a simple garland

For this garland you will need the following:

paint swatches (free at Home Depot, I used Martha Stewart colors)
embroidery floss
a heart-shaped cookie cutter or stencil
a needle
cotton balls
red felt

Cut your hearts out of the paint swatches in pairs, same with smaller hearts from the felt.
Use your needle to string the cotton balls, as many or as few as you'd like, then glue the sides of the hearts together over the string. Be sure not to lay the string too high or low in your heart because it'll tilt forward or backward if it's not balanced.

If your paint swatch hearts aren't even around the edges, you can trim them. I left mine for a more handmade look.
