However, there was Valentine's Day several years ago when I made a heart garland. Made of simple strips of paper and a stapler, it didn't require any fancy supplies and was easily completed during an evening TV session, the kind of thing that keeps your hands busy and rewards you as the chain of hearts grows longer.
In the spirit of that very easy DIY, here are a few tutorials for that project. Try getting creative with the kind of paper you use, the colors, or pattern for some variety. And spill-- how do you really feel about holiday decorating?
