DIY valentine's day garland + free printable

i saw this idea on pinterest and thought i would give it a go . . .  and it turned out just okay. but! i will show you how i did it, offer suggestions on how to make it better, and give you a free LOVE printable, all in time for valentine's day. sound good?

supplies:

LOVE LOVE LOVE printable (DOWNLOAD THE FREE PRINTABLE HERE)

small craft scissors

elmer's glue

glitter

baker's twine

washi tape

use small, sharp craft detail scissors to cut out the letters.

spread glue evenly on each letter and sprinkle LOTS of glitter over each one.

let dry, then shake off excess, fill in gaps with more glue + glitter

once dry, lay the letters out face side down and attach baker's twine with washi tape.

i think mine could have used another round of glue + glitter, but i was in a hurry to get this photographed and posted. maybe glitter glue would work better? if you give it a try, let me know how yours turns out!

hang and enjoy!

and if anything, just print out the printable and hang that up for some simple festiveness. ;)
