Make Your Own Valentine's Day Party Garland

Utilize your deck of playing cards to make this very easy and unique, heart party garland that will make your room even more full of LOVE on Valentine's Day!

I found the cutest garland idea that you can make yourself. It is easy, inexpensive, and fun to make with the kiddies! Just take a deck of cards and use only the hearts. Then hole punch two holes at the top and string them all together with festive ribbon. Then, you can add on extra fun, by finding a very festive ribbon at a local craft store such as Michael's to give the garland a unique, pretty and very creative look!

Use this charming paper garland to add a little festive touch for your Valentine's party or romantic evening by adding some color to your environment, or perhaps use it as your store decoration in your own boutique or restaurant, etc.  You can hang it on fireplace mantles, doorways... it is a very "heart", romantic garland.

You can even cut scalloped circles out of special Valentine-themed playing cards, selecting hearts, Kings, Queens, etc. for variety and mix them with pink cardstock, then string them on a clear strand and you have an extremely festive Valentine's Day party decoration that you cannot find at any party store.

I hope this simple party decor gives you inspiration and a little love to add to your life and on V-day. Enjoy!

What a cool idea! You know what else this is good for? An "Alice in Wonderland" party!

What a unique way to use a deck of cards. I will definitely try this for my daughter's Valentine's party!

Isn't it cool? We all have random decks of cards around the house - what a neat way to re-use an item we all have!

Elizabeth, how cool! When you finish the craft, can you post it to this blog? I'd love to see the finished product!

No frowns, no frowns! I'm the most non-crafty person ever so you'll always have one-up on me! :) Right underneath the photo, there's a rectangular button that says "Upload photos and videos." If you click on that, you can add your pic right to the gallery!

They came out beautifully! What a good idea, to make candy bags! Such a sweet gesture - pun intended!
