Quick and Easy 3D String of Hearts

 Hi Friends!

Here's a simple idea.

We can use old book pages or junk mail to make a garland

for Valentine's Day.

Lets cut out some hearts.

If you have a heart shaped punch this will be even easier!


I cut out quit a few-




I made stacks of 3, to get an idea of how many hearts

would make the length I wanted.




I went to my sewing machine 

and threaded the machine with black thread.

Starting with a long leader of threat, sew through

the center of 3 stacked hearts.

Leave space and continue to another stack.



I kept going until I had a 20'' length.

Leave a long tail of thread.


Fold open the heart at the center stitch line.



Easy to hang with the thread ends.



If you like it longer, just keep adding on!

Thank you for visiting today.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

    1. Hi Pat,
      The heart punch is the trick. Not only is it a time saver but all the hearts look nice and tidy. I hope you can make one with your granddaughter.
