C'mon.. you know your already making V-day stuff why not share?
Now on to the banner! I love burlap.. not so much the feel or the smell of it.. but absolutely the LOOK of it! So this year I decided to get a little red and white to make a V-day banner. My inspiration came from this little plaque that my littlest guy made last year for V-day! It is his birthday after all!
From this came this banner
It's not perfect by an stretch.. but I love it's imperfects.. kinda gives it that childlike quality. So here is the quick tutorial on how to make your own!
red and white burlap
pink, red and black felt
cardstock (for tracing)
Start by making the triangle penants on the red and white burlap
I made two white for each set of handprints and one red to go at both ends and between the handprints.
Then trace your children's hands and cut them out of red felt
Then make pink felt hearts for each red banner piece
Last cut out the first initial for each child's name. I used the cricut to cut the letter first and then traced on felt
Then glue all the pieces together
Then hang on the twine with clothespins
This is how mine looked completed and hung on the mantle!
Hope you share your hearts and hands too!
