During my last spring cleaning, I found NINE unopened decks of cards in the game chest. If they haven’t been claimed yet for their intended purpose, they’re up for grabs for crafting, right? So, when I saw several versions of Valentine garland made from hearts playing cards on Pinterest, I had to give it a try! I punched holes in the corners, strung them with red baker’s twine, and added a few hearts cut from the backs of the Jokers and advertising extras for a-la-mode. So easy, and they made great gifts for some special people I love! ♥ P.S. Here’s the red sweater heart pillow that’s sitting on my favorite chair this month and the felt conversation heart garland I hung across the mantle.
This is so clever and creative! Love the hearts you added in, too! Way to go, Katherine.
Thank you, Lauren! Hearts are EVERYWHERE these days, aren’t they??? 🙂
Clever and cute!
Thank you, Alys! 🙂
Thank you! It’s always fun to find an idea that’s quick and easy but cute, too! 🙂
Simple, clever, and cute! You can do so many things with a deck of cards, and you showed us a fun way to use them!
I always enjoy your ideas! Take care, Vickie
Thank you, Vickie! Do you have ideas for the rest of the cards? If so, I’d love to see them! 🙂
