Valentine Heart Banner

Christmas was barely over before Phee was talking about Valentine's Day.  I don't think we even had our decorations down before she was ready to put hearts up all over the house.  I managed to hold her off for a few weeks, but this past weekend she was ready to deck the house out in pink, purple, and red.

Our first project for the holiday was a simple heart banner to decorate our fireplace.  A couple weeks ago I grabbed a pack of Valentine's Day themed scrapbook paper and some conversation heart stickers at Target in the Dollar Spot.  We used those, some ribbon I had on hand, plus a bunch of Valentine stickers leftover from last year.

  • solid colored paper or cardstock
  • Valentine themed paper
  • Valentine stickers
  • crayons/markers/pencils
  • ribbon (the length depends on where you plan to hang your banner)
  • adhesive
  • stapler

  1. Cut hearts out of the solid colored paper.  Mine were all about the same size, but they certainly don't have to be.  Get creative!
  2. Cut smaller hearts out of patterned paper, if desired.
  3. Decorate the solid hearts with stickers, smaller hearts, crayons, or whatever else you have in your craft stash.
  4. Staple the hearts to the banner.  Try to get them somewhat evenly spaced; it makes it easier to balance out and hang.  
  5. Hang your banner up!
We had so much fun decorating this banner together.  It looks bright and festive over our fireplace and Phee's very proud of it.

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?  Do you make the decorations or do you have some old favorites stashed away that you dig out every year?
