Easy Felt Heart Garland Template + No Sew Option

Color!  Oh how I miss color in the winter months.

Since we live in the country, we see lots of browns and greys all through January and February.  Don't get me wrong they are beautiful, but they can get old really fast.  That's why I crave the colors of the Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day.

This time of year presents another challenge for the colorful crafter....weather.  Getting out to get supplies for projects can get tricky if it has snowed, we have lots of fog or kids are home sick.  That is why I love this quick felt heart garland project.

With a few supplies you probably already have on hand, you can add the colors of the month to your mantel in just a few minutes.  Plus, you save a bit of money since you didn't have to leave your house!

If you've been around for a bit, you know how much a love to make buntings and garland for each season.  I love to dress up my mantel or wall with some festive fabrics, felts and especially holiday shapes.

Instead of a traditional bunting, I opted for a felt garland because it is so easy.  No seams to press or finish.  Just a few stitches and you've got the cutest felt heart garland.

Let me share with you how quick and easy this felt heart garland project really is.  And don't worry if you don't sew.  You can make this without a sewing machine too!


Felt Heart Garland Pattern

Materials Needed

Step 1
Cut out your hearts and circles using the PDF template or the SVG cut file at the end of the post.  You'll want sets of each heart.

I cut mine on my Cricut Maker machine.  But you can cut them by hand just as easily.

For example, I have nine hearts and two circles on my garland.  So I cut out 18 hearts and 4 circles.

Step 2
Pin each pair of your hearts back to back with the rick rack or ribbon on the inside.  Space them about 3-4" apart.  Make sure to leave 5-6" on either end of your garland for you to use to hang the garland.

Step 3
Stitch each pair of hearts or circles together over the rick rack.  

Repeat with each set of hearts and circles.

Don't sew?  No problem!  Grab a bit of fabric glue or even Elmer's glue will work on most felts.  Instead of stitching around the hearts, glue them together over your rick-rack or ribbon.
