I had made for the mantel in the den, but I measured wrong and the banner was to long to fit the mantel, so I hung it in my living room. I think it looks great in the living room at the front window.
I had some sack cloth I bought on sale at my local Walmart, and of course you know I always have felt square and twine. I choose to make my hearts 5" x 41/2, sorry I just kind of eye ball when I cut the template for the sack cloth/ red felt hearts.
I got the stencils out and traced the letters for, "Happy Valentine". I used red and white acrylics paints to fill in the stencil letters. Then I hot glued twine that I have on hand to transform the hearts into a banner.
This project was super easy and I was able to finish this banner in about four hours.
I found another Valentine garland project that looked fairly easy on Pinterest of course, saved from
www.redtedart.com, go check this site out she has a lot of wonderful paper craft ideas.
Gives this project a try, for your Valentine Day decor.
Have a wonderful Day
