I am making the effort to not spend a lot of money on craft supplies this year, and in doing so using more of the supplies I already own. I got this garland idea while cruising the Valentine aisle at Michaels. That is when I realized it was finally time for me to stop hoarding my scraps of ribbon and put them to good use!
I saw it and loved it, but didn’t want to spend $12.99 on a strand of garland. I also didn’t want it as busy as the one I had seen at Michaels. I originally was going to use a long strip of ribbon and tie the ribbon onto it, but then later decided to splurge and spend $1 at the Dollar Store on a Valentine’s strand of garland. This is super easy to do and can make a big impact in the Valentine’s vignette you create!
Today, on the Bowdabra blog I’m sharing how I created the Spiky Bow & Bow Tie Stacked bows that are shown on the garland! Make sure you head over their and check out how to make these beautiful layered bows!
$1 Valentine Garland from Dollar Store
Hang your garland in its desired location. For good measure I draped last years paper heart garland over it.
Take note: I attached the beautiful Valentine inspired Spiky Bow & Bow Tie Stacked bows to my garland!
Since I don’t have a mantel I hang my garland on my shelves above our tv and place my favorite “romantic” photos of Mr. Woodsy & I. This photo was taken almost 5 years ago during our engagement photo shoot. Crazy how quickly time passes us by!
