Heart Garland

I really enjoyed this craft and it was as the name suggests, super easy. In fact, after I cut out all of the hearts I sewed them together with Bella on my lap at the sewing machine. She liked choosing which colors to use next and passed me a heart every time I needed a new one. I used 7 different colors of wool felt and I only used 1/2 sheet of each color(1/2 sheet divided into 3 stips). A little goes a long way. And as you can see this garland is super long. I love how it turned out. I love all the colors and I love all the different shapes and sizes of hearts. So fun. And so cute!

Here is the link again.

As a side note, I probably mentioned this already but I have a really hard time finding cute felt around here so I bought most of this wool felt on Heather Bailey's online store. For those of you in Utah, there is no shortage of cute fabric shops (so jealous!). Material Girls is one in South Jordan that I hear is really good and I beleive carries great felt - ya know, if you are interested. I'm just jealous I can't go there myself. And I will admit, since I know I am not the only one, that I used to hate (and I mean really hate) fabric shopping. Now it is one of my favorite things to do.

For this project I am sure you can use regular felt as well. It would be a little bit cheaper, but I must confess that I have become a felt snob. I love wool felt. It really is much nicer than the regular stuff. That being said I do still use regular felt - especially for felt food. Anyways...



  1. If I liked Valentine's day, I'd totally make this. It looks great on your mantel. I mean, it's not that I hate the day, it's just probably my least celebrated of the "major" holidays.

  2. That's funny, Celia. I LOVE Valentine's Day! I love all the hearts, the pink and red and purple, the valentines, the sugar cookies, everything! I read this post last night and I think I dreamed about this garland!

  3. I think I'd be more into it if I'd married someone with even a small amount of romance in him. I'll like it more when my kids are school age, I'm sure.
