Since I am obsessed with garlands, I wanted to make a no-sew DIY Valentine garland for my mantle.
Valentine Garland – Step-by-Step
My husband does upholstery, so I borrowed his webbing for this project. I had the twine and felt on hand. Then I made a heart pattern (you can find it here). So now, to gather my supplies, I am ready to create a fun heart garland.

Valentine garland DIY is easy with this free pattern and step-by-step instructions. I needed to whip up something to add a bit of holiday fun to our family room.
Also, I wanted to make something with materials I had on hand, so this was a breeze with our upholstery webbing, felt, and twine.
- Webbing 2.25 yards
- Red felt 1/3 yard
- Hot glue
- Twine 2 yards
- Scissors (these are the ones I use)
- Fabric maker
- Print out these templates (patterns)❤️
These instructions are so easy; anyone’s skill level can make this adorable Valentine’s garland.
Note: If you own a Cricut or other cutting machine, you can also use that for cutting the hearts.

Download and Cutout Template (Pattern)
The first step is to cut out the heart and flag template (pattern download) with paper scissors.
Then trace 11 heart patterns on the red felt with the fabric marker and cut them out.
Next, cut eleven pieces of upholstery webbing or burlap in 7″ lengths.
Use the webbing template to mark the cut out at the bottom of the flags into a snake tongue shape.
Then, glue the hearts on the webbing flags 2.75″ down from the top edge.
Make a Casing
Fold over 1″ of the top edge of the webbing flags, and press a crease with a steam iron.
To add the heart flags to the twine, I leave an 18″ tail, then glue the webbing flags onto the cord, spacing them 3″ apart.
Hang and Enjoy
Hang your new handmade bunting to any place that needs a little Valentine LOVE, such as your fireplace mantel, buffet, window, etc., and enjoy.
