It's a cute and cheap way to decorate for V-day. I was inspired by the Felt Heart Garland at Oopsey Daisy (which I came across on pinterest... of course). She actually hand sewed hers while I used my machine. I thought it would be a little bit faster. Obviously you can do it either way.
Here are the steps for making a lovely heart garland (warning: pictures were taken on my phone... sorry!):
First start cutting hearts! Lots and lots of felt hearts (I think I cut like 80). I really didn't worry too much about cutting the perfect heart. I just kept the ones that looked fairly good :). I figured once they're all put together the mistakes will be hidden anyway.

|Sewing time! And yes I did have some glittery felt (found @ Hobby Lobby).|
|All sewn together! As you can see, I didn't worry one bit about a pattern. Just kept it random!|
|Hanging on my banister. If I had a mantle it would probably be there, but this works too.|
