I was cleaning my room right before and found a bag of foam stickers, and I've been trying to hold myself from doing a lot of DIYs since I'm going to Belgium soon and I won't be able to take them with me but... I couldn't this time, so I did this.
I was actually going to post something else tonight but I really liked how this turned out so... the other post will have to wait.
I used to have a heart-shaped collage on my wall, but I recently decided to take it down because it started having so many gaps that it didn't make sense any more, so I had a lot of polaroid-sized photos lying around, a lot of foam stickers, and a lot of mini clothespins... so there was no way I could continue cleaning without doing this first.
You will need
- Foam stickers (or just use felt and cut it into whichever shape you want)
- Mini clothespins
I started off by finding 3 hearts in different colors, and then looking for 3 identical hearts to pair them with.
My clothespins also had like mini hearts. I put one foam heart between each pair of clothespins. I only used 4 clothespins and 3 foam hearts because I didn't want it to be very long (and it actually turned out quite longer than I expected it too).
Place your photos by the clothespins to see how far apart from one another they would be.
Get your thread and calculate how long you need to cut it. I held the roll on one hand and the end on the other hand and just opened my arms, and that's the length I used.
To make sure the heart of the thread was indeed the center of the garland, I folded the thread in 2 halves to find the middle, and placed the middle foam heart there.
Then, I placed one of the other foam hearts at the distance I considered appropriate, and folded the thread again to make sure the other heart was at the same distance from the center.
Then just pin your mini clothespins with your photos and you're done!
I think this is a really cute decoration and it would also be an adorable gift for a friend. I will definitely be hanging one of these at my room in Belgium.
Question of the day
Do you print your photos? Or do you just keep them in your phone and computer.
