Celtic Heart Garland
I have another FREE and NEW pattern for you – the Celtic Heart Garland!
If you’ve visited my blog before you may have noticed that I LOVE garlands!
I think they are fun to create and see hanging up in your home – they add color, interest and whimsy to any decor!
Each heart works up quickly and I LOVE how they look when put together in this garland project.
Read on below to see how to make your own – There are even several video tutorials to help you with many steps along the way!
Let’s get started!
Skill Level: Easy
Each heart is about 3″ x 3″ – The total length of the garland depends on how closely you place the hearts to each other – My two versions (see photos below) are about 32″ and 42″ long

Knot Weaving Supplies (Explained on blog post for Celtic Knot Heart here)
Various beads (I used a combination of wooden, plastic and metal beads for my garlands)
3 white hearts and 4 celtic hearts are crocheted and then either joined together with beads or glued to a long chain length with beads strung on in between
For my red, pink and white (longer) garland I used some sparkly yarn from my stash that is no longer available but since this project uses a very small amount of yarn, perhaps you have some yarn in your stash that you’ve been saving for a special project like this!

For my red and white garland I chose to not add the sl st edgng to the Celtic Knot Hearts
For my other garland (red, pink and white) I added the sl st edging with a sparkly variegated yarn – it gives it a neat effect
Finishing and Assembly:
I used two different methods of assembly for my garlands
For the red and white garland I found some large round metal beads (about an inch in diameter) and thread them on about 6″ lengths of yarn
I laid the completed hearts out on my work surface and then turned them over so they were Right Side down
Then I sewed each bead between the hearts using the yarn ends and my tapestry needle making sure to knot the ends well and weave in the ends
For the ends of the garland I added beads as well but used a longer yarn length so the garland can be easily hung
For the red, white and pink garland I first chained a long length (approximately 60″) with the matching red yarn
Then I glued one white heart onto the center of the chain (using a hot glue gun)
I worked out from the center on the left and right by repeating this pattern: tying a knot in the chain, adding 3 beads, tying another knot and then gluing on another heart
Tada! Your Celtic Heart Garland is complete!
How did yours turn out? I LOVE how mine turned out and I am enjoying having them up in our home.
