The Rustic Hearts Garland is a super cute, lightning fast, and easy as pie festive garland for Valentine's  Made with sweet one round hearts, some burlap ribbon and twine, you can whip one up in no time flat!  Make it as long as you like by simply adding more "flags" to the garland.  Love this for a doorway, window, mantel, or over a mirror.  Need a little extra help?

Materials:

  • Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red
  • 6.0 mm "J" crochet hook
  • 2 1/2 inch wide burlap ribbon (I used wired ribbon-helps it to lay nice and flat)
  • Twine, ribbon, or yarn for hanging
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Ruler/Tape Measure


Instructions for the One Round Hearts (I made 5 of them total) 

Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch in the furthest ch from the hook to form a ring.
Round 1 (work all stitches into the ring): dc, tr, dc, sl st, dc, tr, dc, sc, sc, sc, tr, sc, sc, sc, join to close heart with a slip stitch and fasten off.  Weave in ends.

Garland Assembly:
  • Cut a piece of twine/ribbon/yarn (I cut approximately 3 feet)
  • Cut a rectangle out of the burlap ribbon (mine were about 5 inches tall)
  • Cut bottom points of the "flag" by locating the center the cutting two angles inward towards the center point.
  • Using the first flag as a template, cute the remaining flags (I made 5 total)
  • Lay the twine/ribbon/yarn flat and fold over the top edge of the burlap ribbon over it.  Hot Glue in place.
  • Repeat for the rest of the flags, carefully placing them to ensure evenly spaced placement
  • Flip garland over so flag seams are in the back, then glue a heart to the front center of each flag.
  • Allow glue to completely cool and harden before use.
  • Trim twine as needed for hanging.

  1. Jennifer, I’ve been intending to write you a note of thanks for some time. I just wasn’t sure where to post it. I participated in your Fall 2017 CAL for the Forest Splendor Shawl. When I finished my shawl, I asked my husband to take a photo of me wearing it. I don’t take many photos, and as soon as I saw it I noticed that something didn’t look right about my neck. Well, to make a long story short, after several doctor’s visits and tests, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. My prognosis is good, as it had not spread anywhere and was relatively small. My husband has a lot of health issues so I’m always seeing about him and can’t think how I didn’t see that my neck had a large lump on the side of it. (The lump turned out to be a benign cyst, but in undergoing an ultrasound, the cancer was discovered on my thyroid). I had surgery in January 2018 and have been doing very well since, and I hope this will continue! Anyway, I just wanted to say “thank you” for If it hadn’t been for your CAL, I don’t ‘now how long I would have gone before my cancer was discovered. All the best to you and your family! Sincerely, Bernadette Edens
