DIY Heart Garland

We're gearing up for valentine's day around here this week! Who says you have to have a boyfriend to enjoy this holiday?! I certainly love hearts and red, purple, and pink, so I'm doing a few things to spruce up the place. Today I'm showing you a simple heart garland I made for the apartment. 

Materials: Bakers twine, heart cut-outs, mini clothes pins, gold marker {I got all my materials at Paper Source!}

Step One: Use pencil to write out your saying, then go over it with the gold marker.
Step Two: Use the clothes pins to hang up your hearts on the bakers twine.

How's that for a 20 minute DIY?! What do you it up your alley? What are you doing to prepare for Valentine's Day?
You can find my other Valentine DIY's here Happy Thursday!
