrich your home with Valentine’s love. The finished product is fancy enough to stand alone, but looks beautiful layered with simple paper chains, bunting flags or other garlands.

*Tip: Make your own template by drawing four identical heart shapes, cutting them out and then trimming off more of the sides with each heart.

3D Heart Garland with Fabric

Materials
Fabric
Scissors
Fabric stiffening spray or starch
Sewing machine*
Coloured pencil or chalk
Heart template
Twine or ribbon

*Tip: If you don’t have a sewing machine or fabric, this garland is just as cute using thick paper or cardstock.

Instructions

  1. Select fabric, either one or a few, and spray with fabric stiffening spray or starch according to directions on bottle
  2. While fabric is drying, download and print our heart template on cardstock and cut along lines
  3. When the fabric is completely dry, trace the heart template on the back of your fabric using a coloured pencil or chalk. You’ll want to make sure and trace equal numbers of each shape
  4. Cut out fabric and layer from largest to smallest, folding each heart in half, except for the largest heart
  5. On a sewing machine, stitch a line up the middle (like a book), tying off each end. Iron open with a hot iron if necessary. Repeat to make as many hearts as you want
  6. String all of the hearts together through the back of the largest heart with a thin string or hot glue them to ribbon, baker’s twine or yarn
