heart strings

i came across an online tutorial recently for making paper heart garlands. i decided to try it out for myself the other night, in an attempt to spruce up my office...

most cats love string, but thelonious here is obsessed. she was VERY interested in what i was doing, and made it a little hard to get the project done!

anyway, all i did was cut some hearts out of a random old magazine...

magazine heart

and hot-glued them across a long piece of yarn.

it was super easy! it took me maybe 30 minutes.

if i could remember where i saw this idea, i would totally link back to credit it. but i can't remember... if any of you out there can give me the link, let me know!

next, i'm going to try elizabeth's bunting tutorial.


also, i'm hosting a giveaway on flex family arts for my last cd!! go check it out!



  1. That's so simple and so cute :)

  2. Super cute idea! And your garland is lovely dear Chantilly!

  3. i just salvaged a whole bunch of orange fabric to make a fall garland.. i think i'm going to make leaves instead of hearts. yours turned out really nice! definitely adds some whimsy wherever you hang it.

  4. This is really cute! Thats such a neat idea to do it with magazine clippings, it makes them very vibrant and contrast nicely against one another.

  5. Cute idea. I am currently working on a fabric banner

  6. Oh, how pretty! I love garlands of any type, but heart garlands are one of my favourites. Great use for old magazine pages too! I have a damaged copy of Frankie that I got from work which I'm meaning to make into some kind of paper craft.

  7. aw I love this :o)

  8. Cute! I had a cat that looked almost exactly like your cat when I was young. Her name was Pepper :)

  9. Very cute. Its very simple but charming at the same time.

  10. Oh my goodness..this is so cute!
    I need to do this!
