This method is done with acrylic pouring paints which means they are very liquid-y and thinned out.

We love this little video on how to make origami hearts. Make several of them and string them together for a DIY heart garland. You could do it for Valentine's Day or any day to celebrate someone you love! We tried it ourselves with different colored and patterned origami paper and it looks great. It's very easy to pick up on how to make them and then keep making them as long as you want the garland to be.
