Monkey (Love) Chain

“Monkeys all over the world, join hands, start a love chain, a love chain…” This is what I kept singing to myself over and over while making this post. Catchy tune, right? Anyways, I decided to add some friendly monkeys into my Valentine’s Day decor this year. Monkeys are one of Todd’s favorite mammals (I even took him to meet some personally for his 30th birthday last year) and I thought they would make a perfect garland if I could have them link arms like the old “Barrel of Monkeys” toys that we used to play with when we were kids. Once I made a template, I used two different colors of pink cardstock to make the monkey bodies and I cut out their faces and hearts from the contrasting pink color. A little rubber cement and a few marker doodles later and, BAM- you got a chain of pink monkeys, ready to be linked arm in arm.

What’s cuter than pink monkeys linking arms as a symbol of primate harmony and love? Probably kittens linking arms in love, but let’s give the monkeys some face time too…

      I didn’t make a template for it, sorry Laura! That would have been good to do while I still had them 🙂
