Book Page Heart Garland: How to make a DIY watercolour book page heart garland with an old book and a sewing machine, easy and inexpensive.
This sweet book page heart garland is a quick and easy project to make, and perfect for Valentine’s Day.
I love how simple and neutral it is, with just a touch of watercolour pink.
To get started, you need to cut out some hearts from and old thrift store book. I used a craft punch, which was super fast, but you could just cut them out by hand too.
Once my hearts were all cut out, I added some watercolour to just a few. I like pink for Valentine’s Day, but you could do red…or any colour to fit your decor, or wedding, or nursery colour. Won’t these be sweet over a change table in a baby’s room.
Once one side is dry, be sure to flip the heart over and do the other side. That while help keep them from curing up, and also make the garland pretty from both sides.
Next, it’s time to stitch the hearts into a garland. Just feed them through your sewing machine, with spaces in between to create the gap in the garland. It’s super easy.
In case you’ve never sewn paper with your sewing machine, I thought a video might help, so watch below to see how really easy it is.
The perfect pretty, inexpensive decoration for heart day.
With book page heart garland, life really is a party!
