Handcrafted Rustic Wire Heart Garland


Get in the Valentine's Day spirit by decorating your home with a rustic wire valentine heart garland.  Just transform rustic wire into something really sweet by making adorable hearts!  And they're handcrafted so no two hearts are shaped alike. In fact, when making, have fun shaping the hearts in whimsical designs and then add a bit of glitz by connecting with small red rhinestone hearts!


To make, you'll need:
Rustic wire
Flexible measuring tape
Wire cutter
Red rhinestone hearts
Hot glue

Since the rustic wire is already curved, simply lift up the wire from the roll, and cut off about 12 inches.


Then bend the wire in half, pinching into a point.


Next, easily shape the ends to form a heart, adding a dab of hot glue to connect.

 So easy, peasy!


 Continue making as many hearts as desired, connecting sides with dabs of glue.



Then place a dab of glue on the back of the rhinestone hearts and attach between the wire hearts where connected.


 Have fun displaying your garland on the mantel, door, wall, or anywhere your heart desires!

So simple and quite easy to make!
