DIY No Sew Garland

I love easy peasy craft projects that anyone can do, and that you can change up slightly for multiple uses. Aaliyah of The Sweetest Affair sent in this diy No-Sew Garland that is exactly that. Using a few basic supplies from the craft store you can create a festive hanging garland that is great for backdrops as they hang down straight, or as a swag from one side to the other. What’s more, you can change up the heart shapes used here, for circles or butterflies to create a totally new look!


  • 4 shades of colored card stock, scrapbook, or construction paper
  • Color coordinated ribbon
  • Craft punch in a fun shape {this heart shaped punch is from Martha Stewart}
  • Hot glue gun or double stick tape


  1. Punch out as many of the shapes as you’ll need for the length you want, from the colored paper
  2. Set shapes aside according to color. When applying them to ribbon you’ll create an ombre affect.
  3. Fold hearts in half, flattening the fold slightly.
  4. Apply glue or tape to the back of the fold and attach ribbon to it.
  5. Apply glue or tape to another heart of the same color, and attach it to the ribbon so you have a 3 dimensional look.
  6. Repeat all the way down the ribbon, spacing 1 to 2 inches apart.

Hang and enjoy!


As I said above, I love the simplicity of this project and how easy it would be to change it from hearts for Valentine’s day {or bridal showers} to circles for a birthday party. A big thanks to Aaliyah for sharing!

Get crafting!
