I believe I’ve told you before how I have always wanted a mantel to decorate for the holidays. Always! And now that we have one I am always waiting for the next opportunity to put something new up on the mantel. And now that it’s February I am wanting to go all out in pink, red, and white. The first thing up is a Valentine’s Day Pennant Banner. I was going to make the whole thing from scratch by using colored card stock, but when I walked into Michael’s last Saturday they had some already cut out, trimmed in pink glitter, and 50% off!! I couldn’t beat this deal!! Matter of fact all of their valentine’s decor was 50% off! So, I grabbed some stickers, twine, and the banner and ran home to put it together. When ever I buy stuff like this to make I CAN NOT wait to get home and make it. It’s like Christmas for me!! EeeK!
I placed the hearts on top of each other, large to small, and then the round heart stickers all by them selves in the center of each pennant. When I placed the mason jars just on the pennants it was too much of the same color and it didn’t POP so I cut out some pink scrap booking paper from my stash and put it underneath each jar and it really helped it to stand out. I then weaved the twine in and out of the pre-punched holes, another bonus to my purchase, and hung it up on the mantel. I love love love the way it turned out and was all giddy when my husband got home. He thinks I’m the biggest craft nerd, which I am, but he loves me anyway!
So…do you decorate for Valentine’s Day at your house? Have you put anything up yet? I have some more Valentine projects up my sleeve that I can’t wait to share with you this week! And to show you the rest of the mantel!!
