Ready to get started? Here are the supplies you will need:

First you want to get your candy hearts ready. I used clipart from my Candy Hearts clipart set. I printed them out on white cardstock, then cut them out using scissors. You could also cut out your own hearts if you wish.

Cutting out Paper Hearts

Next thread your cord into your needle. I used a dull end needle, and this works great if you have little ones making their own Valentine’s Day garland.

You can put as many pom poms on as you like, I chose to put 2 in between each candy heart.

Threading Valentines Day Garland

Next add the candy hearts. To put a small hole in each heart, I used a small cork coaster underneath the heart and poked the needle through the paper. If you prefer you could use a small hole punch instead. This may be easier for kids to thread.

Plastic Bead to finish end of Valentines Day Garland

Then just continue to thread on the pom poms and hearts until you reach the end. Once finished, you can tie on a small bead at the end to keep the garland pieces from falling off the cord. And now you have a beautiful and festive DIY Valentine’s Day garland to display.
