Heartstrings (Craft DIY)

A really easy, and practically free, Valentine’s decoration is a vertical heart garland, or a ‘heartstring’ as I’ve decided to call mine.

Get a magazine or a bunch of flyers that you don’t want, and cut out lots of heart shapes, in any size. Mine has eighteen hearts.
Line them all up vertically, and if you have a sewing machine then just feed them through it.  If, like me, your sewing machine is at your parents’ house and you are at university, a simple needle and thread will work fine.  Just make a stitch in each heart, connecting it to the next.
Hang it up.  I really want some Japanese masking tape but it’s too expensive and not locally available, so I just used blue tack, which I will cover with another heart (at some point)

You might want to make a dozen or so, they are pretty addictive, and so, so easy.
I think they’d look good with a bunch of them, all different lengths, hung up together.
