These adorable paper heart garlands are so sweet and simple and are perfect for children to make and gift on special occasions – they also make great budget friendly party decor too!

Here’s what we used

  • Coloured paper/card
  • Scissors/paper cutter
  • Glue
  • String
  • Hole punch

How to make a paper heart garland.

Start by cutting out the paper strips that you will use for your heart. We used four for each side. Cut out the strips for one side first, each strip should be the same width but you’ll need to cut each strip to a different length as you can see above. For out largest strip we used the length of a piece of a4 paper and then we cut each one down by a couple cms each time. Once you have your four strips cut out four identical ones to make the other side of the heart.

Take the smallest strip and add a dab of glue to one end pull the other end round into a tear shape and pinch the two ends together until stuck.

Next take the second shortest strip and again add glue to one end. Attach it to the point of your first tear drop shape and then take the other end and glue it down onto the other side of the tear drop to create a second layer.

Repeat this process with the remaining strips you have for this side

Repeat the previous steps to create a second tear drop shape.

To hang your hearts as part of a garland or as an individual decoration; Cut out a small rectangle strip the same width as the strips you used to make your heart and punch a hole at one end.

Glue the two sides of the heart together with the hanging strip to dry. Repeat this process to make as many hearts as you need, once dry use the hole punched part of the strips to thread the strings through and create your paper heart garland!
