How to Make a Heart Garland Paper Craft
Print the template and cut out one of the heart shapes. Trace the heart shape onto the construction paper of your choice; trace and cut out enough hearts to make the garland as long as you would like.
Fold each paper heart in half symmetrically.
Cut out small rectangle shapes from the same paper used for the heart shapes (you’ll need half as many rectangles as the number of hearts). Apply craft glue to a few of the rectangle shapes.
Place a folded paper heart on half of the glued paper rectangle. The fold line of the heart should line up with the middle of the rectangle.
Place another folded heart on the other half of the glued rectangle, lining up the fold lines of the two hearts to make a 3-D paper heart.
Repeat until all the 3-D hearts are assembled. Cut a strand of craft twine to the desired length.
Apply glue on the back of the 3-D hearts and attach them to the twine, spacing the hearts evenly along the twine. Be sure to leave at least two inches at each end of the piece of twine for hanging.
Fill the piece of twine with 3-D paper hearts as desired. Allow the glue to dry completely.
When glue is dry, turn the garland to the front and hang as desired.
