And in the blink of an eye it's time for Valentine's.
I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day but I had this idea for a winter white Valentine's banner.
I tore some pages from an old paperback book and printed LOVE U on the pages. I used a bold font for LOVE and a thin curly font for the U.
I trimmed the paper into a pendant shape. Next I crimped some ivory colored paper for the second layer of the banner.
I used burlap for the back layer of the banner. I frayed the edges of the burlap for a bit of texture.
I made paper grommets to reinforce the holes that I threaded the twine through.
I attached some trim with my glue gun. I think the light frilly trim gives it a shabby chic look.
In the photo above I made a flower out of the trim and added a rhinestone to the middle of it. I used my glue gun to attach the flower to the center of the "O".
In the photo above you can see one of the fence board boxes my husband made. I cut the hinges out of black paper on my Silhouette machine. I love they way they turned out. I poked some brass brads through the hinges hoping to make them look more like real hinges.
I think this banner is great for Valentine's Day and it would also work as a wedding decoration too. It was an inexpensive project too, I put the whole thing together for under $7.
