Valentine’s Day Heart Garland Made from Gift Wrap

Before I tore my house apart for our remodeling project, I made some paper heart garlands to decorate the house for Valentine’s Day.  I just love V-Day, I’ve never really lost that excitement of it from being a kid. I used to love making Valentine’s cards to pass out to classmates and the party and the sweets…and I still love all that. So, I decided to use some gift wrap from Smock Paper and Erin Ruth (which they both sent me to play around with) to make a sweet heart garland.

I used the Smock Paper gift wrap in the kitchen, since the colors matched better, and the Erin Ruth wrap in the living room for the same reason.  I freehand drew a heart, traced it and cut it out about a milltion times. Then I used the sewing machine to sew the hearts together in long strands. Very simple and I really like they way it turned out.

  1. I am all about the sewn paper chains recently! I LOVE how simple they are to make, but how gorgeous they turn out looking. I made a tiny heart paper chain to attach to a valentine card… super cute!
