Heart Garland and Subway Art

Since we're living in a small space, I have very little room to decorate, and even less room to store decorations. Today, I did Valentine decorations on the cheap.  What's better than free? :) 
 I had some pretty, plain red cardstock in two different shades, and wanted to make a heart garland.  It was so easy, and I love how cute it is!

Want to make one with me?

 Cut a pile of hearts out of the two papers

Gently guide it under the foot of your sewing machine (about 1/8 inch from the top of each heart)

Allow the machine to keep sewing while you send another heart through.  
This will give it a garland between the hearts.
Now, just wander around your home and decide where you're going to spread some Valentine love!

Talk about cheap--I bought the LOVE blocks at the Dollar Tree a few years ago, and I downloaded some adorable subway art from Pixels and Paperie.

Don't you love it when you can decorate a room for less than $2?

(I didn't have the right frame to use for Veronica's beautiful subway art, so I had to cut it down to size.  Sorry, Veronica!  You should all check out the original, which I absolutely love)

Happy crafting!
