Heart & Arrow Valentine Garland

Want a simple, kid-friendly Valentine's Day DIY? How about one that requires only a few supplies and will make a big impact for the upcoming holiday? Yes? Read on!!

A Valentine's Day Garland // Heart and Arrow Banner


Patterned paper (two sided is ideal), cut into chevron shapes and triangles
Glittered paper, cut into hearts
Paper straws


Step 1: Tape two of the V shaped pieces to one end of the straw. Tape the triangle arrowhead to the other end.

When you flip it over, the arrow should look like this:

Step 2: Make an even number of arrows and an odd number of hearts

Step 3: Either punch two holes in the hearts or do as I did and attach scraps to the reverse of the hearts.

Step 4: Thread the twine through the hearts and arrows (through the straw portion) and hang it wherever you need some extra pizzazz. This banner with four straws and five hearts was over 6 feet long!


I'm thinking that I'll probably hang this over the mantle now that I finally took down *all* of the Christmas stuff (whoops!). 

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day? Last year I shared a unique Valentine's Day wreath alternative that is currently adorning our front door
