This garland idea is all the rage for all different occasions, isn't it? I've been seeing it everywhere. I was inspired to do this Valentine's Garland from Little Birdie Secrets. So, I ventured up to the attic where my box of fabric is hidden to see if I had appropriate fabric. Look what I found!! I didn't need to buy one scrap of fabric for this project! I had ALL of the fabric, ALL of the embellishments, and the poly-fil all on hand! I don't pride myself at being a good keeper of a stash.....but I think I'll have to reconsider after this project!
It was a little more time consuming than I had anticipated, but a fun project nonetheless. I cut out three different shaped hearts from paper as templates. Cut pieces of my fabric and embellished them before sewing them together and stuffing them.
I went through an old bag of buttons from my Grandmother and came across this one that said "St. Peter's School". My Dad went to St. Pete's! So, I have a button on my project that my Dad once wore on a school uniform. I LOVE that! Click image to enlarge.
So, there you have it! An adorable Valentine decoration to hang from a mantel, a doorway, or a ledge like I have it.
I think it would be a pretty economical project even if you didn't happen upon a stash of red fabrics like I did! I think you could go to the fabric store and buy a couple fat quarters and go to town! Go do it!!
