DIY Heart Curtain
Hello fellow DIY’ers!
Today’s project is a super cute paper heart curtain that is perfect for Valentine’s Day decor.
- Cardstock in your favorite love day colors
- Glue (I love Aleenes Tacky Glue)
- Yarn, string or ribbon. I used crochet yarn.
I used my handy-dandy cricut to cut out 2 inch and 3 inch hearts in a reddish color and a light pink. If you don’t have a cricut you could certainly cut out hearts by hand but it would be quite tedious.
Basically all you do is measure how long you want your curtain to be. I decided to put mine in our kitchen window because there isn’t anything on it at the moment.
Once you have all of your yarn or ribbon cut, lay them out on the table or floor and start gluing the hearts on. Put one heart on the front, and one on the back of your yarn. It takes a lot more hearts to do it this way but looks MUCH better than just one with the string showing on the back.
You can do whatever pattern you want for your curtain. I did a 3 inch heart at the top, then two 2 inch hearts and then repeated that pattern twice. Make sure you leave a couple of inches of yarn at the top so you can tie it.
I really love how this heart curtain turned out. It adds a cute little splash of color to my kitchen but you could hang these anywhere!
Are you going to make this easy peasy Valentines Day curtain for your home? I would love to hear all about it!
