All thanks goes to Pam for inviting me to share with her fabulous readers!
I’m Kim from Today’s Creative Blog and InspirationDIY. I love free printables and I love simple DIY projects that look great……I mean who doesn’t right? I think you’re going to like this FREE Printable Valentine Banner because it combines both a printable and a simple DIY project.
FREE Printable Valentine Banner
I don’t normally decorate for Valentines Day since I’m usually just getting my house back in order after Christmas and then my son’s birthday is the day after. When you have a teen son and he invites his friends over for birthday cake, he will ask that you take down the life size cupid on the mantel……so I’ve given up with the LOVE decor, except for a couple of quick and easy DIY projects that don’t take over, but add just enough festive flair.
This large DIY chalkboard and wreath hangs in my kitchen, making it super easy to decorate for the seasons. I love hanging small sized banners to reflect whatever holiday is near.
This banner is SIMPLE! EASY! I love the combination of pink and red. Reminds me of my childhood bedroom that had a canopy bed with a pink gingham checked bed spread and red shag carpeting. Yes, I was a child of the 70’s and my adventurous decorating sense came from my mother!
How to Make a Valentine Banner
- First you’ll want to download the printable (scroll down).
- Print it off on white cardstock. Regular printer paper will be too thin, although if that’s all you have, go for it!
- Trim – I used a paper trimmer for the top and sides, then used scissors for the pointed bottom.
- I punched 2 holes in each piece on the top corners.
- Thread ribbon or bakers twine and hang!
See now wasn’t that easy?
The pink “O” flags don’t look very bright, but they look fine in person, promise.
This would look so cute on the front door, if it’s protected from the elements of course. Or hang it across the fireplace mantel, can’t go wrong there. It’s going to look fun anywhere you put it. I think I’ll hang another one on my son’s bedroom door. Because that’s what mom’s do…..they torment their teenage sons.
