The color after my own heart...would have to be PINK. I know its such a "girlie" thing to say but it really is such a great color! This heart garland is super easy (and super pink *ha), and is such a fun little project for your little ones who like to get their "craft on" :-). I did this with a small group of ten year olds, who I teach at my church, and they LOVED it!
All you need is:
-construction paper (you can do any color you want!)
-thin crochet yarn
-a needle with a big enough eye (hole) that crochet yarn can fit through...
-a hot glue gun
Cut your cardboard into strips (I cut mine about 2 inches thick). It totally just depends on how big you want your hearts...if you want them smaller, cut them shorter and thinner :-).
Then take your strips and glue one side glue ends on top of one another to make circles. I did about 15 of them...
Then measure your yarn to however long you want your garland to be. Tie your yarn onto the needle, and push it through the bottom of the hear, and then through the top. Pull it all the way down to where you want the heart to be. (I placed mine about 10 inches apart). Lastly, to keep it in place, glue the two "heart humps" together and squeeze it right on the yarn where you want it to stay.
Just keep repeating this until your garland is filled with love :-)
