Tuestorial: Sweetheart Conversation Garland

Happy New Year, SF Etsy! December was quite the whirlwind, but we survived and ready to focus on 2015. Just in time for Valentine's Day, here's a "sweet" garland that will get you in the mood for love!

Materials Needed:

  • Felt in various (love) colors
  • Embriodery thread
  • Embriodery needle
  • Stuffing
  • White paint
  • Paint brush 
  • String
  • Scissors

Step 1:

Cut your hearts. To save time, I took two pieces of felt and folded in half. I cut the heart shape on the edge. This creates uneven hearts, but reminds me more of the imperfect sweethearts! 

Step 2:

Paint your sayings on the front of the heart. Get sassy or get romantic. The weirder, the better. 

Step 3:

Once the paint dries, embroider the edges of the heart. Leave an inch and a half to stuff.

Step 4:

Stuff that baby and watch your heart grow! Once it's shape is made, sew up the open end. 

Step 5:

Use your needle with the string to make your hearts into a garland to hang. Put it on display and let your Valentine know you made it with love!
