Show and Tell - February Themed Banners

I saw this banner on Pinterest from Little Maisie on and thought it would fit into my rustic farmhouse decor, so here is my version.

Burlap & Lace Heart Banner Valentine's Day Red White Gingham by LittleMaisie on Etsy

 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, go check this site out she has a lot of wonderful paper craft ideas.

valentines day decorations - hugs and kisses garlands!:

This project was a little more time consuming the cutting and taping took some time, but I really liked how it turned out.  I hung this garland  in my living room with my green-fir garland.

 Gives this project a try, for your Valentine Day decor.

Have a wonderful Day
