Homemakery How To: Valentines Garland

Valentines Garland

I’m sure I’m not the only one to be glad to see the back of January and welcome February with open arms, mostly because I can start Valentines crafting in earnest! So today I am sharing a very quick valentines garland. I really love needle felting at the moment so this tutorial features sweet needle felted hearts which I shared in this tutorial but you could easily substitute them for pink felt balls or heart shaped pom poms.  Happy garland making!
