He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young
. {Isaiah 40:11}

Heart Garland

It's Valentine's season!
I normally skip this holiday all together but decided that this year it was going to be my chance to break up the middle of the so-called-winter we've had around here. It's been a confusingly warm, dead grass and no snow kind of winter so in our house it's Valentine's Season not just Day. 
We started off with crispy rice treats and then I spent some time working on heart some decor...
baking twine - red construction paper - a large sewing needle
Cut the paper into strips. I did varying lengths so it wasn't all uniform. Fold the strips in half and curl the ends in to form a heart. You can staple the pieces at this point if you'd like but I found that the effect was the same. Run the needle through the heart. 
If you want your hearts to stay upright on the string then puncture the needle through closer to the top of the heart. If you do it too low the heart will flip upside down.

Have a great weekend!
