Feelin' Crafty & Valentinsy

So, It's Valentines Week. I've seen SO many adorable DIY ideas. I want to make them all! I did one myself, it's the first DIY post I've ever made, so bear with me...

My Mister is a HUGE fan of planes & flying.

I'm a HUGE fan of garlands.
I put our HUGE loves together & this is what I came up with!

Paper Airplane Garland

I realized very quickly that I needed some assistance on paper airplane making!

 I found THIS BLOG extremely helpful and used steps 1 - 9 to get the look I wanted. I made a bunch of little planes in my favorite color combo.

The next step was to figure out how to attach them to the ribbon...
I punched holes in the paper with my needle and then sewed a little X thru the ribbon and the paper.

This took way longer than I expected, totally bent my needle and made my fingers sore. But after seeing the final product I think it was totally worth it!

I'm thinkin' this will be the perfect valentines Garland for my handsome pilot! I LOVE it!
