Before we get into the garland, you can find the free crochet Heart Pattern HERE
These hearts are made using Bulky sized yarn and I am pretty sure any bulky yarn may work but may alter the finished outcome. I used Chenille Heathered Yarn in Daylily pink and Sweet Violet. I purchased both skeins of yarn myself at my local Walmart.
Each skein makes roughly about 10-12 skeins.
After following the Heart Pattern I used two strands approximately 47 inches long of some cotton cord and a needle to thread it through the back of the hearts.
I used a cotton cord because it will hold better with time and it will not stretch. But you can use what you have on hand.
The hearts are so light weight I used packing clear tape for the ends to hold the garland in place and hold well.
You can alter the size and number of hearts used to your liking.
I made 7 purple hearts and 7 pink hearts. Total of 14 hearts for February 14, Valentine's day. Yes, cheesy I know. hahaha
But also it was just the right amount of hearts for two garlands going across the wall it was intended for in my daughter's room. It was perfect!
I used the needle and tried my best to sew directly in just the back trying to avoid it being seen in the center. but a little higher would have worked put a little better. But I am happy with how it turned out.
My daughter helped decide on alternating colors in each garland and it turned out so pretty! Kids are such good helpers and have a good eye for fun decor.
The next one I make will be for my mantle, these hearts work up super fast and are fun!!
I hope you enjoyed this quick DIY and if you make one yourself I would love to see it!
