Who’s up for a Quickie?

A valentines craft quickie that is!  I decided to whip up one more before the big day is upon us.  I saw a ton of  felt and paper christmas garlands on pinterest and thought it would be really fun to adapt one for valentines day,  This is another great one to get your kids involved with. Super fast and super easy.

First you cut out a whole bunch of hearts.  Probably about  50-60 depending how long you would like  your garland to be.  This  part is great for the kids to do, so  you can cook dinner, fold laundry, clean the bathroom, you know, the fun stuff.

With what ever color thread you like,  feed a needle through the center of the felt heart.  Try to keep it in the  middle so you can’t see the thread on either side of the  heart. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Well, you get the picture right?

You can space them with gaps between each heart.

Or no gaps.  Whatever you like.  If you are going to do gaps it might be a good idea to tie a knot on the string, thread your heart on and then tie a knot at the top of the heart. This will help them to remain evenly spaced.

See I told you it was fast.  I hope you have a great Valentine’s day and spend it with people you love.
