Yes, hearts again! I made this heart garland nearly 8 years ago and it’s been hanging on my wall ever since (you can actually catch a glimpse of it in this post). I thought some of you might enjoy making it as a pre-Valentine’s Day weekend project. It’s so quick and easy!
For my hearts I used about 32cm of wire (any wire will do, as long as it’s thin enough to thread the beads through, but sturdy enough to hold its shape), 30 pink beads and 30 sequins. For some reason I tied them together with pink string, but I think transparent nylon line would be better, or, to make them even prettier, some organza ribbon.
They look lovely on the wall, but for best effect, hang them in the window and watch the facets of the beads catch the light!
Things to Try
- Tie the hearts together side-by-side.
- String the hearts on a length of ribbon.
- Make a garland with hearts that decrease in size.
