There may no longer be young children in this house, but I think one still needs to decorate for the "other holidays", like Valentine's Day, kids or no kids! Big people love the holidays too!
So, today I made a valentine banner for the front entryway, and also put a little valentine tree in the dining room. I typed out some love quotes in the typewriter font, cut them in strips, and glued one onto each piece. Then you can embellish to your heart's content. I just used ribbons and some cut out hearts, but you could add buttons, charms, lace, sheet music . . . anything!
The quotes are easy enough to type out, but if you'd like to have mine sent to you, just leave a comment on this post, with your email address and I'll send you the PDF.
And, of course you must have the essential Valentine's Day question . . .
Just a couple punches at the top of each piece, a little ribbon woven through, and you're done! This is an easy project that would probably be even more charming if you let your young children help!
This banner is available for purchase at Gillyflower Cottage on Etsy.
