Making a Tinsel Pipe Cleaner Heart Garland

Here is a budget friendly heart garland you can make to be festive for Valentine's Day.

With just 6 pipe cleaners, string and hot glue I was able to craft this garland. You can make more or less hearts (that depends on you)! This concept/garland could also be used for parties like a gender reveal party and instead of red/silver you could do blue/pink.


*I actually bought the pipe cleaners (tinsel stems recently from Hobby Lobby for 90%, 50 pieces for only 39 cents). If you don't have any pipe cleaners, they can be bought for less than $2 at Michael's (or your local craft store) plus you can use their store coupons 40-60% off to save money.

Total Time: 25 minutes



  1. Fold a pipe cleaner in half.
  2. Twist the bottom together a few times.
  3. Hand form a heart shape. (The twisted end is at the bottom of the heart.)
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 and make as many hearts as you would like.
  5. I decided to hot glue the hearts to twine ribbon. You can thread ribbon through, you can tie them together with pipe cleaners, and so forth -- the option is yours! Then it's ready to hang as a heart garland!
