Feel the love this Valentine's with this cute paper heart hanging!
You may have noticed it hanging in our shop window so we thought we would share the love and show you how it's done!
You will need:
- Card or thick paper
- Needle or Sewing Machine
- Stick approx 80cm
Print out and cut out 95 small hearts using the template below. Simply click the link to download.
Sew your hearts together in a line leaving approx 1.5cm thread in between each heart. This can be done by hand using a running stitch or with a sewing machine.
Sew the strands to the following lengths:
5 x 9 heart strand
2 x 8 heart strand
2 x 7 heart strand
2 x 6 heart strand
2 x 4 heart strand
Once you have all 13 strands sewn it's time to string them up. Hang your stick up and use your thread and need to sew lengths in to the top of each strand so that you can tie them from the stick in the following layout.
And your heart is finished! The final hanging is approx 70cm x 70cm
If you would like to make a more traditional garland you can also download a larger heart and alternate to create a cute garland you can hang any where.
