DIY Valentine’s Day Bunting Banner
Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so you may be looking to add some fun yet frugal décor to your home. This year, why not try creating your own décor pieces, starting with this frugal Valentine’s Day bunting banner? You only need a few supplies, all of which can be found at your local craft store. With a few snips here and there you can have a banner you will be thrilled to hang. Take a look below and get inspired!
Assorted Valentine’s Day themed scrapbook paper (we were able to buy this for around .50 cents a sheet at our local craft store)
Valentine’s themed ribbon, or plain red or pink
Scissors (we used scalloped scissors but if you only have straight edged that is fine too)
1. Begin by cutting out 7-10 triangles from your scrapbook paper. Choose 2-3 patterns and start snipping. You can begin by cutting out one triangle and using it as your stencil for the remainder. This way, your triangles will be even.
2. Using another piece of scrapbook paper (choose a pattern you have not used yet) create another set of triangles but this time make them ½ the size of your original. You can do as you did in step 1, create one triangle and use it as a stencil.
3. Using craft glue, begin attaching the large triangles to your ribbon. To do this, lay the ribbon flat on a table or floor and begin gluing on the pieces one at a time. Space each piece 1-2 inches apart.
Simply tie or use tape to hang your bunting banner where you please. A bunting banner such as this would look darling wherever you decide, and is sure to invite some Valentine’s Day charm into your home. Give it a try, and see how quickly it gets you into the Valentine’s Day spirit!
