in an effort to keep up my 30 minutes of craftiness per day, i chose to take a break from the office chaos and pull together a quick project. i had all the materials at home and after finding inspiration in homemade living, decided to make a valentine garland. you know, since it's the month of all things love...
using a cookie cutter as a template, i traced hearts on 3 different colors of felt. once i had the tracing done, i cut out the hearts and arranged them in the pattern i wanted to use. then, i fed the hearts through the sewing machine one after another, giving the hearts enough space so there was a bit of loose thread between each.
i love the way this turned out. it was such a quick project and adds the perfect bit of valentine cheer to our home. & i'd love to make more for the other windows.
for now, i'm going to enjoy this lovely valentines decor. in my opinion these homemade touches are a hundred times better than many store-bought decorations. i'm so happy i took the time to make it! enjoy.
