Valentine's Day String Garland

Sunday, February 2, 2014

Welcome to Sunday's Valentine's Day Blog Hop party!
I'll be sharing with you, a simple Valentine's Day String Garland project that took no time to make but adds such whimsy to a room.

Today I am joining with 13 other talented bloggers who all contributed to this blog hop party.  
You will find their projects at the end of this post with links.


I cut a handful of different strings, (affiliate link) bakers twine and pom pom ribbons.


I mixed a "glue concoction" consisting of 70% mod podge, 20% regular glue and 10% fabric stiffener into a paper cup.  Then, I dipped each string into the mixture to fully coat. (note: this is a VERY messy step)


I laid out a sheet of wax paper and did the best I could to lay them out into a heart shape to dry.  A few hours into their drying process, I very gingerly flipped them over to dry evenly on the other side.


The next morning, the strings were all fairly stiff and they held their shapes perfectly!



My little posse of string hearts.


Then, I hung them at various heights from our dining room chandelier. 




A few I even wrapped and secured them right to the chandelier base.



Do you have a super simple Valentine's Day craft turned love party decor?  Let me know, I'd love to see them!

And be sure to check out these other wonderful Valentine's Day projects during our party today!
