Valentine’s Day Love Banner

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner (a month from today!) I decided to make a little banner for my mantle.    I don’t usually decorate for Valentine’s Day but this year thought I’d do a few things.     I’ve made banners before (here & here) so I knew this would be a quick & easy and no-cost project (the best kind!).    I just cut out my triangles from my template and stenciled “Love” on it.   I wanted to do something a little different so I made the “O” out of a heart.     I ran off a heart pattern on my printer, cut it out and used it as my stencil…..there was a little mistake that you’ll see at the bottom of the heart where the paint smudged under the bottom of the heart but I didn’t think it looked too bad so I left it.     It adds character, right?   Red heart

Maybe I’ll call this my “question mark heart”!  (Ha ha)

I haven’t sewed it together yet but just wanted to give you a little preview of how it looks.    I’ll sew it onto twine and use some Valentine ribbon to tie on the ends.

I also found some chalkboard subway art and ran it off to use on my mantle as well.

My daughter always tells the twins “I Love You To The Moon and Back” so when I saw this I knew it was perfect!

How do you decorate for Valentine’s Day….do you go “all out” or just do a little bit?    I’d “love” to know!

Well, that is just really cute, Judy. I have been thinking all weekend about making a banner and wondering if I want to do a fabric one or a paper one. I love the burlap but have an allergy to it- NOT pretty- xo Diana

What a cute idea Judy! I don't decorate for Valentine's Day because we are awash in purple, green, and gold. I adore the burlap. I hope to see you around Uptown Acorn soon:) xo
