Valentine Garland

I love paint chips!
They are free and pretty.

I collected a bunch in shades of pink and red.
I cut them apart and cut the words off.

Using my Cricut, I cut a bunch of hearts.

I glued hearts back to back with thread between them to create heart garland

Mine hearts are pretty tiny, but you could make them bigger if you wanted.

  1. What a sweet idea! I am going to have to do this with my boys <3

  2. Thi is such a cute idea!!

    What happend to your Tasty Tuesday and Frito post? I can't seem to get to it.

  3. Kayla: I have no idea. Somebody else sent me a message saying that it wouldn't load. I can see it, but everyone else is having problems. Did you try clicking on it from the side bar? Let me double check some things and I'll see if I can get it fixed. Let me know if it still doesn't work. Sorry for the confusion and thanks for letting me know.

  4. wow! this is a fab idea! did you have to use the cricut chipboard blade or just the regular blade? thanks for sharing!

  5. It is still amazes me every day when I read various blogs. I cannot create a thing and so many of you do it very well. You can take anything and make something of it. You did an excellent job on these little hearts.

  6. I love the name of your blog! I think this is the second craft I've seen using paint chips, so I guess I better go get some before they decide they stop giving them away for free. Your garland is very cute, and I love that it didn't cost a cent!
    Happy REDnesday!

  7. I'm also a middle school teacher. Is this something you did (or plan to do) with your students?


    A damsel who loved shades of red
    Discovered she’d been sore misled;
    She had no more rose,
    Nor blush for her nose—
    If she finds the thief, the guy’s dead!
