flower garland diy

with everything going on at the end of january and the beginning of this month, i just didn't have it in me to climb into the attic and pull down the valentines day decor. but, i can't let such a fun, pink filled, holiday pass me by without a little love. so i grabbed a bunch of flowers and made this garland for the main space of our home.

i used carnations because they are a sturdy flower that will last a few days without wilting. so this is the perfect garland to whip up today or tomorrow and leave up through valentines day! i bought one bunch and cut the stems off of each flower. then i used a basic needle to thread each flower onto the garland. tape up on your wall with some pretty washi tape and you're done!

i love this idea for surprising your special someone too. you can make it in less than 5 minutes and tape up in a snap.

what does everyone have planned for valentines day?
