    @arielmerms:  Just saw that we’re date twins (yay!). The weights won’t show, so really anything. I mentioned beads b/c they are simple to thread & are cheap (talking about the large wood beads in the kids’ craft section).

    Also, don’t know if this will apply, but I stored mine by wrapping each strand long-ways  over a toilet paper rolls.  A straight piece off cardboard worked too.  

    Again, lovely work πŸ™‚

    I love this! I actually did something similar and think it turned out great in our guests’ photos –

     
    (sorry it’s blurry – I just wanted to give you an idea of the color scheme and how we “anchored” ours.)

    Can’t wait to see how yours turns out!

    Very cute! You can use fishing weights. Just warap the line around the weight.

    Very cute.  I actually like that some strands are more sparse with hearts than others, it gives it a nice casual look.

    Soooo cute!! I agree filling the spaces would complete the look perfectly. That is going to look so nice πŸ™‚

    @arielmerms:  oh my gosh! I love it! I’ve done seen paper circle garlands for showers before but this behind your arch is like the cutest idea ever! I’m going to be a diccenting voice here- I like the combination of strands with close hearts & those further apart. It adds dimension.

    @arielmerms:  I have thousands of paper hearts I wanted to do this with!! Mine are from moldy and otherwise unusable books. So you use the glue dots and just ‘glue’ the fishing line to the hearts? I think I can handle doing that while watching TV at night! πŸ™‚ Yours looks so so great.

    @springbride23:  that’s what I did when making paper dot garlands… I bought a ton of glue dots (the actual product, not dots of regular glue, if that makes sense) and glued two paper dots of the same color to a long piece of floss with the glue dot in the middle.  (Here’s a pic – haven’t gotten pro pics back yet.)

    @lolot:  Awesome! Thanks so much for the pic – they turned out so great! I will now start buying glue dots in bulk for this project. πŸ™‚
