3 Cute and Simple Valentine’s Day Garlands

Fun Blush Tassel Garland, Felt Heart Garland, and Wood Bead Garland to Spruce up your Home Decor for Valentine’s and Galentine’s

I always have trouble finding seasonal or holiday decor that I don’t find tacky or overwhelming. Most of the time, I prefer decor that is a little more simple, a little more versatile, and timeless. I feel like these Valentine’s Day Garlands fit the bill!

With that being said, I like to go all out for parties! This will be the first year in a while that I am not hosting a Galentine’s Brunch with some of my girl friends.

Enjoy these images from Galentine’s Day past:

Valentines decor. There is a pink southwestern pattern on a tapestry, lip shaped balloon, a small plant and a chalk board that says 'xoxo'.

So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day Decor I made this garland set!

Supplies

  • 16mm and 20mm wood beads
  • Waxed Thread
  • 2 colors of yarn
  • Felt Hearts – I used pink and red
  • Tassel ‘stencil’ – I made mine out of a 4″ x 4″ piece of cardboard
  • Large sewing or upholstery needle

How to Make these Valentine’s Day Garlands

1
Make the tassels: start by choosing the size you want and cutting some cardboard. Mine is about 4"x4" and I wrapped 35 times for this fluffy yarn
2
I wrapped this regular yard 40-45 times around the cardboard "stencil" to reach similar fluffiness as the other yarn
3
After wrapped, pull a piece of yard through on side and tie tightly at the top. Then cut through all the strands of yarn at the opposite end
4
Using another piece of yard, tie around all the pieces close the the knot. Here you can decide how but you want the head of the tassel to be
5
Now that the tassels are made, let's make the string of wood beads! Threading with a chunky sewing needle helped a ton. I used waxed thread for this.
6
I added each tassel 4 large beads apart. I tied 3 standard knots and cut off the rest. Total I have 7 tassels on this garland
7
Now make other garlands! I loosely sewed 20 felt hearts together and I made a standard wood bead garland!

I love how it came together! If you like the look but don't want to put in the work, you can head to my Etsy shop! Etsy.com/shop/palmettohighway

If I were to be hosting a Galentine’s Day brunch this year, I would have put these everywhere! Don’t want to put in the work to make them yourself? Well, you can buy them (as a set or individually) at my Etsy shop here.
