I've said it before and I'll say it again.
I believe I may be stuck at about a third grade level in my crafting skills.
If I can do it, an 8 year old can probably do it as well.
All this simple Valentine banner took was some pages from an old hymnal I bought at the Salvation Army, (or any old music pages you don't mind cutting up).
Then you'll need some red printer paper or construction paper,
some red and white baker's twine,
and some felt heart stickers found at the craft store this time of year.
First, I cut out medium sized hearts from the hymnal pages.
Using stamps, I stamped "I love you"on the first one,
"a bushel" on the second,
"and" on the third
and "a peck" on the last one.
I cut hearts out of red printer paper about 1/4 inch bigger than than the hymnal page hearts
and glued the hymnal hearts on them with a glue stick.
Using a sharp steak knife I made small slits for the bakers twine to go through.
I strung the hearts on the bakers twine with a smaller hymnal heart with a felt heart sticker on it in between each of the larger hearts.
The baker's twine is simply held in place on the smaller hearts by being stuck between the hymnal page heart and the felt sticker.
Sweet, simple and it maybe took a half hour to make.
It's a cute and cheery addition over my kitchen window,
and the grandkids love it since this is one of the songs I often sing to them.
Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!
