I created this banner last year, but right at the last minute before Valentine’s Day, so I never blogged about it. That is why you’ll see the mantel from my last house in the pictures below. I also made one for my mom and I thought it looked even better at her house since she decorates with more hints of red (^pictured above).
I got my inspiration when I found a little pack of heart doilies from Hobby Lobby for around a dollar! I already had card-stock and baker’s twine, so decided to go for it.
- Heart Doilies (I loved these multicolored ones!)
- Cardstock Paper
- Baker’s Twine (this is what I used)
- Clear-drying Glue (I used Scotch quick-dry adhesive)
- Single hole punch
I glued a heart onto some cardstock paper and then traced the pendant around the heart. I used this first pendant to trace all the other ones, so they’d all be the same size.
After I had all the pendants cut out, I glued on the doily hearts and whole punched the top corners. As I laced the baker’s twine through the holes, I gently tied a not at each hole so that the pendants will stay evenly spaced.
It was so easy and I love how it turned out!
Do you decorate for every holiday? I love to have some decor for each holiday, but I don’t go all out. I like a little hint of decor sprinkled here and there. The simpler way is more my style. I always love visiting friends that decorate awesomely for each holiday, it’s just not my thing. What is your holiday style?
