Felt Heart Garland Tutorial

I've been seeing so many Valentine's Day projects on Pinterest and I finally sat down and made myself a little garland. It turned out way better than I imagined. I love it! Here's a tutorial on how I made it.



Cut out 2 pieces for each heart



layer two together and stitch them together starting from the bottom



stitch around and leave a small opening, put a little stuffing in it and stitch it closed



your hearts should look like this when finished



string bakers twine or any thick thread through your needle



from the back, bring the twine through



and then back through toward the back (this will make the hearts face forward when hung)



leave extra twine on each end to hang the garland



and you're done, just hang it up and admire it :)



aren't the hearts so cute?!




leave a link in the comments if you make one so I can see yours!
