I also spent a good hour and a half stitching stuffed paper hearts for my Valentine bunting. Bunting sounds cuter than garland doesn't it? Anyway, I cut out the hearts and then had a fabulous idea to hand stitch two hearts together and stuff the middle with bits of paper towel so they looked like little heart pillows. Four needle wounds to my thumb and 5 heart shaped muffins later; I had them stuffed and stitched but not hung.
adorable metal hanging clips. All I had to do was punch a little hole in the hearts and hang them on a hook. I used bakers twine on the mantel and clipped the little hearts on. Sometimes the best craft ideas are last minute and a bit of a race to get done. What good would a Valentine bunting do me on February 15th?
