Let’s Make a Colorful Heart Garland

Kitty was determined to bring happy color into the Sunny House today. She made such a beautiful paper heart garland using one of her previously painted watercolor paintings, yarn and  a heart punch.

I love watching her come up with her own designs. For years, it was me who directed our crafting… now it is Kitty. It makes a mom proud.

When she had punched hearts of many different colors from her watercolor painting, she punched holes in each heart and threaded them onto her hand-dyed (by her at last  year’s summer camp) cotton yarn. At first, the yarn frayed and it was difficult for her to get it through the small holes in the hearts. I watched her struggle and get frustrated … I braced myself as she threw down her partially made garland. She sat still for a moment. Then, quietly, she fetched the scotch tape, cut a small piece and wrapped it around the end of her yarn. She cut the end diagonally into a sharp point. Problem solved! The tape helped her thread her yarn beautifully. Creative thinking at it’s best.

We hung her garland above the fireplace. It looks wonderful.
