While I feel like the argument could be made that Valentines Day isn’t REALLY a holiday, we’ve been sold on it and any excuse to decorate is ok by me. Even better if you can DIY decorate.  This crochet heart garland is so quick and easy to make and I must say, adds a fun flair to our (missing Christmas) mantle. Once the “holiday” is over, the garland will deck the walls of my little girl’s room. She’s pretty excited!

If you can half double crochet in a long rectangle, you can make this.  Really, it is THAT easy.  Can I even call it a pattern? There are instructions so I suppose so.

Tapestry Needle
