DIY Valentine's Garland

We all have a ton of craft supplies laying around that we were going to make something with, but never got around too, right? I am joining a group of bloggers for a Crafty De-stash Challenge, where we were challenged to create a project using only supplies we had on hand. Over Christmas break, I organized my craft supplies and realized I had a ton of card stock and washi tape that I needed to use, so I decided to make a DIY Valentine's Garland.

This month I am showing you how to style it for Valentine's Day by creating heart shaped garland using some of my craft supplies.

I am using some of my Valentine's supplies from Oriental Trading company, washi tape I had on hand, alphabet stickers and stamps I use in Bible journaling, and some clothespins I found while cleaning the garage.

Supplies:

Assorted Valentine themed cardstock
Assorted Be Mine ribbon
Glue dots
Be Mine Cling stamps
Ink pad
Alphabet stickers
Clothes pins (mini and regular sized)
Assorted Valentine washi tape

Cut out 6 triangle shapes for your pennant and several heart shapes in various sizes. You can cut by hand or using your cutting machine; I used my Cricut Explore Air.

Affix the letters to the triangles to spell "Be Mine." Decorate the hearts using anything you have on hand, like ribbon, buttons, bows, stickers, stamps, etc.

I layered the smaller hearts over the larger ones using glue dots. I also made bows from pieces of the ribbon and affixed them to the larger hearts, using glue dots.

Take the clothespins from plain to fancy by adding washi tape in gold glitter and heart patterns.

Use the clothes pins to hang the pennants and hearts on the wire in the frame.

What type of crafting supplies do you tend to hoard? Will you take the Craft Room De-stash challenge too and use up some of your craft supplies?
