Celtic Heart Knot Garland
If you need a quick bunting, kid’s necklace, or package decoration, we have a ridiculously quick craft in store for you today. You’ll need a bit of Paracord, your fingers, and 5 minutes.
One benefit to being an insomniac is that you discover some pretty awesome things out in the corners of the Internet. My husband believes that I know every meme that has ever been created and I will not argue with him on it. For some reason, my brain is conditioned to storing random bits of useless graphic information I find on the Internet at 4 am.
I really wanted to use a Guardians of the Galaxy meme right here but then it occurred to me that not everyone loves it as much as I do. It’s okay to be wrong sometimes… Realizing that shattering news, I’ve just added a couple of my favorite Internet meme sayings instead. If you ARE a GOTG fan, go here for a quick dancing baby Groot. You’re welcome.
This quick garland is put together using only one supply: Paracord. It’s very inexpensive, either in the craft store or on amazon. I bought this 100 ft bundle for $8 – when paired with free Prime shipping, it’s a better deal than the craft stores which sell it for about $2.50 for 15 feet (partner link for your convenience).
Commonly, this Celtic heart knot is used for necklaces or bracelets, but when you tie multiple hearts in a row, it gives it such appeal. With a gift wrapped in simple wrapping paper (or kraft paper), this makes a great decoration to ‘up the ante’ in the gifting department. And ya’ll know me: if there’s something new I’m going to try, I’m going to try making a garland from it. This girl loves a party garland and now I have two Celtic knot garlands to decorate with!
Who’s a happy girl?
Anyway, after tying a couple, it becomes pretty easy and you figure out the whole “adjust until tight” bit. The most viewed video on YouTube is TIAT’s.
I will say, however, that I found this one to be how I prefer to tie the Celtic Heart Knot garland.
So now I have about 85 feet of red Paracord left… Got any ideas for using it? If you have a Valentine’s Day board (or an awesome garlands board) on Pinterest, would you share this with your followers? We sincerely appreciate it and get super-jazzed when we see our crafts on Pinterest!
